“The most important things we learned through this program was that Stewardship is more than a campaign, it’s an ongoing expression of faith that requires consistent discussion and encouragement. We’ve witnessed not only a rise in donations but also an uptick in volunteerism, providing us with a wealth of stories to share each month.” – Denise, Zion Lutheran Church
