Church Ministry Schedule



Dear Parishioners,
Greetings in the name of our Risen Lord Jesus Christ!

As we take part in our annual stewardship season, I invite us all to a time of prayerful reflection. I would like us to consider three things during this time:

Give thanks for our lives—for family and friends, work and play, and for our shared faith in Christ that we express in and through the life and ministry of this church. For those of us who had a painful year—the death of a loved one, an illness, or some other loss—to still give thanks for God’s presence through people who love and care for us.

Our community of faith and the part it plays in our lives—and the part we play in our common life. As a Christian, God calls us to live our faith in Christ through relationships, especially as part of the church. Here we gather to worship; to learn our faith-- and be encouraged to live it out; and to find grace to love and forgive one another.

The challenges we face in the world, not only in this election season, but for the months and years after the election, as we seek to “do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God” as the prophet Micah proclaimed. Church can be a source for healing in our society and can provide an alternative way for people to practice understanding, compassion, and cooperation.

Our Stewardship theme this year is “Learn, Pray, Respond.” As you hear this message from the stewardship committee, please take time to reflect on your life, our church, and the world. There is much for which to be grateful-- and still much work to do. All of us are needed to give support in different ways. For those of you who give so much already, thank you! Your generosity has enabled our building expansion and our continuing investment in ministry-- especially in making The Rev. Bonnie Underwood a full-time associate.

If you have not given in the past because you are new to our community-- or for any other reason-- I ask you to “learn, pray, and respond” during this campaign so your vestry can plan for and so you can be more fully involved in our shared ministry in 2017. Together let us give thanks for our expanded church, thriving parish, and our participation in God’s mission to the world. We look forward to hearing from you and your response to God’s grace among us.
