It is easy for us to become focused on keeping the lights on, meeting the budget, funding our ministry, to forget that giving is, first and foremost, a spiritual discipline. In a monetized society, the ministry of the church does require money. For Redeemer to be the sanctuary that we are called to be, lights do need to be changed, the heat does need to be on, but it must be more than that. Jesus tells us, “God knows that you need these things. But strive first for the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Matt.6:32b-33).
A few weeks ago you many of you received a letter in the mail, I hope, along with a pledge card. Pledge cards allow the leadership at Church of the Redeemer to make important decisions about the direction and budget of the church in the coming year; about what we hope to do, and what we might not be able to. If you have not returned your pledge card yet, or didn’t receive one, I hope that you will consider completing this online pledge card. The information is sent directed to the treasurer directly and securely, and allows us to continue with the discernment for the coming year.
Fr. Jed Fox
Thank you for making a pledge to Church of the Redeemer.
Church of the Redeemer
Church of the Redeemer is at 6210 181st Street in Kenmore, Washington. We are a short distance north of Bothell Way, near the Burke-Gilman Trail. The entrance looks like a gravel driveway. The campus is larger on the inside than it is on the outside.
The Episcopal Church welcomes you.Please share this post with others
