Stewardship & Leaves

Oct 20-Nov 10–Annual Stewardship Campaign & Leaves of Gratitude
Stewardship & ThanksOur Annual Stewardship Campaign kicks off on October 20 with the theme, “I am the way”. During the following weeks the Stewardship Committee will present different aspect of stewardship, culminating with the collection of pledge cards on Celebration Sunday, November 10. As we journey on this path, all are invited to add to the leaves of gratitude that we’re hanging in the church foyer throughout the campaign. The leaves were a last minute addition to the Stewardship Campaign inspired by an activity we did at the church La Foret Retreat.
