Giving to ST. JOHN’S LAFAYETTE
The 2019 Annual Giving Campaign
The theme for this year’s annual campaign is “Transforming Generosity”, which carries two powerful meanings.
On the one hand, it reminds us that our generosity can help transform our communities and the world. The generosity of our time, talent, and treasure makes possible the work of St. John’s Church—our worship, our programs, our outreach ministries, and our formation. What we find, however, is that our generosity transforms us as well through the power of God working in us. By giving ourselves in love and service—by sharing God’s love and our lives—we become different people, transformed people. Our generosity turns us into people who welcome newcomers into our community, care for those suffering from homelessness or food insecurity or addiction, forgive those who have offended us and accept forgiveness from those we have offended.
We say this each year, but our annual campaign is about more than our parish budget. It is about the transforming power of our generosity—the power to transform communities and lives. The Stewardship Committee and the rest of the St. John’s leadership invite you to prayerfully consider all the ways your generosity might make a difference in your life and the lives of others. We invite you to give to the ministries of St. John’s as a part of that transforming generosity.
More information about this year’s annual campaign will be coming soon. In the meantime, please join in Sunday worship where you will hear how your generosity and the ministry of St. John’s can change lives. Please keep an eye out for pledge cards, which will be mailed out the week of October 21st. We ask that they be returned by November 4th. If you have any questions, please contact our Rector, Bradley Pace, at 765.742.4079 or by EMAIL.
I hope you will join us in giving generously and watching our generosity transform our church, our community and our lives.
