FROM THE DESK OF

The Rev. Ledlie I. Laughlin
Rector , St. Columba's
Episcopal Church
Washington, DC
Dear Ones,
 
You came seeking God, community or a deeper faith. By your presence and prayers, you've created a community of faith for others. Thank you for your trust and faithfulness.
 
Your generosity and commitment is a joy to behold. The financial pledges we've received to date put us within $400,000 of our current level of giving; with $600,000 or more, we'll grow our ministry deep and wide. What a great start; thank you!
 
A deep bow of gratitude to all 400+ households who have pledged thus far, including 45 of you giving for the first time and 185 who increased your pledge over last year.
 
If you've not yet pledged, now is the time. As a sign of
our gratitude to God and commitment to the ministry of St. Columba's, we're looking for 100% participation.
Your pledge is essential.
 
Truly, the Holy Spirit is stirring hearts and minds
among us. Your ministry and witness to the world is vital: children nourished, homeless fed, prayers offered, faith deepened, justice proclaimed and lives transformed by
the grace of God.
 
Join this grateful, generous congregation with your pledge today.
 
With deep gratitude, 
Ledlie
