Invest In Hope: Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you.” Genesis 12:1
The journey of Abraham to a new land is really the beginning of the Jewish-Christian story. Abraham’s willingness to step out in faith and persistence encourages us to do the same as we journey through this season of Lent.
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.
