Equipping the Saints

Equipping the Saints

Together, we can Equip the Saints in the Episcopal Church in Alabama to share the love of God with all people.

 

Equipping the Saints for Growth: Congregational Vitality

Jesus calls us to go and make disciples. We will expand our capacity to share the Gospel by making transformational investments in parishes, forming new Episcopal communities, and strengthening lay and clergy leaders. 

 

Equipping the Saints for Formation: Camp McDowell

Each year, thousands of campers, students, teachers, and guests visit Lower Camp at Camp McDowell to connect with neighbors, nature, and God. By attending to essential maintenance, we enhance opportunities for Christian formation. 

 

Equipping the Saints for Reconciliation: Racial Healing and Pilgrimage

We will create pathways to racial healing by preserving and strengthening The Church of the Good Shepherd in Montgomery, encouraging the spiritual practice of pilgrimage, and training our leaders to guide individuals and parishes toward healing.

Give Pledge

Please join us in prayer for the success of the campaign and the future of the Episcopal Church in Alabama. 

 

Lord, you have blessed us with a church that connects us to one another and to you. We thank you for this gift and ask for your guidance as we steward it. Empower us to equip the saints for the work of your kingdom. May our gifts to this camapign be a reflection of your love, find favor in your sight, and may we walk in the footsteps of Jesus who loves us. Amen.

 

Lay and clergy leaders from across the diocese have written a 14-day devotional with reflections and prayers to guide us through a time of discernemtn. As we contemplate the ways in which we can support the future of our church, may these moments of reflection deepen our connection to God and each other.
