We are embarking on our annual campaign in which we consider and recommit to our journey of generosity by pledging a percentage of our financial resources to the mission and ministries of Christ through Good Shepherd.
How do you pledge? You will receive a packet of materials sometime in the next few weeks from another parishioner. There will be a pledge card in the packet. Along with your spouse, and in prayer, determine a percentage (anywhere from 1% to 10% or more) of your projected 2018 annual income that you will offer to God through the church. Write that amount on the card and bring it or mail it to church on or before Sunday, November 12th. You can change this amount at any time, by simply giving notice to the treasurer Shannon Brandt, who can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our own journeys of generosity often take twists and turns throughout our lifetimes. Vestry and other ambassadors have shared earliest memories of making money and giving money for various causes. What great stories we have! You have your own as well - and it would be wonderful to hear it.
Over the next few weeks, you will hear from parishioners reflecting on their journeys of generosity. I can’t wait! Our Fiesta Ingathering will be November 12th in which we will collect and bless all pledges. San Pablo Episcopal Church Seaside will cater this Fiesta Celebration after the 10 a.m. service.
In the peace of Christ,
