“Go and Do Likewise”
Bring Pledges to Church on November 13 to be dedicated, and stay for a free Celebration Dinner in the Fellowship Hall! Pledge cards will be mailed out at the end of October. They will also be available in the Church Narthex.
This year’s theme is based on Jesus’ command to “go and do likewise” from the story of the good Samaritan. In this story a young lawyer asks, “What must I DO to inherit eternal life?” Jesus responds, “What do you think?” And he knows and answers, “Love God and Love my Neighbor.” But then he goes on and asks “who exactly is my neighbor?” Jesus then tells the story that shows us that the unlikely one who helped when others pass by is the one who was the neighbor to one laying on the roadside. Our Stewardship to Peace Church is one way we too “go and do likewise”. This year we ask questions too, “What is Peace Church worth to me? What do I value most at Peace Church? How does my giving contribute to the help that Peace gives to the people of Peace and the wider community?” (Click here to view the Narrative Budget, which is the story of how the money you donate to Peace Church is used.)
We will be hearing from members of Peace Church as they try to answer some of these questions. You will be receiving your materials in the mail toward the end of October. We will dedicate our financial pledges on Sunday, November 13th with a celebration dinner to follow. Be a part of one way that we “Go and Do Likewise”.
