With Thanksgiving past and the holiday season approaching, this marks the beginning of the season of thankfulness and gratitude. And so we want to take this opportunity to say Thank You.
Thank you to the congregations who pay their fair share to their district and/or APF and those who stretch to pay as much as they can. Your funds make our work possible and allow us to provide resources, trainings and support to all our congregations in the region.
Thank you to all our Chalice Lighters who make a commitment to help those beyond their own congregation with growth and outreach projects, or to recover from devastating situations. Your generosity has an impact on the lives of our congregations and members that you cannot imagine.
Finally, we could not do it without our volunteers. Those who volunteer in our congregations to make them representatives of our values in your communities. The members of the district boards, our team and committee chairs and members, those who plan events, congregational volunteers who help us with on the ground planning and logistics for events and more. And our regional transitions team whose tireless work has made the move to regionalization possible. We would not be able to do anything without our volunteers. To you we say Thank You over and over again.
So to all of you who make these many things possible, we say Thank You.
Your Regional Staff
