Ministry of Stewardship

The Ministry of Stewardship oversees the church budget, the physical maintenance and repair of the church and church-owned properties, and relations with community groups using the church property. This ministry is also responsible for the rental of its church properties, including lease agreements, collection of rental income, tax payments, and relations with rentees.  Our building is used by many groups in Colchester, and we are glad to share our space with others. 

The Church Treasurer meets regularly with ministry members to keep them updated on the budget. 

The Ministry of Stewardship works with its satellite committee, the Fundraising Committee, on the church's annual stewardship campaign, the main source of church income. Meeting with contractors, ensuring timely inspections of church grounds, and organizing congregation clean-up days and painting projects are a few examples of this ministry's activities.
