Stewardship 2013As we approach the close of the 2014 third quarter, your Year Round Stewardship Committee is looking forward and making plans for our 2015 Commitment Campaign.

We would first like to thank all those who have made a financial commitment to support the ministries here at Grace for 2014. Your support is truly making a difference in people’s lives. God’s abundance continues to transform lives within and outside our parish.

Our message over the previous years revolved around celebrating God’s abundance, not coming from a point of scarcity, and using proportional giving as a sound stewardship philosophy. These will certainly hold true as we move into future years. Your responses to our recent survey indicated that you consider mission and outreach one of the top ministries at Grace. You have demonstrated your support for these by increasing your pledges by 7% and 4% for the past two years (for those making year over year commitments.) Again, we would like to thank you for that. We are seriously saying thank you to God for all bestowed on us.

Over the next few months, you will hear more about our various ministries. The Ministry Fair will provide information about the many opportunities for participation in the Grace community. We are also making plans to hear from folks outside our community who have been impacted by our outreach.

Please begin the serious, prayerful discernment of your level of commitment for 2015. Your Year Round Stewardship Committee thanks you for your generous giving.
