Dear St. Andrew’s Family Members,
Wouldn’t we all love to “flourish in faith” and be certain of God’s presence at all times and in all circumstances? Flourish in Faith is the theme for our annual financial stewardship program and will include a variety of opportunities for exploring scriptures and deepening our faith.
During October we will explore God’s vision for St. Andrew’s and invites members to prayerfully determine God’s will for the gifts and resources with which they have been blessed. These are the seeds we will plant for our journey:
· Beginning on October 6 through October 27, bulletin inserts written by Episcopal stewardship leaders across the country will provide reflections on stewardship and faithful giving.
· On October 13 and October 20, two parishioners will provide personal thankfulness stories of how they have flourished in faith through intentional giving of their financial resources.
· On October 27, we will meet over brunch provided by the Stewardship Committee with some help from the Vestry to reflect on how we can flourish in faith.
· Covenant Sunday is November 10. Please join us to place your pledge on the altar as we make promises of offering our time, talents, and treasure to God.
The richness of the journey is dependent upon each of us being open to God’s leading. As we seek to lay a fertile foundation in which seeds may be planted to blossom in our community, let us join together to do God’s work through St. Andrew’s
Together in Christ,
The Stewardship Committee
