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.
George MacDonald, Vestry Liaison for Stewardship and Finance
