They feast on the abundance of your house,
and you give them drink from the river of your delights. Psalm 36:8
What an amazing year it has been at St. Bartholomew’s! The brochure offers a brief snapshot of some of the ways we have grown and shared together this year. God’s grace has flowed in abundance in 2023!
As a parish we have so many reasons to express our gratitude. The arrival of Father Josh and the continued ministry of the Reverend Serena, the staff, vestry and hundreds of volunteers have led us in teaching, worship, service, and fellowship as we have continued to grow together in community.
At St. Bs, we are given the opportunity to each consider sharing a portion of our resources through our Season of Gratitude and Generosity. As parishioners we are asked to make our promise in response to God’s abundant outpouring to us.
Remember, in God’s economy our heart matters most. On behalf of the Stewardship Team, it is our hope that regardless of the portion of our resources that we share, each commitment and gift grows together to make God’s work in our parish, the community and the world around us.
If you are looking for guidance about giving, I've found this resource very helpful: https://tifwe.org/four-principles-of-biblical-stewardship/. Thank you for your prayerful consideration of your promise this year as we look forward to God’s plans for St. Bs in 2024.
