What is Stewardship?
Stewardship simply put is the selfless return of the blessings bestowed on each of us by God.
Whether by volunteering, making regular offerings or participating in prayer, you can make unique contributions that keep St. Barnabas strong. Your gifts of time, talent and treasure represent stewardship.
In the fall of each year our parish conducts its annual Stewardship Campaign. It is during this time that each of our members who are able reflect on the amount of money they can comfortably contribute to our Parish in the following year. At the end of our Campaign, our Finance Committee and Vestry create our working budget for the following year. Since most of our Parish income comes from our annual Stewardship Campaign, our budget closely reflects the total amount of those annual pledges.
