A Letter from George MacDonald, Vestry Liaison for Stewardship & Finance


I am your Episcopal Church of the Annunciation (ECA) Vestry Liaison for Stewardship and Finance.  I have been a member of ECA for over twenty years and am pleased to announce the start of our Annual Stewardship Campaign. This year’s theme is “Rooted in Abundance” and it is a reminder that we are inspired to give because so much has been given to us.  Rooted in Abundance describes the graceful nature of the ECA community and how we share our gifts with each other and transform that goodness into work, service and joy in a world so in need of us.

Our giving tradition at ECA has always been focused on how we share all our gifts, not just our financial pledge. In addition to your financial support, ECA needs your creativity and commitment to continue to maintain and grow the many ministries we currently operate.  With our beautiful but aging property and the expansion of our service ministries in a time where we are seeing increased demand for our help, this is more important than ever. I have seen the ways in which ECA rises to our challenges and fully expect that we will continue to serve our community and witness to God’s generosity. 

I thank you for your support this year, financially and for sharing your gifts with us; your time, talent, and treasure.  Every gift matters this year, and each gift will be accepted, brought to the altar, and blessed before God and our community. Whatever your ministries are, we couldn’t be who we are without you.  God has blessed each of us with many gifts, I hope we can continue to share those gifts and help ECA to support our mission of being the hands and feet of Christ in a time of increasing need for our help.

This year, as you pray about your commitment to our church, please consider how God has blessed you and your family and given us the gifts we can share with our community. I invite you to let us know what gifts you would like to share with us for next year’s ministry. When you are rooted in abundance, you realize that you can give generously.  Thank you for your generosity and your prayerful consideration of your pledge to ECA.

In Gratitude,

George MacDonald, 

Vestry Liaison for Stewardship and Finance

A Stewardship Letter from Father Paul…

They shall be like a tree planted by water, sending out its roots by the stream. It shall not fear when heat comes, and its leaves shall stay green; in the year of drought it is not anxious, and it does not cease to bear fruit.– Jeremiah 17:8

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ! I am entering into my 14thyear here at ECA and we have accomplished so much as a faith community and member of the Diocese of Atlanta. During these years, I have been privileged to witness so much generosity of care and love as you contribute your ideas, your funds, your time and your talent to our parish and the community. We have been able to accomplish some amazing things because of your willingness to support ECA’s mission of bearing witness to God’s love in everything we do.  

As George MacDonald stated in a previous letter, our pledge campaign this year — “Rooted in Abundance”— is a reminder that we are inspired to give because so much has been given to us.  When I think of “Rooted in Abundance”,I think of the purpose of roots: not only to serve as anchor but also to be life producing. Our faith in God in Christ anchors us in our beliefs that, in turn, produce life giving ministry within our parish and out in the world. As your Rector, I often experience the blessing of seeing the big picture of our congregation, the ministry we bring to our neighbors, the impact we have on our community, and the ways that, week after week, we come together to celebrate our faith and praise God. I am proud of the ministry and mission we accomplish and your abundant generosity makes everything we do possible.  

I know there are many influences on your finances.  It is never easy to ask for a part of your treasure, but it is necessary to continue the life-giving work we do. You are receiving an invitation to name and pledge the gifts you will make in the coming year to help ECA and our neighbors. I ask that you pray with us as we launch our annual gathering of gifts and gratitude, and consider how you will contribute your gift of treasure to strengthen our rootedness in God and our life producing ministry. 

In Abundant Gratitude,

Fr. Paul+
