Mission: According to the Peace by-laws, “This Ministry shall educate and encourage the members of the congregation to be responsible Christian stewards.” Stewardship is how we use all that God has entrusted to our care — our time, our talents and our treasures — to love God and our neighbors, both inside and outside of the church walls.

Members: Everyone at Peace. Please contact Cathy with ideas or suggestions or comments.
Stewardship is caring for our buildings and grounds, enabling and enhancing our Sunday worship, creating jewelry and beautiful quilts and prayer shawls and blank greeting cards, assisting with weekend food distribution, making a mission trip to Hurley, VA, or to the Village of Hope in Haiti.
Stewardship is sharing our facilities with other organizations, both Lutheran and otherwise; providing financial support for the Village of Hope in Haiti; and participating in larger campaigns such as the Souper Bowl of Caring, the Metro DC Synod’s “Gifts of Hope”, the ELCA Good Gifts campaign and the Annandale Christian Community for Action.
But wait … there’s more !
We encourage members to explore new ways (or ways that are “old” somewhere else but new to Peace) of sharing God’s love by loving our neighbors. Please tell us about your ideas.
We also encourage the people of Peace to make more use of Thrivent Action Team funding for fundraisers, service activities and educational events. (thrivent.com/making-a-difference/living-generously/thrivent-action-teams)
