A Note from our Stewardship Chair and
Senior Warden, Bari Pitts
Stewardship is a churchy word, not used often in everyday language. In the church, stewardship has come to be synonymous with fundraising and pledge campaigns. In reality, stewardship means “taking care of” or “managing.” What we are called to take care of, to manage, is the ministry and mission God has given us as a community and as individuals. That certainly encompasses more than fundraising and pledge campaigns! James 1:22 says, “But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” This means giving our time, our talent, and our monies. Like it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a community of Saints to be doers of the Word.
As you decide to make a pledge to All Saints this year, think of what your GIG is? Why is this important to you? What part of what you are grateful for leads you back to God and All Saints? For many months, we have been worshiping in different ways. God gave us a lovely courtyard to gather outdoors; He called others to step up and provide kits for our children for Sunday School and VBS. God provided the skill and creative minds to allow us to enjoy our Christmas pageant live-streamed. Monies were been received to redo our flooring in the Sanctuary; we replaced the suppression hood in the kitchen, lighting in the preschool area and so much more. We are DOING! Let’s continue with our new GIG at All Saints and continue to be doers of the Word –Gratitude in Giving. God bless you.
