2019 Pledge Campaign
The theme for our 2019 Pledge Campaign is inspired by the words that we hear at the conclusion of every Sunday service. The prayer of thanksgiving following communion reads, “Eternal God, heavenly Father, you have graciously accepted us as living members of your Son our Savior Jesus Christ, and you have fed us with spiritual food in the Sacrament of his Body and Blood. Send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve you with gladness and singleness of heart; through Christ our Lord. Amen.”
We tend to think that our lives and our worship are disconnected. We take a break when we come into worship – and then it’s over and we head back out to our lives again. This prayer reminds us that the two are connected. We take what we have gained in worship NOW INTO THE WORLD.
Additionally, we are to be engaged NOW INTO THE WORLD by our call to serve in Jesus’ name. We make an impact within our parish, our local community, our Diocese and, around the globe. Each of us offers our time, talents, and treasure to that end.
To make that work possible, our pledge campaign target for this year is a 4% increase over the amount pledged for 2018. Starting in October, you will see a graphic representation of our progress towards this goal.
