On Pentecost Sunday, St. Andrew’s joined with churches across the Anglican Diocese of the Great Lakes to raise funds to support church planting efforts in the diocese. It’s our pleasure to share with you the following letter from our bishop, pictured above with Deacon Becky Spanos and Fr. Ron Baird, our rector.
Dear Family at St. Andrew’s,
Thank you for your generous offering of $677.00 to the ADGL Pentecost Offering for Church Planting! Our diocesan mission states, “The Anglican Diocese of the Great Lakes exists to make disciples who make disciples, grow churches who plant churches, and be a diocese that births new dioceses for the glory of Christ and His Kingdom.” Because of your labor, generosity and faithfulness to the Lord we can live more fully into this God given mission! In Philippians 1:3-5 St. Paul writes, “I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now.” Thank you for your faithful partnership in the gospel. To God Be the Glory!
The Rt. Rev. Dr. Ronald W. Jackson Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of the Great Lakes
