Financial Stewardship

As Christians, we believe that all life is a gift from God, and that everything we have ultimately belongs to God. We give of the financial resources God has given us because God uses them to change the world and to change us. Grateful and generous giving is important to our life of faith in God. Generosity is one of Incarnation’s four core values, shaping our decisions and actions.

For those of you who made a 2019 commitment, thank you for your participation in preparing for Incarnation’s ministry this year. Together we are making an impact both locally and globally by feeding the hungry in heart, body, mind and spirit. Every gift matters.
