Bishop’s Invitation to Grow 10 in 2017
Dear Friends and Coworkers in Christ,
An Invitation to Grow in Generosity and Mission
As your congregation begins planning for ministry in 2017, I would like to invite your congregation into prayerful conversation about growing your generosity and gift for Mission Support (benevolence). This year, as we consider giving in generosity as our response to God’s free gift of grace in Christ, please prayerfully consider growing gifts for mission support in 2017 by 10 percent over your 2016 Mission Support Statement of Int ent. This would mean growing your gift of Mission Support in 2017 by $1,000.00 for a total gift for Mission Support of $11,000.00 in 2017.
A Thank You!
Thank you for prayerfully considering this invitation to grow your generosity and gift for Mission Support in 2017. Thanks be to God for your congregation‘s generosity in sharing gifts for ministry and all that you do in proclaiming God‘s rich and abundant grace in Christ Jesus.
Serving Christ Together,
Bishop Jeffrey Clements
