Financial Counseling

The Stewardship Ministry of First Baptist Woodstock was created to assist the church family and our community to become the very best stewards with all that God has entrusted to us.

1 Corinthians 4:2 says, “Moreover it is required in stewards that one be found faithful.”

God has given us everything that we have and ALL we have belongs to God. He has commanded us to be “faithful” with the possessions that He has placed in our care. We teach, train, and counsel church families and our community to be faithfully obedient to God’s Holy Word, especially in the stewardship of money and possessions, in order to know Christ more intimately, be free to serve Him more effectively, and to enjoy the greatest life possible for you and your family.
