Each of us has a story about why we love and care for St. John’s. Are you willing to share your story with others?
At its Annual Retreat, the Vestry discussed the importance of moving away from the “fear” and trepidation that can sometimes accompany the annual Stewardship Campaign, and move into a place of “gratitude” for each of ours gifts.
Do you have a story of gratitude for St. John’s and are you willing to share how that gratitude informs your reasons to give back our faith community? What is it that you value about St. John’s that causes you to want to attend service on Sunday, volunteer for a project, or make your stewardship pledge? When are the times you feel the love of Christ most present in our community? Who is that person that provides hope and inspiration in times of need or sadness? The Stewardship Committee would like to collect your stories, and with your permission, share them with others during the fall campaign.
Your story can be as short as a sentence or two, or as much as a few paragraphs. Please submit your “stories of gratitude” to Sarah at email@example.com. If you would prefer to speak with someone please call Tony Grundhauser at 651-925-6501. Thank you for sharing your story with us.
