First of all, I’d like to thank all the people who helped make the first every “Fall Festival of Faith and Fun” possible. I had a great time being a part of it, and loved watching all the talented members of the congregation sharing their gifts with us.
Second, my additional thanks to everyone who helped make our first in-person worship gathering safe and smooth. That includes everyone who came in masks, patiently waiting through our check-in process, and kept their distance. Our hope is that we can continue to hold in-person worship in November (not October 25) if it continues to be relatively safe to do so.
Third and finally, my thanks to those of you who have already turned in your pledge card. We are hoping to get all the cards in by All Saints Day, November 1. Please consider that turning in a card allows the Vestry to have the best information to plan for the year to come, and in a year with so many other questions, not having to wonder what kind of financial support we are going to have is a real gift.
Also remember that you can email our financial staff person Vickie Randel directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
or click on the link on our website to set up automated giving.
Some of you have shared with me via your pledge card things that are on your mind or challenges that you are seeking to overcome.
Thank you for sharing with me those thoughts and concerns. It has been a long time since I have seen many of you, and I am glad to reconnect.
Yours in Christ,
