Integrating Stewardship in Worship

Stewardship is at the heart of the Christian life. These resources can help you and your congregation discern, develop and exercise your time, talent and treasure as stewards of God’s gifts, both to delight God and participate in God’s mission. You will find ideas to reflect on giving, generosity and mission to integrate stewardship themes into worship services or Bible studies.
