Steve Meigs, Unity Church of San Antonio Board Treasurer
This week marks the kick-off of our 2019 Intentional Giving Campaign. The theme for this year’s campaign is “Behind the Scenes.” At one of our first meetings, the Intentional Giving Team was discussing the myriad of ways our members contribute to our community.
We made a list…and it was a long list…of the things you do to make a difference for others and to support our CommUNITY. Looking at our list, we realized that although many of these activities are well-publicized and highly visible, there are just as many (if not more) that happen quietly in the background with little notice.
We decided that recognizing these “Behind the Scenes” activities was a good way to help us appreciate how important all this support is to our CommUNITY. In coming weeks, we will feature several of these “Behind the Scenes” stories in this newsletter, in our website blog and on social media. It is not possible to tell you about every one of these powerful efforts, but we will highlight a few to underscore the value of your gifts to this CommUNITY and beyond.
Yes – your Intentional Giving pays the utility bills and all the other expenses that go into operating this ministry day-to-day. Your gifts support Sunday services, the Youth Ministry, and the fellowship opportunities that define our CommUNITY. Your giving also makes possible a host of spiritual outreach and other community advocacy activities that help spread our light into the world.
Last, and certainly not least, your giving supports the many “Behind the Scenes” activities that make a difference in all of our lives. Bottom line: your Intentional Giving is what makes this CommUNITY. We are grateful for these gifts and for you!
In the coming weeks, be sure to check out our weekly e-news for a glimpse of what goes on “Behind the Scenes” at Unity Church of San Antonio through personal stories of those who are involved!
