Stewardship and Giving

Finding grace in a time of need

2021 Stewardship Campaign 

Stewardship. When we steward something, it means we care for it. Watch over it. In our case—that does not just mean caring and watching out for the church building—it means we care and watch out for each other.

In 2020 life for everyone changed. Hundreds of thousands of American citizens died. We masked. We distanced. We searched for toilet paper. And many of us have felt cut off from our normal lives.

What have you missed? What have you gained?  Maybe the thing we can all agree on is that we miss each other.   2020, the year that keeps on giving. But now it is 2021. Time to think about where we are going.

We have found old and new ways to worship, learn, increase fellowship and to care for others in our community.  With your support we are virtually reaching you through daily prayer, daily coffee and check-in Zoom meetings, educational opportunities, and a weekly online worship service.  Our community outreach continues with volunteers working at the Food Pantry and the Loaves and Fishes Soup Kitchen at St. Peter’s.

It has never been more important to give of our time, our talents and our treasure. We hope you will consider making a pledge online or by mail to support what we do behalf of all the people of God (links can be found below). Because even though the building is closed, WE are Christ’s church. And we will always be.

We are sharing four videos on YouTube to highlight our “Finding Grace in a Time of Need” Stewardship Campaign.  The first video (January 24th) thanks all those who have helped St. Thomas’ get through 2020. The second video (January 31st) highlights all that we have been doing this year.  On our third video you will hear from some of our parishioners about what worshiping Jesus in 2020 was REALLY like!  Finally, we will offer you ways to help us continue to bring Jesus’ love to the world through all our ministries this year, in 2021.  Stay tuned for the last two videos.

God’s peace to all of you. We can do this….. together.
