Stewardship means to care for something well, and it's the word many churches use to talk about regular giving. Naturally, a big part of stewardship includes caring for buildings and covering salaries. Mundane? Maybe. But that practical view misses the "so that we can" component of our role as church.
We give at Westwood "so that we can" be better stewards for a world that needs us. Stewardship (and our building, salaries, ministries and partnerships it enables—not to mention yearly vision items) is Westwood's engine for living out our mission to be a vital and necessary part of the world. It's not, then, about fixing boilers. It's about creating a warm incubator for faith, and discovering and living out our vocation as people of God.
Your giving is fuel for the world we hope and strive for.
We invite you to make your commitment to Ministries + Outreach by November 20.
Materials will also be mailed to you.
Your 2023 gifts will help us:
Feed our community, local and global.
Be fed by song, prayer and God’s word in our variety of worship services.
Support a new pastor.
Add back a Children, Youth and Family Staff member.
Support ministries in the U.S., around the world.
