Are you ready for Stewardship Sunday?

Stewardship Sunday 12-2015 v1

Sunday, December 13th, 2015 is Stewardship Sunday!

Stewardship is an opportunity to examine our priorities and values, to express our thankfulness, to give of ourselves, and to grow in grace. For more details please read the Stewardship handbook 2016

If you need a Stewardship Commitment Card click here.

Three Steps to Prepare:

Step 1: Review your 2015 stewardship commitment and consider increasing your 2016 commitment to help offset increasing operating expenses.

Step 2: Fill out your 2016 Stewardship Commitment Card.  Bring it to church on Stewardship Sunday

Step 3: Please join us for Stewardship Sunday Coffee Hour sponsored by your PTO; who is having their annual bake sale! And, Vote in Parish Council Elections. 

Our Parish depends on all of us to step up.  Our expenses have continued to increase the past few years putting increasing pressure on all of us to continue to raise funds. Our overall operating expenses for 2016 are expected to be $534,000 or $1,618 per steward – this should not be confused with the emergency funds (such as insurance claims) being used, as example, to repair our roof.  Historically, we try to offset the expenses per steward by fund raising, which is putting a lot of pressure on our fund raising committees. We recommend a minimum of $800 per our ~330 stewards and would appreciate giving generously within your means. Let’s make sure we start this the year with financial strength and focus on community!
