From THE STEWARDSHIP COMMITTEE
Over the last few weeks, we have learned about our annual stewardship campaign theme, Rooted in Abundance. It reminds us that we are inspired to share ourselves and our gifts with St. Paul’s because so much has been given to us by God. The metaphors we have used – forests, trees, and roots – represent the way we dig deep into what nourishes our work, service, and joy in a world that needs God’s love.
We are grateful for the opportunity to lead this annual process of gathering gifts of wealth as an expression of gratitude. We also love to hear your stories of wisdom and works, what connects you to St. Paul’s, and how you and your family flourish here. Together with the Vestry, Budget Committee, and Staff, we hope to foster a culture of responsible and faithful stewardship of wisdom, work, and wealth among all givers. Continuing, along with hopefully empowering for growth, our ministries, programs, and outreach of St. Paul’s cannot be done without your faithful financial support.
Today, as you think and pray about your financial commitment to St. Paul’s please tap into that nourishing structure of love you know here and the generosity shown to us by God, who calls us to share our gifts with the world. As you fill out your pledge cards, know that every gift will make an impact.
Every gift matters, and each gift will be joyfully accepted, brought to the Altar, and blessed before God and our community. Thank you in advance for your 2024 financial pledge to St. Paul’s and your continued generosity.
