In the mail this month each of you will receive the new St. Peters Stewardship Brochure. We hope that you will take time to read it as you contemplate your own stewardship plans for 2017. To one degree or another, each of us has been blessed with time, wisdom, experience and financial wherewithal. This is God’s gift to each of us. So how do we give a share of these gifts to others? With regard to time, experience and wisdom, you can participate in over 120 different committees and activities to serve St. Peters, our local community and the world at large. Please think about adding just one volunteer activity to your “stewardship giving” in 2017. And lastly, do consider “Tithing Your Tithe” by pledging to give a 10% increase over your 2016 giving level. Stewardship Committee
