Why the Legos?

Our 2015 pledge campaign is titled, “Building our Spiritual Home.” We symbolize this campaign with brightly-colored Lego bricks. Why? Three reasons:

  1. The small Lego bricks represent the small tithes and pledges that each church member commits to contribute in 2015. Small Lego bricks come together to make incredible projects. Small pledges also come together to do God’s incredible work in the world.
  2. The small Lego bricks represent the individual pieces of our lives that, when offered to God, can be transformed by his grace into something we never thought possible.
  3. The small Lego bricks represent the abundance, joy and fun of growing more deeply in our lives as Christians.

Want to make your pledge commtiment? Print this Pledge Certificate and bring it to church on Sunday, November 23.

How does Pledging work?

Grace Episcopal Church’s ministries are funded by church members through their financial gifts throughout the year. Without them, we could not carry out our Worship, Monthly Suppers, Children’s Ministries, Take-a-Tote programs and so much more.

Here’s how the pledge system works:

  1. Each fall, church members pray about what they can contribute during the upcoming year.
  2. Then, they write down what they plan to give on a Pledge Certificate and give the certificate to the church.
  3. They receive follow-up letters thanking them for their generosity.
  4. They make regular gifts throughout the year, some weekly, some monthly, some annually.
  5. The church sends every pledger quarterly statements to remind them of their progress.
  6. God transforms lots of small financial gifts into the ministries of His living church!

Take-a-Tote Needs Volunteers

We goofed! We didn’t mean to ignore our 8am worshippers. In order to have 25 Take a Tote bags ready for delivery every Thursday, we need many volunteers to stock the shelves, pack the contents and deliver to the school. If you are willing to spend 20 minutes after the early Sunday service to pack a few bags, this would be a much appreciated start to the weekly process. Call Barb Ashworth, 606-2398, or Janet Cumming, 226-0648, for a hands-on-show-me session.
