"Be filled with the Spirit, speaking in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making melody in your heart to the Lord."
As Christians, we affirm that God gives. Our God is the Creator and has given us everything – our world, our lives, and our treasures. In God’s gift of Jesus, we see clearly who God is. Jesus came that we might live – a gift so wonderful it’s hard to comprehend. As we claim the wonders of God’s gift of grace, our natural response is joyful gratitude. Enabled by the Spirit, we become new people and want to relate to our community and the world as God did – with unbounded generosity.
At Palms, our Stewardship Ministry helps us to be faithful stewards of God’s gifts both as individuals and as a Christian community. The disciple works to foster member generosity, stewards the gifts of Palms’ talented staff and wonderful facilities and seeks to serve and support of Palms ministries.
