Elmhurst Christian Reformed Church Online Stewardship Survey FAQs
Why should I participate?
The information gained from the survey will help our church continue to grow its members to view all the resources with which God blesses us—our finances, our time & our abilities—in a way that honors Him and grows His Kingdom. In addition, many survey participants have found this experience to be of great personal value. It's a time to reflect on the spiritual relationship between the gifts God has provided and our management of those resources.

Stewardship of our time, talent and treasure and creation is a spiritual issue. As a body of believers, our priority is the spiritual health of our members. Stewardship affects every aspect of our lives. The church is the place to encourage and help equip Christians in their daily walk.
Each person's participation will help provide an accurate profile of the attitudes and practices of our congregation as it relates to stewardship.This survey will not only provide a factual profile of our members as a whole, but will help our church better focus on the strengths and challenges that the survey provides.
We hope this information will encourage you now to complete the online survey. If you have other questions that you feel need answering in order to participate in the survey, please contact the Ten Talents Team representative, Kathy Jelinek at firstname.lastname@example.org.
