Generous Living

Our Perspective of Generous Living   
​At Hope Lutheran Church we believe that God created us to be good stewards of the life that he has given to us. This stewardship of life includes the faithful use of everything God has provided us—including our time, talents, and financial resources—to reflect God's glory. In Psalm 24:1 we read "The earth is the Lord's and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it." We realize that the way we live our life and the way we both use and share our resources reflects what we believe about these biblical concepts on generosity and faithfulness.
