All we have is God's gift. How will we use it to further His Kingdom?
Living Generously, Giving Joyfully
Our Christian faith is all about relationships – our relationship with our Good God in Jesus, and our relationships with each other in the fellowship of the Holy Spirit.
The priority of our relationships is JOY – Jesus, Others, You.  It’s what Jesus taught the disciples (and teaches us) when He summarized the Ten Commandments saying “Love God, and love your neighbor as yourself.”  That’s why we’ve chosen Living Generously, Giving JOY-fully as the theme for our Annual Stewardship Appeal.
Ways to Give - Shares of Stock
Your generosity enables St. Boniface’s joyful worship and vibrant ministries!  Some parishioners choose to give via shares of stock.  Gifts of stock provide several benefits.  Your giving doesn’t affect your monthly cash flow.  You may be able to give a greater gift than otherwise.  And, if the stock is an appreciated stock, you may enjoy tax savings.  As always, your financial planner can help you determine which means of giving is best for you.  For details on giving shares of stock click here.  For ideas on other ways to support our ministries, see the column to the right.
Celebrating a Life, Celebrating a Legacy
With thanksgiving, the Vestry recently received the bequest of Winafred Schoeffler.  She and her husband, Dwight, joined St. Boniface in the late 1990s.  Immediately, Winafred jumped into parish life, participating in the Women’s Book Group, Círculo Español, Episcopal Church Women, Foyers, Sunday’s Bible Study, and Education for Ministry.  Traveling on our mission trip to the Dominican Republic and volunteering with Family Promise were two of the ways she shared her concern for others.  Reaching out to the newcomer, fellowship and bridge were among her passions, and she combined them by creating the Bridge Group, which brought together parishioners as well as community members for afternoons of friendly competition on the church campus.  The common thread through Winafred’s active life here was her love of St. Boniface -- its ministries and its people.  Because of her planned generosity, the ministries and fellowship that were so important to Winafred will continue to thrive, welcoming newcomers and enveloping them in our parish life, just as she and Dwight once were.
