The United Church of Canada website states:

“Christian stewardship is everything we think, say, and do after we say “I believe.”

Stewardship and discipleship is

  • how we spend our time, and employ our talents and gifts
  • how we care for our bodies and make healthy choices
  • how we set our priorities around money and possessions
  • how we manage our relationships, care for the environment, and practise our faith

We participate in God’s mission by giving the gifts that God has entrusted to us. These gifts are everything that we have: our time, our talents and skills, and our treasure.

We become stewards and disciples when we realize God’s grace in our lives. This inspires us to respond with gratitude and generosity by

  • being thankful: thanking God in prayer and worship
  • taking care: being caretakers of all that has been given to us
  • giving generously from what we have been given to make a difference in our world

We are each given particular gifts of the Spirit.
For the sake of the world,
God calls all followers of Jesus to Christian ministry.
In the church,
some are called to specific ministries of leadership,
both lay and ordered;
some witness to the good news;
some uphold the art of worship;
some comfort the grieving and guide the wandering;
some build up the community of wisdom;
some stand with the oppressed and work for justice.
To embody God’s love in the world,
the work of the church requires the ministry and discipleship
of all believers. (A Song of Faith)”

At Brechin United Church, we strive constantly to respond generously to God by giving of our selves; our time, talent and financial resources.  We welcome the commitment of everyone who wishes to join in these efforts. Our ministries are always in need of members to join our teams in carrying out their work, and our finances are always stretched in supporting the work of the church.  Please respond generously.
