Our Stewardship Series begins on Sunday, October 16, marking the time of year when we as a church focus our thoughts and prayers on our pledges to All Saints for 2017. It is also a time for reflection on how our monies have been used over the past year and how blessed we are at All Saints. Our slogan for the series this year is "Generous Living," which describes the kind of lives we want to steward for God's kingdom.
