into the Episcopal Church, can join classes that begin this month. Diocesan Confirmation occurs at the Cathedral on March 18. If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Father Miller.
Are you up for a challenge? January’s sponsored ministry is the Atlanta Community Food Bank’s annual Hunger Walk. Each year, the Food Bank comes together with five other partner agencies to “raise funds and awareness for hunger relief through a sponsored 5K event …. Whether you choose to walk or run, you’ll join thousands coming together to support our neighbors in need and celebrate the work that’s being done.” The money our parish raises goes to the Episcopal Community Foundation who, in turn, directs those funds back into our communities to help end hunger.
The Church of Our Saviour has had a team of folks raising money, walking and running since about 2011. The last two years our parish has placed third in fundraising within the diocese. (Last year Father Zack was in the top five for individuals.) For a parish our size that is really impressive! Let’s try to see if we can move ourselves into second place this year, and get Father Chris up into the top five! If everyone is willing to either donate monies, raise funds, or walk or run in the event itself, we should be able to accomplish this goal.
This year’s walk is on Sunday, February 25, starting at 2pm from the Georgia World Congress Center. Mark your calendars now and details about signing up and raising funds will be forthcoming.
Each month, the Stewardship Committee is highlighting various ministries that the Church of Our Saviour is engaged in or supports, using our time, talents, and treasure. If you would like to explore opportunities to begin or increase your participation in the parish’s various guilds and ministries, please contact Father Miller or one of the Stewardship Committee members – Jeff Chancellor, Lauren Giles, Brian Mullaney, and Mary Sommers. It only takes a minute to share God’s love. Do you have a minute?
will be held on Sunday, Jan. 28, between the services (9:45–10:45am). Following the early service, we will quickly move down to the parish hall where a light continental breakfast will be ready and waiting. Since we will have only about an hour we will need to be intentional about our time and the use of it to ensure business is taken care of in the most efficient manner possible. This will be Father Miller’s first chance to speak to all of us in one setting and give him an opportunity to let us know his vision for the parish. Make your plans to attend now!
