Stewardship: God's work and God's love
in new and unexpected ways.
Stewardship and God’s Future
Throughout 2021 All Saints’ has met the pandemic with courage and creativity. This is the foundation for God’s future for us.
We have all benefited from the incredible blessings of our Music Ministry - the virtual choir anthems and service music; the spectacularly beautiful Easter and Christmas services; the handbell choir; our cantors; and now the return of our choir singing live. Music for all ages and abilities will continue to play a strong role at All Saints’.
Technology has been a tool that we have learned to use in new ways - our weekday Bible study on Zoom includes a dozen people in three different states; Compline every night on Facebook Live allows us to gather for community prayer; we have used Zoom for fellowship and meetings; and of course are continuing to live stream worship.
Our Rummage Sale in October brought out neighbors, visitors, and parishioners. It was a financial success; more importantly, it was a community festival that brought enjoyment to many. We are still hearing from people who were so happy that our Sale - and our neighborhood spirit - was back!
The Twelve Baskets Food Pantry sustained many families in our community, along with Vets at the Valley Brook apartments, and the Sisters in Mendham. With shifting economic conditions, we are in discernment with other groups in town about how best to meet the food security needs of our neighbors.
Prayer has undergirded all that we do, and it is what will continue to lead us and guide us into God’s future.
As we make our pledge commitments for 2022 let’s remember the trust that our community has in us, and have the same faith and trust in God who is the giver of all good things.

We are living through a time of tremendous change – in our work, our families, the world at large, and here at All Saints’ Church. The pandemic has pushed all of ways in ways we could not have imagined and have often been unwelcome.
Yet we know that in the midst of trouble, disruption, and grief, there can also be good and precious gifts – a new appreciation of life, more time spent with family, a renewal of important relationships, a re-ordering of priorities in ways that support our life, health, and well-being.
The image of the butterfly and chrysalis above reminds us that beauty, freedom, and new life can emerge from a time of difficulty and change. The butterfly is a symbol of transformation and Resurrection – God’s perfect gift!
We do not know what comes next – in life, in the world, in this pandemic. But what we do know is that there is the future, and God is in it – with us and for us. And with your generous financial support, with your participation, and with your faith, love, and prayers we will be ready to meet God’s future with joy and with hope.
Thank you for being one of God’s faithful and perfect gifts.
