Every autumn, the Stewardship Committee of St John's asks their fellow parishioners to prayerfully reflect on their contributions to the life of the parish as a response to God's activity in their lives. In the current format of the annual Stewardship Campaign, members of the St John's family are invited to complete a form (either printed or online) that provides places to indicate interest in a variety of ministries in the parish and to pledge an amount for a financial commitment for the upcoming year. This enables ministry leaders to respond to people's sense of call to a particular ministry and gives the finance team more reliable information for revenue part of the budget. Most importantly, it allows every person who reflects on the various parts of the form to prayerfully discern how they are responding to Christ's call to be good stewards, and ultimately, Giving to Grow.
In 2017, the Stewardship Campaign will run from Sunday, September 17th to Sunday, October 8th (Harvest Thanksgiving). You can read the Rector's cover letter by clicking on the link above. The form below is for the Annual Stewardship Campaign. For your convenience, you can complete and submit it online. If you prefer not to do this, you can complete the form in one of three other ways. Printed copies are available from the parish office. A PDF version can be downloaded from the link above which you can print, complete and return; or fill in the PDF and email it. All printed versions that are received will be dedicated on the altar at Harvest Thanksgiving and a prayer of commitment for those who have pledged their time and money will be offered.
