Overflowing - Our Annual Series on Financial Discipleship

  • Homily for The Heart of Giving (week 1) found here.
  • Homily for The Heart of Generosity (week 2) found here.
  • Homily for The Heart of Mission (week 3/Commitment Sunday) found here.

We are very grateful for the generous response we received on Commitment Sunday (May 7th) – thank you to everyone who made a commitment to take a step up in their giving.

We received:

  • 36 requests for envelopes
  • 105 PAR (Pre-authorized Remittance) increases
  • 94 commitments to increase envelope giving
  • 22 commitments to sign up for PAR 
  • 150 commitments to read The Blessed Life book

If you requested offering envelopes, they will be mailed to you in the first 2 weeks of June.  Envelope packages are mailed quarterly.  The next package will include envelopes for the months of July, August and September.

If you requested a PAR increase and have already notified the office of the details, the increase will be effective June 1st.  If you would still like to increase your PAR you can do so at any time by contacting Joanne (902-443-0725 ex. 28).

There will be 2 information sessions on using life insurance for Planned Giving on Thursday, May 24th (one session begins at 2pm & one begins at 7pm).  If you would like to attend one of these sessions please RSVP to Bill McKay (902-401-9756).

If you requested a copy of The Blessed Life book we have placed an order and hope to have them in by late May/early June.  Stay tuned for how/when to pick up your copy.

New PAR cards

For those using PAR, please note that we are making a slight change to our current process. PAR cards will now be made available at the back of the church for you to pick up on the way to the pew for placement in the collection.
