Group Meetings on Virginia Plan for Covenantal Giving

Four Locations: The Falls Church, Falls Church; St, James, Warrenton; Christ Church, Glen Allen, and Grace Church, Kilmarnock; see details below

The Executive Board of the Diocese will host four group meetings around the Diocese for clergy and vestry to discus the Virginia Plan for Covenantal Giving. Read the Board's full letter for full details. 

All churches are encouraged to participate in these meetings, even if they currently meet or exceed the pledge guidelines of Resolution R-1. In preparation, every church in the Diocese is asked to fill out pages 1 and 2 of the accompanying form (so that both the churches submitting the information and the conveners receiving them are better prepared for our time together), and to submit this information by June 1. The Board asked that every church do this, regardless whether or not your church plans to attend the June 18 gathering in person.

The Board is also providing a planning worksheet that will help churches prepare for the full implementation of the pledge guidelines of R-1. This planning worksheet is simply for your information and guidance.

This journey is one for the whole body of the Diocese of Virginia and we encourage you to enter it with us as journeyers who are looking to build God’s kingdom.
