2016 Stewardship Campaign
This year, we're doing something new for the stewardship campaign. Starting Sunday, September 4, 2016, we are launching "Stewardship Season" with a thematic sermon and the distribution of a stewardship package to every household. Please pick yours up from the welcome table in the lobby.
In the package, you will find a cover letter from the stewardship committee and a commitment brochure. In years past, the commitment card has only asked what financial commitment parishioners plan to make for the upcoming year. This year, the brochure will still ask for prayerful commitment to supporting the work of the parish with your money, but it also takes into account that money is not the only way we can support ministry at St. John's. There are a variety of ministry opportunities in the brochure and you can check off any that you might be interested in and someone will contact you to discuss it.
When you complete your brochure, it can be returned at any time before Thanksgiving. Callers will begin checking in with parishioners in the week of 19 September to make sure you received your package and to answer any questions. On Thanksgiving Sunday, all brochures will be placed in a basket on the alter as a way to consecrate our commitment of time, talent, and treasure to the work to which God calls us.
