Hope. Springs. Eternal. Pledge drive
We are in the middle of our 2022 operating budget pledge drive for the first time in two years. It is a critical time for us to see where we stand financially after the pandemic has shut down in-person worship and we have then started to re-open. Slowly folks are returning. Many of you have been so generous in these difficult months. Thank you!
Our theme for this pledge drive is the same as the theme for our 150th celebration. For 150 years we have been offering the hope of Christ to Colorado Springs and the world. Our hope springs from our faith in the Eternal One, who has been with us each step of the way. Ours is an eternal journey with Christ. We give in many ways to make this journey a faithful one. Our financial giving is an important part of our growth in faith.
Worship Support Team – Dinner and Conversations
Do you volunteer at Heartstrings? If you do, thank you for serving our church in this way! If you don’t, would you like to? Either way you are invited to Dinner and Conversations on November 17 at 6:30 PM in the Wesley Room. No one is required to attend, nor is it training. This is an opportunity to meet volunteers from other worship services, gather our collective wisdom, hear from staff and volunteers about challenges we are facing, and needs that we want to address. Please email Ciera Woodward at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan on attending so we can make sure we have enough food.

Make your Advent even more special by joining us on Wednesday evenings for dinner, an Advent devotional presentation and short prayer service each week. The Heartstrings community will have a table reserved for us so we can eat together! Dinner will be served in the Fellowship Hall between 5-6pm (please arrive no later than 5:45pm). The presentation will be at 6pm, also in the Fellowship Hall. For those that would like to stay after the devotional presentation, the prayer service will be in the Hospitality Center at 6:30. Please let Tiffany know you will be sitting at the Heartstrings table by November 23. A suggested donation of $5 per dinner per person would be greatly appreciated but is not required.
