Entrusted Gifts Corner:

How can we become a biblical giver so that our hearts might be closer to Jesus?

Starting this month you will find an annual ‘pledge’ card for 2020 in the back of the pews.  Our vestry and finance committee use these cards to plan/supervise the cost of running this parish and itsʻ outreach and service to the community for the next year.  Please do not let these cards intimidate you or weigh on your mind.  Only after prayer and discernment of your giving of gifts of time, talent and tithes should you fill out these cards.  They can be placed in the offering plate or dropped off in the office up thru November 17, 2019.  
Hereʻs what the people are saying about Bible Study :

In last week's Bible Study we covered Matthew's account of the resurrection and the subsequent events. Among other questions we mulled over doubt. One conclusion was that if you think deeply about the scriptures and ask questions, doubt may happen. You could almost say that doubt is the prize of thinking.
This Wednesday from 4-5 we will be going over Paul's letter to Philemon. -Marianne Hodapp

Current Bible Study participants would like to extend a warm welcome to new people. 
Strategic Vision Update Corner

The team has been working in the last few weeks to identify common key words from all 212 comments given across four questions. Then, the team worked diligently to associate key words with the 800+ comments. You will find this work in our latest spreadsheets which will be uploaded to the website for everyone to view.

October Green Tip
Greta Thunberg is a 16-year old Swedish environmental activist. She is a young leader who is not afraid to stand up for our future. View the documentary video  Make the World Greta Again and be inspired by her and other young adults. Her message goes beyond climate change. Being in the midst of our Visioning process and our Stewardship campaign~Entrusted Gifts, it is so relevant to see the power of UNITY ~ being and working together toward a common cause. Be motivated; be creative; be excited using your passion and gifts and make a difference. Be a part of the transformation that has already begun at Holy Apostles!
