Loving Beyond: Stewardship 2021 and beyond

loving-beyond

In this season, we have invited one another to love beyond. Beyond what we can see. Beyond what we can imagine. Over the past several weeks we have held the tensions of living in Holy Chaos and shared about ways we are being the church and loving beyond this moment. Church happens in our homes. Church happens through texts. Church happens as we build connection via zoom and Facebook. Church happens as we find ways to love beyond.

During this season of claiming the ways we see love, live love, and become love, we are celebrating the resources entrusted to our care. We have heard the call to love our neighbor, to care for creation, to care for Spirit dwelling deep within us and to care for our community-in new ways. We celebrate this call and the ways we invest in this community. Together, we have provided food and a safe space for our unsheltered neighbors and friends. We have provided additional space for AA groups to continue meeting during critical times, we expanded space for DGMS so they could offer programming for kids in the SPS school system, and much more.

A paper estimate of giving is on it’s way! Please watch for it to hit your snail mail box in the next few days. It has a tear off section to mail back as well as a self addressed and stamped envelope! If you prefer, there is also an online form for you can fill out HERE!

We look forward to reflecting on the ways we have been church and dream about what comes next! On November 22nd, we will have the opportunity to offer our support for this community as we prepare for next year.
