REACHing Breakthrough, August 2015

Today was Commitment Sunday, the official end of St Peter’s REACH Campaign.  REACH is a parish based, diocesan capital campaign to raise money for mission and ministry.   You can read about the Diocesan portions of the campaign.

At St Peter’s we’ve been focused on ways we can make our parish more accessible.  To that end $98,800 have been committed by parishioners.  Which is amazing.

Today, for Morsels and Stories and the sermon, I talked a bit about why we’d do something like REACH and everyone present was invited to fill out a commitment card which we then placed on the altar and prayed over.  (The audio stops once we start filling out the cards.)

Here are before and after pictures of the box of problems:
