The smiling group you see here is this year’s Congregational Giving Task Force. We are Borgie Yunis, Julia Cochran, Ruth Sedlock, Jeff Tustin, and Andy Carlisle. Josh Torgerson is also part of the group, but he couldn’t make it for the photo.
Keith Jenkins Man gathered the first CG task force in 2011. The actions of that group, and every one after it, have been guided by these values: that generosity is a core value of our faith, and that it is important that we support and encourage each other in our journeys toward becoming more generous. Though you might be meeting us now for the first time, this year’s task force has been meeting and studying since spring, dreaming together about year-round ways to both celebrate and challenge generosity.
The theme of this year’s Congregational Giving Appeal will be “Delight in Giving,” as in “Each one should give however their heart leads them. God loves it when a giver delights in the giving.” 2 Corinthians 9:7 Isn’t that great advice?! We look forward to walking with you this fall toward deeper delight “in the giving.”
Save the date: November 6, 2016 – Dedication of our pledges in worship, followed by Celebration Brunch!
