Get Involved

“Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
nothing is going to get better. It’s not.”

-Dr. Seuss

Stewardship is the act of taking care of what has been entrusted to us. As faithful stewards of God’s gifts, SGPC members get involved, give back, and celebrate the many gifts that God has given us. The church needs your physical, spiritual, and financial support. Join us in taking faithful care of all that God showers upon us!
