We pray that you will also commit your time and talent to our teams and ministries. However, you feel led by the Spirit, we know that God will bless you abundantly.
Stewardship: Giving to God Deciding to commit financially to a community of faith is a spiritual decision which should be made after prayer, reflection, and discernment. In response to God’s generosity and abundance, we have the privilege of determining how we may become grateful and responsible stewards of God’s great gifts. As part of our mission to be a beacon of hope reflecting God’s unconditional love for all people, we commit our time, talent, and treasure to the work of being an open and affirming congregation with a spirituality that is positive, progressive, and practical. Your gift to All God’s Children makes possible a vibrant, dynamic mission and ministry that announce a prophetic message of liberation and inclusion throughout Minnesota and beyond.
Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. —2 Corinthians 9:7
