Growing Generous Hearts

As we continue our journey of discipleship — to Be, Grow, and Make Disciples — we recognize that gratitude for all that God has given us is the cornerstone of our faith journey.  Disciples are good stewards of all of God’s gifts—time, talent and treasure.  As we grow in our relationship with God, gratitude for His gifts changes our hearts and minds.  As we know, everything we have is God’s already.
