Taken from the 2018 Stewardship Report handed out on Oct 28th and available now online:
Connecting Through Grace
Thank you! You are a gracious and grace-filled community. This stewardship report flows from your generosity, creating new ministries and ways for us to be a people connecting through grace.
Thanks be to God for the gift of this community. It is our most precious gift, overflowing from God’s heart, shaping and calling us to be a community of grace. How do we see the Spirit connecting us through grace?
Look deep into the cup where love is poured, ‘”for you.” Feel joy celebrated and, when one is in sorrow, we all taste salt. See our fun and fellowship; sacrifice and service; conversations and consolations. Let the music and worship wash over you. In all these connections there is grace, connecting us with the very life of God.
Because of your financial gifts, we have explored new ways to be people of grace. More than prayers for the care of creation, we have made the commitment to reduce our carbon footprint through building renovation. We are connecting more and more children with God’s grace through our VBS outreach and choir days. We are a community of compassion, connecting with refugees at the border, where Cristo Rey Lutheran receives our gifts as Milagro de la Frontera (Miracle at the Border).
What if a stranger should drop in and ask about “this community of grace, this connecting through grace, —— what does it look like?” We can sweep our hand over every aspect of our life together and truly say, “It looks like this.”
