Is your church getting ready for your fall annual giving program? Join Julie Simonton, officer for congregational development and stewardship at the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia, to gather all of the resources and tools you will need. This year our diocesan offices are excited to provide the second series and set of resources that connect churches more deeply with one another, whether around the corner or on the other side of the Commonwealth.

The 2017 annual giving ministry, “All Hearts Open,” is based on the Collect for Purity, which begins “Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hid …”. Many hear these sentences every Sunday, but miss the call into worship and into relationship with God exactly because they hear them at the beginning of every service. The words are lost to repetition. This annual giving ministry invites people deeply into this rich prayer and into how our hearts are open to God, to ourselves, and to others.

Registration is $25 per church for up to three participants. Scholarships are available. To register, click here.
