Stewardship and Capital Campaign Thanks

Dear Parish Family,

I want to thank all of you for the extraordinary support that you are showing to our parish.  There is a spirit of can-do-ness permeating our parish’s life and in no place is that more evident that in recent results from our Capital Campaign and Stewardship.

Of the money pledged to our building in 2011-2016, less than $160,000 remains to be paid.  Of those remaining pledges, our parish stewards have responded that they intend to fulfill their pledges — an exciting and life-giving fact.  When those funds are completed, we will have collected close to, if not greater than, 100 percent of the pledges to the campaign.  Amazing!

We’re excited that Farmer Tim and his friendly chickens will be joining us with his full farmer’s market at the picnic!  From homemade jellies to fresh produce and grits, there’s something for everyone at his market. Farmer Tim will also be providing flower and vegetable seeds and pots for children to plant and take home.  Come join us to welcome Summer!
