“…where we spend our time, where we spend our energy and where we spend our money talks about what we believe and what we feel is important to us.”
Congregations that approach financial stewardship from a biblical perspective do not view the money Christians give to their church merely as a way to pay its bills. Rather, such congregations see financial contributions as a way to help people grow spiritually in their relationship with God by supporting their church’s mission and ministry with a percentage of their incomes.
Our congregation’s finance committee has selected the Consecration Sunday Stewardship Program as a way to teach the biblical and spiritual principles of generous giving in our stewardship education emphasis this year.

Sharing what we have is an act of Love...
We love because God loved us first through Christ.
The people of Chelsea First commit to following Jesus’ example in their our daily lives. We believe that giving is part of following Jesus (discipleship). We strive to reflect the image of God in the world, reminding one another that “blessedness” is our center. In gratitude, we share our time, talents, and money. No matter the size, every contribution makes a difference and supports the work of Christ in the world today.
