JOYFUL GIVING - A MESSAGE FROM YOUR STEWARDSHIP COMMITTEE

Honour the Lord with your wealth, with first fruits of all you produce; then will your barns be filled with grain, with new wine will your vats overflow. Proverbs 3:9-10.

Our ongoing stewardship efforts continues with this first of a series of messages focussed on — Joyful Giving, a framework pioneered almost 30 years ago by the Anglican Diocese of Toronto. Joyful Giving consists of four elements:

  1. Recognizing and celebrating that our financial contributions to Christ Church are a gift.
  2. Ensuring our giving is planned and comes as regularly to CCDP as breath comes to us.
  3. Contemplating that our gift should be proportional to our means.
  4. Reaching a sacrificial level of giving; one that infuses our lives with the meaning of God and allows us to walk with Jesus.

Today is Thanksgiving, the day in particular when we recognize the gifts we've received from God and the joy experienced when we return a portion of those to God's church.

Those of you who have seen our Management Team's narrative budget over the years know what these financial gifts produce: the wonderful gifts of our Ministry team, Music Director and choir, Community outreach programs, pastoral care and everything contributing to our individual spiritual health, enjoyment, belonging and well-being.

As you begin to contemplate your gifts to CCDP for the balance of this year and in 2020, we hope you'll be moved by the same joy and delight as when offering a gift to your partner, parent, child or anyone close to you. Consider this feeling with the knowledge that you are effectively re- 4 gifting' a portion of God's gifts to you, on to Christ Church Deer Park.


CCDP REFUGEE SUPPORT COMMITTEE

Thank you to the CCDP community for your overwhelming support last Sunday for our work to support refugees in Toronto! We are only a few days away from Oct 17 when our Committee will be at Pearson airport to welcome the Al Kadri family. To set the Al Kadris up for success in Toronto we need a volunteer to help with the family's IT (i.e. advising on 9 iPhones, computers, internet). If you are interested in helping our family with IT please contact Julie Scott (julie.c.scott2@gmail.com) or Jennifer Roblin (jenniferroblin@aol.com). Thank you!
