Stewardship Campaign 2020

If you plant goodness, you will harvest faithful love. Hosea 10:12

 
Stewardship is an invitation to shared ministry. If done faithfully through first fruits, proportional, sacrificial giving it can lead to a transformed life as it helps to clarify what we believe about money and our understanding of the responsibility God has given us as stewards of our resources and His church. This year’s campaign will look a little different due to the pandemic—canvassers will deliver your packet to you and stay in touch with you through the campaign. You will have a church-addressed, stamped envelope to return your pledge card in so that you don’t have to come to Consecration Sunday if you are not comfortable doing so. We are also starting our campaign a little early—each Sunday starting September 13, there will be a reflection and a video released of various ministries that we are spotlighting in the midst of the COVID crisis. The September issue of the Tower will also highlight our core Stewardship ministry team. During this year’s “Faith Filled Generosity” Stewardship Campaign, discern how you might partner with God and Ascension to do God’s work of kingdom building. See this week's spotlight ministry's video below:

Altar Guild service embodies the Church of the Ascension's mission of sharing love and grace with God and one another. The Altar Guilds contributions are an outward devotion to the greater glory of God as we do our humble, quiet work to prepare the sacraments, care for the vessels, linens, hangings and candles, for our congregation and the community. Preparing these items for worship is more than a task, it is a true mission. The sacraments are outward and visible signs of the inward and spiritual grace given by Christ. The gift of our time and talent to serve God and one another in his house is a very great privilege.
 
Tending to and making ready the space and objects for worship requires a willingness to make sacrifices of the Altar Guild members time, usually beyond anything offered to the church before. It takes precedence over many personal, social, and family considerations. The Altar Guild provides a critical service, as the Altar is the center of our Christian Church. Around it God's people gather to celebrate the mysteries of Christ's body and blood. The Eucharist along with our baptism bind us to Christ. Whatever we do to live out our Christian life gets renewed and nourished at the Altar.
 
Altar Guild prayer:
“Almighty God, grant we beseech thee, that we may handle holy things with reverence and perform our work with such faithfulness and devotion that it may rise with acceptance before thee and obtain thy blessing, through Christ our Lord. Amen.”
