Do Not Be Afraid

We hear these words in scripture so often because we so often need to hear them ourselves when change is upon us. The world changes around us. There’s change within our churches. Acknowledging change and transition is useful and can help a congregation in many ways. Annual giving during a transition can be a challenge but if we lean into our faith and remember whose we are and to whom we belong then it can uplift a congregation.

This annual giving theme reflects the transformation and encouragement of the many voices who come as messengers in our lives and remind us that God’s love is greater than the fear we may feel.

While this annual giving program does not continue the foundation laid by previous programs in the use of visual storytelling, we encourage you to use the icons, etc, as they work best for you. If you’d like to continue to use them in the themes you’ve used them before – you absolutely may do so. Of if you’d like to change – or even use them for the first time! – you can do that, too. They are yours to use as you desire within your own context.
