Would you like to partner with us this year?


 

Stewardship is a season in which we spend some focused prayer and discernment acknowledging all that God has done for us and the many blessings he has lavished upon us, and our response to all that He has done for us.

The pledge that you make is for the period January 1 through December 31. Please click here to submit your pledge card online. By physically indicating what the Lord has called us to return to Him it helps us to tangibly grasp onto something that is otherwise an abstract commitment.

Thank you for your generosity!




Bible Study


 

1 Thessalonians Bible Study

The new believers in Thessalonica had maintained their faith in the face of persecution, but they misunderstood the second coming of Christ. Hoping to correct it, the Apostle Paul sent instructions about how to live in anticipation of Christ's return. In his letter to them, 1 Thessalonians, Paul's teaching provides helpful guidance for all Christ-followers on what it means to live as a Christian in the face of an uncertain world.


This study meets on Thursdays at 6 pm in-person and via Zoom and virtually by clicking here.

New Bible Study


 

2 Thessalonians Bible Study (Begins 4/18)

In Paul's second letter to the Thessalonians, he continues to encourage them to stand firm in the hope of Christ's return. Here he assures his readers that Christ had not yet returned, despite rumors that Paul himself had said the opposite. To encourage them, Paul briefly describes the circumstances that will surround Christ's return, giving them signs to look for when trying to confirm rumors of the Second Coming. A Leader's Guide is included.


This study meets on Thursdays at 6 pm in-person and via Zoom and virtually by clicking here.

If you plan to participate, please contact Fr. Neal. The cost of the book is $10 and can be submitted to the parish office by Sun, 3/31.

Have you remembered St. Ann's in your estate planning?


 

In order to conduct our programs and maintain our facilities, St. Ann's Episcopal Church conducts an annual stewardship campaign in order to meet our budget needs.  Another source of support are the gifts parishioners and friends leave the church when their life on earth comes to an end. They have been thoughtful in preparing their estate plans and wills to include St. Anns.  Many capital projects have been funded over the years by these types of gifts.

The leadership of St. Ann's would like to make our friends and parishioners aware of this giving opportunity.   

Ways to Make a Planned Gift

  • Bequests & Wills/Living Trusts
  • Charitable Gift Annuities
  • Charitable Remainder Trusts
  • Pooled Income Fund
  • Life Insurance & Retirement Accounts
  • Real Estate, Appreciated Property, & Tangible Personal Property
  • Charitable Lead Trust

More information about these different options has been provided by the Episcopal Church Foundation.


Please contact Fr. Neal through the parish office if you are interested in making a bequest or estate gift.

The office phone number is 518-842-2363. All interactions are strictly confidential.
