All Saints' pledges $40,000

The Rector of All Saints’ Episcopal Church announced that the Vestry has approved a parish pledge of $40,000 over two years to support the growth of Episcopal churches in the Diocese of Fort Worth.


While visiting our diocese on April 8th, the Most Rev. Michael Curry, Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church launched the “New Life Fund: Growing in New Ways Campaign.”  The campaign is meant to raise $200,000 over a two-year period to complement the $600,000 grant which the rest of The Episcopal Church has committed to grow this Church in North Texas.


Among other things, this money will help this diocese expand our presence in Parker County west of Fort Worth, something our bishop, the Rt. Rev. Scott Mayer, is very keen on doing.  It is expected that over the next decade roughly 50,000 families will be moving into the Walsh Ranch development.  The Episcopal Church intends to be there to welcome them.


All Saints’ $40,000 pledge represents what Fr. Chris Jambor calls a “13th month assessment” to the diocese to be used for church planting.  The monthly diocesan assessment which All Saints’ sends in is just over $20,000.  So, in 2017 and 2018, All Saints’ will add a “13th month assessment” ($20,000) to its diocesan support, or $40,000 over the two years.  “What this means,” according to Fr. Jambor, “is that every single person in our parish who gives any money to our mission and ministries will have a hand in spreading the gospel and the Church beyond the walls of All Saints’.”
