So we, though many, are one body in Christ , and individually members one of another.” – Romans 12:5
October 7, 2019
Dear Christ Church Family Members,
Biblical stewardship is much more expansive than mere fund-raising. It is where faith, work, and economics intersect. It is about our relationship to God and to one another. Stewardship is about responding to God’s grace with a grateful and generous heart. It is about being a faithful disciple of Christ, and what that means as we apply it to our life at Christ Church. It is a spiritual call.
The theme of this year’s Stewardship Campaign is “We are Family”. We, as the family of God at Christ Church, are truly blessed to be in this place, at this time, with each other. We are responsible to be stewards of God’s creation and of all that we have been given by grace. Your support in terms of time, talent, and treasure is necessary to maintain and grow the life and ministries of Christ Church.
Our individual monetary pledges are absolutely necessary to allow the Vestry to budget for the operation and ministries of Christ Church in the coming year. Our collective response enables us to nurture the Christ Church Family and provide opportunities for connection between our church, our school, and the world outside our door. Service to others is paramount in our ministry.
A few examples of how we bridge love and service include:
- Pastoral care
- Live-streaming services
- Christ Church Day School
- Vida Joven orphanage
- The Anne Bridgers Backpack Drive
- Blessings in a Bag,
- St. Luke’s Kitchen,
- Thanksgiving Food Bags
- Camp Create
Our prayer is that you will declare your love for our Christ Church Family by actively participating in this year’s Stewardship Campaign. Challenge yourself to give in a regular and disciplined way. Declare your commitment to our Christ Church Family. We promise you won’t regret it
Please join us for the “We are Family” kickoff with a Taco Tuesday Dinner on October 15 and plan to attend church on In-Gathering Sunday on November 17. Our time together in this time of transition is important.
.Yours in Christ,
Paul Laedlein. Senior Warden
