Invest In Hope: “Worship the Lord your God, and serve only him." Matthew 4:10
While being tempted by the devil, Jesus was encouraged to forget his purpose, forget his task, forget his God. But he didn’t. Instead he rededicated himself to God and to God’s service. We too are called to rededicate ourselves to God and to God’s service.
Invest in Hope Matching Capital Campaign: We have a family in our parish that is willing to move their bequest forward from their deaths into 2020, where it will be sorely needed. But they would also like to have other parishioners participate. So they invite and challenge us to give to the campaign, and they will match our donations dollar for dollar, up to $50,000 on their part. Write "Match" in the memo line of your check to identify your contribution or if giving cash, place in a giving envelope found in the pews and write your name and “match” on the front.
Daughters of the King Shoe Drive: Members of the DOK are asking for gently worn or new women’s shoes (please no sandals, flip flops or heels) for women leaving prison as some have no shoes when they are released.
