In the midst of this very challenging time, we would like to thank all those who have continued to financially support the ongoing needs of our ministries within and outside the walls of St. Michael.
Your generosity reminds us of the words of the late Mr. Fred Rogers (whose life’s work served as the inspiration for our 2020 Stewardship Campaign — “Something Worth Giving”). During an October 9, 2002 presentation to a group of Youth & Family Grant givers in Houston, Texas, Fred Rogers spoke about the importance of Stewardship. He said, in part: “I hope you can realize the difference you make. You represent those things without which humankind cannot live ... generous giving and gracious receiving.”
Thank you for making a difference in keeping our Church ministries vibrant ... now and in the days ahead.
In the coming weeks, we will be launching our 2021 Stewardship Campaign. This year’s theme will be “Beacons of Hope”. As a congregation we are preparing to meet the challenges of ministry in 2021 as we weather the storms of COVID-19 and begin to address our anticipated staffing needs.
Watch for more information from our stewardship team as we join together to meet the challenges on the horizon with gratitude and hope.
