Living as a Steward of God

Join the conversation

Scripture tells us that God made the world and everything in it. We do not own it. We are stewards of his provision for us. That includes serving God in all aspects of our lives: family, work, community, and our church.  

Please join your church family in posting below the ways you are sharing the love of Christ in everyday life. If you do not want your name shared, please just type “Anonymous” in the Name field.

    I am serving St. Matthew this year as the Council president and helping with many of the marketing activities. I am leading my daughter’s girl scout troop this year to bring joy and community back into the lives of the girls who have missed the togetherness for so long.

    Approximately every two weeks a friend now in assisted living calls and asks me to take him shopping. After shopping we share a meal at Panera. He is a brother in Christ for whom life is closing in. I enjoy his conversation and observations on life.

    I have been serving the St Matthew family by being on the Investment, Building and Finance committees. I have also served as treasurer for over 5 years and was on church council. I also volunteer for DuPage Habitat for Humanity, Back Bay Mission, AARP Tax Aide, and for Special Camps for adults with special needs. One of my most rewarding moments was handing the keys for a new house to the homeowner. God has blessed me in many ways and I want to give back in ways that utilizes my talents.

    I have been serving God and my St.Matthew family by being the head of Christian Education committee for many years. Our committee has organized Trunk or Treat, the Birthday Party for Jesus, care packages for our military and college students, the Easter Egg hunt and much more. I have helped plan and organize Vacation Bible School for years. I have been the head of adult education, participated on the church council several times and have served St. Matthew by teaching VBS and Sunday school. I have served our greater community by being a girl scout leader for 6 years, volunteering for Western DuPage Special Recreation Association, by heading up the Wheaton Warrenville South Show Choir benefit, as the team mom for cross country and track at WWSHS and I have organized and run a kids cancer camp for 20 years. I have been blessed beyond measure and giving back to our church and our community is my way of offering thanks for all the goodness in my life.

    Serving on various committees at St. Matthew helps me and others. I currently serve as council secretary and help plan social events as part of the congregational life committee. I also volunteer in the nursery, help clean up snacks after worship, and play euchre. In addition to my day job as a licensed clinical social worker for a DCFS program, I contribute a significant amount of time to animal rescue and have fostered over 100 dogs. Sharing my time and talents in these ways helps me share the love of Christ and feel more connected to St. Matthew and community members. Come join us, won’t you?

    I am so blessed that God has given me the opportunity to share the love of Christ in so many ways. At St. Matthew, I am currently on the Staff Relations Committee, and help out with Congregational Life, and miscellaneous other projects like the sound booth and helping to spruce up our fellowship hall. I am also part of a great team of St. Matthew volunteers who deliver meals through Meals on Wheels. Since COVID began, I have been volunteering at the Peoples Resource Center Food Pantry. Each summer for the past 20 years, I volunteer at a residential camp for adults with special needs. Beyond that, I strive to share the love of Christ everyday in my relationships with family and friends.

    I truly feel that I have been blessed beyond measure in my life, and belonging to St. Matthew has added to that feeling. I am grateful that I have been able to serve God, my family, and my community because of the privileges that I have been afforded. I have happily served as a Cub Scout and Boy Scout leader (over 13 years total) , worked on PTA boards, scholarship committees, and helped with many school events over the years. I have served St. Matthew through Council, the Christian Education committee, and I currently coordinate the Meals on Wheels program for our team of volunteers as well as the Prairie Path Clean-up committee. For me, the words of St. Francis of Assisi ” for it is in giving that we receive” are SO true!
