The Power of a GRATEFUL Heart: The 2020 Pledge Campaign

               "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."  Matthew 6:21


October25, 2019


Dear Friends of the Parish, 


We are so grateful for our church – our relationship with God grows here, through worship and fellowship. We are grateful for the opportunities All Saints provides us, for personal growth, for community in our family of God, and, for real, positive change as we reach out into our beloved community and beyond.


Sunday, November 17 is Grateful Sunday. We will have an opportunity to express our gratitude – for God’s blessings and for our beloved All Saints – as we walk down the aisle, dedicate ourselves to God, and place our pledge cards on the altar. For many, that simple act is a transcendent and powerful experience – the power of a grateful heart!

 

Even as we work to reduce our deficit, our collective spirit soars in hope and love as we seek to serve, invite, welcome and embrace, and to put our faith into action, loving God by serving others. We can accomplish so much, because of your support and generosity. 


Our most notable achievements this year have been the Gift and Thrift Shoppe, which will have its grand opening November 9th, and the St. Francis Meditation and Pet Memorial Garden, which Bishop Gayle Harris dedicated on October 6th. We are so grateful to all the people who made these ministries a reality. 


We’ve grown our parish, and we have grown in understanding and action around the work of living God’s commandment to love our neighbors as ourselves. Please join your fellow parishioners with your pledge. 


Below is our online pledge card. Please give prayerful thought to your pledge this year and bring a copy of your pledge card to Grateful Sunday, November 17, 2019. Even $2 more a week makes a huge difference. 


Join us too, for a free catered luncheon! Enclosed is a reservation card for our luncheon immediately following our service on November 17. Please mail or drop it off at the parish office by November 11.  


Jesus calls us to give of ourselves, trusting in God’s care.  What a challenge!  Pledge on Sunday, November 17, and let our hearts be forever grateful!   


Faithfully,

 

Vicki Lord and Chris Walker

Why Pledging Matters

 Even as we work to wrestle down our deficit, our collective spirit soars in hope and love as we seek to serve, invite, welcome and embrace, and to put our faith in action, loving God by serving others. We can accomplish all this because of your support and generosity.
