Cairn understands giving holistically
As God’s people we are stewards of all aspects of life. We give of our financial resources to support our faith community and we also give our time and talent. As good stewards we want to manage all of our resources wisely and responsibly. We are concerned about social consequences, about justice, about responsible use of the earth and its resources.
Stewardship of Cairn’s financial resources means gifts from many work together to carry out our mission. In these challenging times of social separation, we may remember the blessings of our community of faith through giving.
