Skyline Community Church is a growing community - we are called to let our light shine in worship, education, social justice, eco-justice, fellowship, and fun! We are one body with many different gifts of time, treasure and talents.We need one another, each doing something, in order to sustain ourselves. We are asking you to contribute generously, as you can.

In addition to your financial pledge, which will help us in planning our annual budget, we invite you to consider your particular talents and passions, and how you'd like to shine!

If each of us worked just seven hours a month imagine the impact it would have.

Please check all the areas which you think you'd enjoy becoming involved with; those area where you have some skill that you can share, or areas where you want to learn and grow Remember, you are not limited in how many you choose in each area of church life.

Blessings, Pastor Laurie, and the 2016 Stewardship team
