Gethsemane’s Stewardship In-gathering will be on Sunday, November 11, 2012. Please bring your commitment card to church and place it in the offering plate at the 8:30 and 10:30am services. Pledge cards will be available beginning on October 28th. In order to faithfully fulfill our financial obligations we are asking you to prayerfully consider increasing your commitment by 15% over your 2012 pledge.
Please join us for BRUNCH, hosted by the Odneys, during the 9:30am Coffee Hour.
A Message from the Dean
While we are called to be grateful caretakers of all that God has given us as a way of life, once a year we formalize our commitment to our congregation in the form of pledges of financial support. We have much to celebrate: we have worked our way out of a deep budget deficit to a balanced budget in a little over a year; the Choir and Spirit-Song are leading us together in joy-filled worship; new people are joining our congregation; Sunday School and Wednesday Faith Formation for all ages are in full swing; the search for a new dean has begun, to name but a few. When called upon, I ask you to be generous with your pledge of financial support for Gethsemane Cathedral so that we might be all that God is calling us to be and to do in the church and in the world.
I am, Yours in Christ,
A Message from the Chapter
As Christians living in the world and worshipping in this community of faith, we believe that God has blessed us with many gifts, especially Jesus Christ. With these blessings God calls us to give. We believe giving is both our responsibility and essential to our spiritual health. As individuals and Chapter members we make ourselves available to God to work through us as we serve our church, our community and all those in need. We affirm that commitment by sharing our financial resources, giving proportionately with the tithe (10%) as our goal. We invite you to join us in generously providing the financial support needed to continue the spiritual legacy of Gethsemane Episcopal Cathedral and to provide for our future needs.
