For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:19-21)
The Stewardship ministry impacts the congregational and personal lives of our membership by promoting and encouraging each member’s skills and resources to further Ascensions mission and vision.
We strive to lift up use of time, talents and treasures that will result in solid and growing support for the ministries of our congregation.
We work very closely with the Finance Ministry providing them up to date information of gifting and pledging to help the budget process.
The Finance and Budget Committee is responsible for managing and overseeing the financial affairs of the congregation in accordance with the by-laws and constitution of the congregation and the approved budget. They will prepare the annual budget for the submittal to the Congregation Council, they will work closely with the Stewardship Committee to coordinate the pledges and budgeting of income and this committee will supervise the financial affairs of the Congregation throughout the year. The Treasurer of the congregation will be a member of this committee.
The Finance committee meets monthly to review the financial condition of Ascension and to examine ways of controlling or reducing expenses and making the best use of our financial resources.
