"...so now we will ask God to bless our intentions and the gifts of time, talent and treasure...represented by these cards."
Fr. Tara offered up our pledges Sunday in a reminder that God is the giver of all good gifts, and asked that our gifts help us to grow in love and and that our church "may be to us and to the people yet to come a place to encounter You, a place to be encouraged, a place of comfort, a place of peace, a place to be made wiser, a home place, and from this home, a place to become."
If you didn't get a chance to present your pledge card at Sunday's liturgy, you can fill out the pledge by clicking here.
