2018 Stewardship Campaign Updates
October 17 | During our stewardship campaign this year, a number of parishioners will be speaking about their own stewardship and what it means to them and their families. This past Sunday, Martin Davis asked us to think about the moment when we first gave a gift, and the joy that followed that giving. He recalled an experience from childhood when his parents gave him and his brothers money to put in the collection plate at church. "Though we didn't earn (the money), we received the joy of giving," and thus began the process of giving.
Martin said the decision to pledge is a tangible expression of our gratitude and love to God. When we give to St. George's, we are helping to fulfill the first two commandments by sharing our love for God, while also sharing our love of our neighbors. Giving is "not from obligation, but from love."
We are grateful to those of you who already have pledged. More than 100 individuals and families have increased their pledges ... thank you.
October 10 | “We know that time, talents, and treasures are the offerings to God we can give, borne out of our sense of gratitude for the many blessings we have.”
Please think about your giving this year as a response to the blessings in your own life. Watch the video to hear more from Stewardship Chair Katie Agnew about this year’s stewardship campaign.
October 3 | The annual Stewardship campaign has begun! More than 300 people gathered Sunday, October 1 at St. George's Harvest Dinner to officially kick off the campaign. Friends new and old enjoyed a great meal, excellent fellowship, and interesting table decorations and themes. Stewardship Chair Katie Agnew reported that the clergy and vestry had all made their commitments for 2018, and she challenged attendees to 100 percent participation.
We thank those of you who already have pledged! If you haven't pledged yet, make your commitment today to help us reach our 2018 goal of 750 pledging families.
