This is our jubilee year!
We have been blessed to be joined with God to seek and serve Christ in all people for the past 50 years. The stewardship campaign this year is built around the theme of “50 years...from caterpillar to butterfly”. The logo for our 50th anniversary has four symbols that speak to how we are joined with God and what he has given us to do and wants us to continue today and into the future as His people.
Let’s look at the logo to the right. At the center is the cross of Christ. Encircling the cross we see how God nourishes us with the sacrament; how God enlightens us through his word; how God gives us new life as we continue to grow in relationship to him and others and then how God send us out to share love with our hearts and hands. This is our legacy of blessing at Prince of Peace. All that God gives us and in turn year after year we break through the boundaries to give to others our gifts of time, talent and financial resources.
Our campaign will be held over four weeks beginning on January 16th. Each week Pastor will take one of the symbols in the logo and share a sermon that will help us to see and feel how Jesus chooses to be with us in all we do, in all we say, in all we are and in all we give. Below is a devotion for each week written by Pastor Joe for reflection and a special poem written by Traci Rumsey for inspiration and contemplation.
We are thankful for your commitment through the years to actively seek and serve Christ through the ministry of Prince of Peace. You will be asked at the end of the campaign to increase your financial support by a specific amount and how to calculate that. Please pray during the campaign for discernment on how God wants you to respond to what he has given you and how you will give to keep His mission going for another 50 years.
In faithful service,
The Stewardship Committee
