Stewardship Appeal – 2019

EMPOWER GOOD SHEPHERD:  The People and the Place  

Your generosity in 2018 has allowed us to connect the generations to God and to one another, equip people for service in God’s world, and embark on a multi-year project to make our building even more inviting. It’s exciting to see what happens when the people of God step forward in faith.

God calls us to further this work in 2019.

We will empower the people and the place of Good Shepherd by

— deepening the impact of worship for all ages. Our children, youth and family ministries will focus on helping our youth to appreciate, participate and lead in worship. Our pastors and communion visitors will keep our elders connected to worship. When our Music Director is away for the spring we will ensure that the vibrant music ministry continues by employing a variety of strong musicians.

 

— helping people live out their faith through social action. We will support initiatives like AMMPARO, Kid’s Lunch Club and Path to Citizenship with both our funds and our service.  

 

 

 

— living out our mission as a congregation that stewards God’s creation through installing an energy efficient heating and cooling system. As we enter a new phase in our multi-year plan to care for our building, the time has come to upgrade our HVAC (heating,  venting and air conditioning and education wing.  After carefully considering many options, taking into account good financial and ecological stewardship, the Facilities Improvement Committee proposes a system that uses heat pump and geothermal technology.  

To carry out this important ministry, our goal is to increase giving by $14,000 over 2018 in new offerings throughout 2019.

We invite you to consider how you can help to empower this ministry through your intended giving in 2019. Please review the bulletin inserts and brochure to consider your gift.

Stewardship Sunday is Nov. 18. We will place our Statements of Intent in front of the altar that day.  Pledges can also be made using the Online Statement of Intent – 2019.
