The Church gathers in the evening to give thanks for the day that is ending.
In the earliest tradition, this began with the lighting of lamps as darkness fell. The evening psalms and Magnificat bring the day just past to focus for the Christian: “God has cast down the mighty from their thrones, and has lifted up the lowly”; “God has remembered the promise of mercy, the promise made to our ancestors.” Prayers are intercession are almost always part of the church’s liturgy, but those which conclude evening prayer are especially important. As day ends, the church again and again lifts up to God the needs and sorrows and failures of all the world. Such intercession is the daily task and joy of the baptized.

2017 Stewardship Appeal
Our theme for the 2017 Stewardship Appeal is “Living Generously.” Living Generously is a call to action to each of us as followers of Jesus. He showed us the way to live generously: by welcoming the outcast, by dining with tax collectors and sinners, by healing the sick, by teaching, by forgiving, and by ultimately giving his life so that all might have life abundant.
We are inviting you to continue to live in that same spirit of generosity and prayerfully consider making an Annual Commitment to our 2017 Stewardship Appeal. Our goal is to receive pledges and gifts totaling $140,000 to meet our operating budget goals next year. We are asking all members to “Take a Step” in your regular giving by increasing your current financial commitment.
