Gracious God, we thank you for creating and recreating us to do your good works in the world. Pour into our hearts the spirit of your abundance. Remind us that what we have is only and always for your glory, and that what we give for the work of your church is our testimony to the blessings we have already received. Guide us as we make the choices that will help build your kingdom now and in the future. And sustain us always with the promise of the gift beyond price, your presence among us. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
During the last week of September 2023, an Annual Giving packet is being mailed to our homes. Annual Giving is when parishioners are asked to give thanksgiving and pledge their financial gifts for the coming year. Our parish budget is based on our gift giving. Our Vestry has determined that the goal for this year’s campaign is $290,000.
Throughout October 2023, we will share thanksgivings of our blessings and ask how we might share our gifts with our church and others. We hope you will use these to pray about your annual gift to our church and how our church might serve in our community.
The Annual Giving theme this year is “Created in Christ Jesus for Good Works.” Ephesians 2:10
An opportunity exists before us to examine how much we give and whether we can do more. Opportunities welcome us if we seek them.
Feel free to reach out if you have any questions or need more information.
Won’t you please pledge your financial gifts on your pledge card and return it by October 29, 2023?
