Core Virtue for the month of November - STEWARDSHIP

Stewardship is basically the careful, responsible management of something that has been entrusted to your care. Everything you have on this earth – time, talent, treasure, money, opportunity, you name it – has been entrusted to you. We have all been entrusted with something in our lives, and it is our job to identify that thing or those things and then not just protect them but also manage them.

What does is mean to be a good steward?

Last week, due to rain, we had to modify our Wednesday Welcome schedule. Unfortunately, Ms. Reyes' class did not have an opportunity to share their message on stewarship. They worked so hard and we did not want them to miss thier moment. Please enjoy their short video message. Thank you so much to Ms. Reyes and her super students for teaching us what it means to be a good steward.
