2021 Stewardship Campaign
What a challenging year we have had! Yet here we are in 2021 continuing to be a “church with heart in the heart of the city”. You have supported your congregation so that her ministries are strong. You have proven to be resourceful and adaptable and have shown that those who share in the dreams and visions of God will be blessed. Surely, we have been blessed.
When we say “yes” to following Jesus Christ and enter the church through the vows of baptism, we are saying that we are committed to Christ, to the community of Christ and to the mission of God. Our personal stewardship plan is how we live out that commitment. As each one of us considers the call of Christ upon our lives, we are invited to consider how God has gifted us and how God might invite us to share those gifts with others. Please reflect on the selected passages and consider how you will live out your commitment to Christ at Washington Street this year. Your pastors are always ready to assist you in discovering your passion for service, so do not hesitate to call on them for assistance.
I am committed to living in the Way of Jesus (Philippians 2:1-11)
