2013 Stewardship Campaign

Share This Post

For our stewardship theme this year, we have chosen the words of Jesus telling the disciples to bear “fruit that will last.” Here is the link for the 2013 Stewardship Campaign Booklet with a pledge card enclosed for you to complete and return.

We will have an all-parish celebration with a Harvest Dinner in the Parish Hall later this month. Our speaker will be The Rev. Jim Burns, retired Rector of The Church of the Heavenly Rest here in New York. Fr. Burns will share his insights on stewardship and his experience of the interim process. Please join us to celebrate a fruitful harvest!

Also, be an Angel! Check the Planned Giving box at the bottom of your pledge card. Ascension needs that support, as well – the gift that keeps on giving.

Sincerely,

Your Stewardship Committee

This Sunday, following the 11 am service, Ascension will hold its annual meeting. All are welcome to attend, whether or not you’re a pledging member of the parish. For this special Sunday, we will have three very significant pieces. Starting at 10:45 am, the Prelude will be perhaps the greatest masterpiece of César Franck, his Choral in E Major. The Offertory Anthem will be the highly dramatic and inspiring “In the Year that King Uzziah Died” by David McK. Williams. And the Postlude will be Bach’s formidable “We all Believe in One God.”
