Thank You

We would like to extend our gratitude to the Rev Dr. Angus Stuart for his generosity in offering his performance of the “Gospel of Mark” on June 18, 2022. This 2-hour one-man show had the audience spellbound. Proceeds of the funds raised will go toward AV enhancements.

*Stewardship Reflection

From Sunday by Sunday Reflections on Stewardship prepared by the Ven. Dr. Michael Pollesel.

Luke 9:51-62
The life of a steward isn’t for those who want it easy. It requires discipline and single-mindedness. Each of us can come up with some excuse or other as to why it’s not for us.
