Thank you to all who share their gifts with the St. Matthew’s community, whether you pledge or not. It’s important to remember that everyone has something to offer, regardless of their age, circumstances or stage of life.
It’s with profound gratitude that I am happy to report that as of December 6, 78 families have made pledges of their Time, Talent and Treasure for 2024 and that the “Treasure” part is just under $300,000.
If you have not yet submitted a pledge, it’s not too late to do so! Please prayerfully consider whether God is calling you to serve in some capacity (or perhaps a new role) here at St. Matt’s. If you have questions, please feel free to ask Fr. Tim, a vestry member or any committee chair. We will be happy to help you engage more fully!
As 2023 comes to a close, most of this year’s pledges are nearly or completely fulfilled, and giving has greatly exceeded the pledged amounts. If you are not able to fulfill your 2023 pledge, please do not let that stop you from making a pledge for 2024. It’s a new year and GRACE abounds.
Also – the Stewardship committee needs some new members with new ideas. Please prayerfully consider whether the Spirit is nudging you to venture out of your comfort zone and serve with us. I’m pretty sure Stewardship is out of everyone’s comfort zone, but it’s not as scary as most people think.
As we await the coming of Christ this Advent season, may we all be humbled and grateful for the countless blessings He has bestowed upon us. God is good!!!
May the peace of the Lord be always with you.
