Wealth gained hastily will dwindle, but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.
                                                -- Proverbs 13:11
Over the next several Tuesdays, you will receive emails from our Stewardship Committee as part of this year’s first-ever multi-media annual campaign, “The Call to Give.”  In keeping with our broader fall theme of “The Call to Return,” we are asking: What does it mean to return to God?  And how can returning to our deepest divine values shape our generosity and giving?  This year, we have had to learn many new things, but much remains the same.  For now, let us re-center ourselves in this moment that God has given us and celebrate the many ministries of this church. May we first and foremost thank each and every one of you for your time, talent and financial support that give life to our faith community. We are so very blessed. 

Sometimes “little” may feel very small in our world, but as scripture reminds us, “wealth gained hastily will dwindle.”  The work is hard
and the days are long, but little by little we are dismantling racism and oppression within us and around us.  Little by little, we reach more folx who need a warm meal, a place to rest their heads or a place to worship where they can just be themselves.  Little by little, we gather to hold grieving hearts. Little by little, we witness the miracle of God’s love, mercy and grace. Together, let us remember God’s promise--whoever gathers little by little will increase divine possibilities….

Little by little we are doing things differently. Please watch our first stewardship video to learn more about how stewardship will be pieced together for 2021.
