Stewardship of Our Passions

During the 2015–16 program year, LCH continues on our journey of “year-round” stewardship by exploring how we as people of faith and as a congregation can get in touch with their passions and to put them to work for the mission God has entrusted to us as individuals and to LCH as a congregation.

The goal of stewardship is to help God’s people grow in their relationship with Jesus through the use of their time, talents, and finances that God has entrusted to us. It is about using our whole lives to serve and love God.
