All we have is a gift from God.
What we do with what we have is our gift to God.
St. Bartholomew is a stewardship faith community. It is a way of living each day in gratitude for all the blessings that God has given to us. The roots of stewardship can be found in the Bible, which tells us over and over that God is the Creator and Giver of all gifts. It is our responsibility to show our gratitude to God for these gifts, by giving back to Him the “first fruits” to do God’s work on earth.
Schedule Giving allows you to set your own giving amount, giving frequency, and fund designation. Choosing to give electronically helps St. Bartholomew by reducing administrative costs and improves the day-to-day financial situation of the parish.
