As a community seeking God’s eternal changelessness amid the chances and changes of life, we need your gifts, talents, hopes, and dreams. Giving financially helps foster an environment where the mission and ministry of our Church continue to be lived each and every day.
At Church of Our Saviour, we continue the journey of expanding our outreach, worship, and teaching while simultaneously cultivating a more healthy, sustainable, and robust organization. Over the past year, COS has made great strides (thanks to our dedicated parishioners), but we have so much further to go! I write this to invite your ongoing participation in the life of this parish through the 2022 Stewardship Campaign.
In the coming year, your vestry and staff leaders will continue to offer worship (digitally and in person) in ever-expanding ways that seek to meet the needs of our community. For staffing and planning purposes, our wardens and I have named COS’ ministry for seniors and pastoral care, along with reaching out to young families in our neighborhood, as the most important initiatives in the coming year. More than that, your vestry has identified several one-time capital expenses in COS’ near future including fixing audio issues in the historic sanctuary and ensuring that our campus is safe for those with mobility issues. For these reasons, your vestry is once again asking for your pledge for the 2022 annual giving campaign. We are also asking for a one-time “pledge plus” gift. This gift will be used for specific building upgrades identified by the vestry.
I cannot thank you enough for being a part of this wonderful community.

Today’s gifts are important because they enable us to grow in our faith and reach out to others. Tomorrow’s gifts are equally important because they allow for the future ministry of our church. Through God’s grace and your generosity, Church of Our Saviour will be in a strong position to bring the message of hope in Jesus Christ to the people of the San Gabriel Valley for the years to come.
