Fruitful Harvest 2018

YOUR FRUITFUL HARVEST PLEDGE WILL...

...allow us to establish a Facility Maintenance Fund for the first time ever so that the costs of keeping our buildings safe & beautiful will not take money away from the ministries and programs that change people’s lives and bring people to Christ. Many resources are required to maintain our aging facilities. In the past several months alone, we’ve needed to replace our church roof, continue with the repair of our parking lot and walkways, and replace several of our heating and cooling units. Help us create a Facility Maintenance Fund with a pledge to the Fruitful Harvest 2018 Campaign!

Because of this need, we ask that if you gave to the last Fruitful Harvest campaign you match that gift in this 2018 campaign. If you did not participate in the last Fruitful Harvest campaign, please give whatever you can.

OUR GOAL IS TO RAISE OVER $2 MILLION DURING THIS IMPORTANT CAMPAIGN!

What is Fruitful Harvest?
Every two years, the Bishop holds a Fruitful Harvest campaign which is a mechanism for each of us to support the ministries of our Diocese. Additionally, as part of these Fruitful Harvest campaigns, our parish has had the ability to also raise money for the building up of our own parish through what’s called a "dovetail". If you want to see the impact of these dovetail campaigns over the years, look no further than our beautiful church! These Fruitful Harvest Dovetail Campaigns are our mechanism for affording our beautiful property so that we have a space to do our work and so that we don’t have to take money away from our ministries & programs to do it. In fact, past Fruitful Harvest Campaigns have funded our school, our church, our parking lots, and now our new Adoration Chapel!

Because we are holding a Dovetail Campaign, EVERY DOLLAR RAISED above our parish's Diocesan goal of $617,843 will STAY WITH OUR PARISH for the purpose of creating a Facility Maintenance Fund!
