As We Receive, So Shall We Give
As we enter December, the Vestry is in the process of creating a budget for 2013 for our parish ministries, programs, and outreach. As of this writing, slightly over half of the households in the parish have made a commitment to support our common life. If you have not done so yet, please send in or bring by a pledge form soon so that the Vestry can continue to envision and work toward our goals and hopes for 2013.
Our particular plans for 2013 are to continue to enhance our ministry in all areas, but especially among younger families. We hope to be able to make Pastor Heath full time; to support the wonderful initial efforts of Mr. Bill Gordon and the youth and children's choirs; and to strengthen and expand, under the guidance of Charlotte Long, our ministry with and among our teenagers. Such growth requires financial support, and represents an investment now in the spiritual future of Holy Comforter.
Thank you, in advance, for your thoughtful consideration and prayerful generosity.
