Every Sunday we sing these works in our effort to live out a spirit of gratitude and abundance in our everyday lives. Our members and friends support the mission of the church through financial giving and the volunteering of time and talents at the church and our partner organizations.
Christian stewardship is a spiritual discipline, both individually and collectively within the membership of a congregation. At Mayflower, we believe we are stewards of the resources that have been given to us, and take seriously our responsibility to use those resources for the good of all. We people of faith want every penny we spend or give to be in line with what God wants for the world.
We are called to give in proportion to our income and the demands upon it and in proportion to our sense of justice and of God’s ownership of all wealth. The Stewardship Ministry suggests a “modern” tithe, which means you share approximately 5% with the church and 5% with other charities of your choice.
Each month Mayflower also collects a special offering for a designated partner. You can give online or by leaving a check marked “Special Offering” in the offering plate in worship.
Our December special offering goes to Urban Homeworks, whose mission is to perpetuate the hope of Jesus Christ through innovative community development that produces dignified housing for families of low income, a strategic network of good neighbors and the redemptive development of real estate.
Here are the words Urban Homeworks offers to Mayflower in return: “We couldn’t be more thankful for our friends at Mayflower and Trust Builders. You’ve transformed neighborhood problems into neighborhood pride. Thank you for being co-conspirators of this potent, penetrating, and compelling hope!”
