Stewardship & Gratitude
This year The Diocese of Virginia is excited to provide the third series of resources that connect churches more deeply with one another, whether around the corner or across the Commonwealth.
Our 2018 annual giving ministry, “Now into the World,” is based on the post communion prayer on pg. 365 in the Book of Common Prayer. Thanks to the encouragement from churches across The Episcopal Church, we continue offering annual giving programs based on words we hear most every Sunday, but are often lost to repetition. These resources invite people deeply into this rich prayer and into the worlds of outreach, mission, liturgy, scripture, prayer and so, so many more to which God calls us.
The Episcopal Network for Stewardship (TENS) also offers a fall annual giving program. Because the Diocese of Virginia is a TENS member, all churches in the Diocese have free access. Please contact Julie Simonton at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-DIOCESE, x. 1035 for the login and password to TENS member resources.
Connected in the Kingdom: There are many members, yet one body. I Corinthians 12:20
“Urgently relevant” – that’s how Bishop Shannon Johnston describes the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia. Over 80,000 strong, we are a “breathing reality for Jesus in this world.”
See for yourself!
In our new video, we’ve captured the transformational work we are doing together, as we live into our stewardship theme of “Connected in the Kingdom.” We invite you to play the video for your vestries, congregations and neighbors. Help us make new “connections” as we spread the word about mission and ministry.
This video was created to stream easily in locations with Wi-Fi. We are also glad to mail a DVD to your congregation or home. Please complete a DVD request below, or call 800-DIOCESE for a copy.
