At First Unitarian Church of St. Louis, we seek an environment of stewardship where members are inspired to contribute their knowledge and special skills. Members are asked to extend themselves, to serve, and to be enlightened managers of both personal and congregational resources.
We volunteer our time and talents to enrich the life of the church. We also help those in need in surrounding communities and do so with sensitivity to the environment and the larger world around us.
To support the church and our good works, members make a financial commitment, or pledge, each year, knowing that the church has a budget for staff and program expenses and obligations that we must all share.
While we engage in fundraising activities throughout the year, we view stewardship as much more than fundraising. Authentic stewardship is the nurturing and the growing of one's heartfelt desire to serve and contribute one's time, talent and financial resources.
