The St. Nicholas Cathedral Stewardship Committee seeks to help parishioners better understand the meaning of stewardship in the Orthodox Church.  God expects us to manifest our profession of faith in His Word and His Teachings through our actions and our good deeds.  Our time, talents, and resources are all gifts lovingly given to us by God.  In thanksgiving and appreciation, we must offer these three gifts in service to God and His Church.  While the church certainly needs and benefits from the giving of our time, talents, and resources, by far the more important reason for us to offer these gifts in service to the church is for our salvation.  There is guidance in the Bible and in the teachings of the Holy Orthodox Church to reinforce this belief.  The Stewardship Committee is prepared to work with the faithful at St. Nicholas Cathedral to help them find ways to best give of their time, talents, and resources.  We need to demonstrate our love of God and our thanksgiving for all He has given us far more that the church needs what we have to offer.

“The point is this:  he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.  Each one must do as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.  And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that you may always have enough of everything and may provide in abundance for every good work.”

2 Corinthians 9: 6-8

Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”
