Stewardship and the Annual Giving Campaign
Dear Friends in Christ,
It's time again for our annual giving campaign. Now, don't stop reading, this is important. The church counts on it's members to offer financial support so that we can do the work we're called to do. It's a wonderful partnership that brings glory to God's name and benefits to God's people.
Because of your generosity we are able to pay our employees, print bulletins and keep the electricity on. You help to make it possible for us to offer support for those who grieve, prayers for the sick, and services of celebration like baptism and weddings. You help keep our programs running and make it possible for us to provide excellent Christian Education for families as they develop their faith. Your pledge is why we have such an amazing choir. The fact that you care means that we can offer support to those in need and put our faith in action by serving our neighbors.
The pandemic has been difficult on the church. I know that doesn't surprise you because the pandemic has been hard on everyone. And even though we're not out of the woods yet, there's a great excitement that's growing at St. Paul's. More and more people are attending services in person and online. There's a wonderful energy as the Spirit moves among us offering healing, inspiration and the calling to work together to serve the world in the name of Christ.
Please join us in making a financial commitment - make a pledge to support the church through the year 2022. We need your support and ask you to join us on this journey of faith.
You’re invited to join us on Sunday, September 26, 2021
