2021 Stewardship Campaign
Doing What Love Requires...Building a Future
“What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” — Micah 6:8
2020 has reminded us of the strength and closeness of our community. Our faith community is vibrant! Christ Church rose to the challenge of finding new ways to be together while physically distant. We welcomed our new clergy, the Rev. Carol Cole Flanagan and the Rev. Meg Ingalls.
The church doors may be closed but our hearts are open. Ministry meetings continue via Zoom. Outdoor Sunday worship services, Wednesday evening online services, and Christ Episcopal Pause messages keep us spiritually engaged and inspired. Pastoral care, Outreach and St. Francis Flock continue to reach out. Food and cleaning supplies have been collected and distributed. English conversation instructional classes are online.
In July a new adult formation class began with parishioners remotely discussing readings and video materials from the Episcopal Church Sacred Ground series on Race and Faith. Our new flooring and an elevator were completed as part of the capital campaign. Minds, bodies and—most importantly—spirits continue to be nourished. This parish is doing what love requires and building a future.
This year we are asking for every member to take part in our stewardship campaign by making a 2021 pledge in grace and love.
— In the spirit of love and generosity,
