Four congregations volunteered to serve as First-Round Congregations for Equipping the Saints. Holy Cross in Menomonee Falls was the third congregation to conduct the five-week campaign and completed the appeal in May 2022.
Donna, from Holy Cross shares the meaning of participating in the campaign.
“My contribution to the Equipping of the Saints mission appeal is to help our church and other churches to help others as I have been so blessed with my life. I pray the goal is reached.”
The Equipping the Saints Campaign has a goal that each member of the Greater Milwaukee Synod has a chance to hear the story and decide for themselves if they desire to make a financial gift to help us reach the goal. The first step in that campaign is normally to have a council presentation by video. Contact Joyce Caldwell at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how to make that presentation to your congregation.
Congregation leader training begins in November. This training is for whoever will lead your appeal in the congregation and is great continuing education for your Stewardship Team to learn all about conducting a special gifts appeal. Send as many people as you like, and feel free to send your stewardship team even if you have not had the council visit presentation yet.
