Stewardship Gratitude Day

Newsletter file: 

Dear All Souls Family,

Once again, the cooler temperatures of autumn usher in a season of abundance of opportunity for All Souls members.  Following on the heels of a very successful Ministry Fair in September, Bishop Susan Goff joined us in October to remind us how profoundly relevant our ministries are to who we are as a faith community. 

We draw inspiration from the Bishop’s words this season as we enjoy our annual Shrine Mont weekend, support the Peter Paul Development Center and assist in Home Winterization for those in need.   Our ministries empower, uplift and befriend not only our congregation but many beyond our church doors.

We are grateful for all the ways in which you care for All Souls.  Your faithful presence, witness and generosity help sustain our ministry and our lives together.  Your efforts restore hope, offer an ear to listen and provide food for body and soul.  Thank you.

Now it is time for us to ask for your financial assistance, as well.  We ask that between now and Celebration Sunday (November 10th), you please consider the level at which you might be able to support All Souls through your pledge.  

Your 2020 Pledge Card is enclosed, as well as the Vestry Pledge Statement.  The Vestry and other ministry leaders have already made their pledges for 2020, as acts of encouragement and example for others. 

We realize that some may be unable to pledge at this time but hope you will contribute what you can through your time, efforts and care.  Please remember, also, that pledges in any amount are welcomed throughout the entire year and allow us to carry out the programs we’ve developed for the benefit of so many.

As we consider all we share together and all the people touched by our ministries, we thank you, dear congregation, for your love, prayers and commitment.

God’s peace to you.
