We want to thank all of you for your pledge of support for the ministries here at Epiphany Lutheran Church.Â To date, we have received 54 pledges for the 2019 calendar year, totaling $173,316.Â Because of what you have given, we can do the work and ministry that takes place here. If you have not pledged yet for 2019, you still have an opportunity to do so.Â Please let us know, because it is only as we know what is pledged as support that we can plan for Godâ€™s work in this place.
We emphasize stewardship not just in an annual campaign but throughout the year as a sign of our spiritual maturity and growth.Â Stewardship is about more than our money.Â At the same time, we do not ignore our financial response and our financial responsibility to this congregation.
We want to continue to try to lift up the theme of stewardship throughout this coming year.Â We want to emphasize that stewarding Godâ€™s gifts, stewarding Godâ€™s love, is a part of all we do, since it is about taking care of all that God has given to us.
I want to thank all of who have helped with stewardship this past year.
