Giving is more than a responsibility – it is a privilege;
more than an act of obedience – it is evidence of our faith.
William Arthur Ward, 20th Century American Motivational Writer
This past year, we have gathered for worship through in-church and/or live-streaming services, we have continued to sing, pray, study scripture, and share the fellowship that has sustained our congregation for the past 130 years. Generous giving allows us to have a vital ministry for our own members and for those beyond our doors through the Medical Loan Closet; feeding the hungry; providing a safe place for 12-Step programs to meet and rallying to the needs of people in crisis throughout the world.
Every fall we talk about stewardship. This year’s theme, “Past, Present, and Future”, reminds us that our support in the form of a pledge to St. John’s operating budget has always been and will continue to be an essential component of our ability to carry out the work of the church through our ministries, our witness, and our care for one another. We may not know what lies ahead of us, but we are confident in God’s abiding and steadfast love.
As we begin this year’s campaign, we hope that we can count on the support of our members and friends in 2024. This annual appeal is the most direct way that we can support the mission and ministry of St. John’s Episcopal Church in the coming year. By sharing our gifts, we build up ourselves as well as our community. Denise Skillman – Treasurer
