From THE RECTOR
I need not remind you of the disruptions, losses, and anxieties that this year has brought to our communities, for we are all still living with the impacts. I can say, however, that although the coronavirus pandemic has tested our resolve, it has not tested our faith. We are stronger, more resilient, and connected in ways that we have never been as a Church. Thank you. Thanks to each one of you doing your part in your homes, workplaces, schools, neighborhoods, families, and here in our church.
Our stewardship and our mission this year have been focused on loving service in new ways. As we experienced months of not being able to gather in person, the usual focus on weekly liturgy has been spread throughout the week as we found ways to worship and gather virtually, taking more time to pray for each other’s needs and serve our communities. You used this time to discover, hone, and put to use the spiritual gifts you have received from our God and to serve others in the name of Christ.
I have witnessed the countless ways that you have used your resources for the mission of the Church and to help each other. As we look to the year to come, we are more committed than ever to the ministry and love we share with our community and our neighbors. Our generosity is inspired by our faith and life-long Christian learning, and we are led into relationship with God and each other as we share our gifts. This is what is meant by “Faith-Filled Generosity.”
Our ministry is funded through the gifts of its members — your generous offerings given in grace and love. You are encouraged to make your 2021 pledge today.
Thank you for your support, faithfulness, and generosity!
