Our 2023-2024 Stewardship theme is "Rooted in Abundance," and draws from this Scripture verse:
Blessed are those who trust in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD. They shall be like a tree planted by water, sending out its roots by the stream. It shall not fear when heat comes, and its leaves shall stay green; in the year of drought it is not anxious, and it does not cease to bear fruit.
Christ Church has been blessed to draw nourishment across the past century and a half from the Holy Scriptures, the Living Spirit of God, Mexico City and the Anglican Church of Mexico's hospitality, countless expatriates and Mexican nationals' generosity, and extraordinary community ties with local non-profit groups. We have been blessed in order to share the blessings of the good news of Jesus Christ, who sets the prisoners free, makes the lame to walk and the blind to see, crowns the bereaved with lovingkindness, sets widows and orphans within families, etc.
To make a financial commitment ("pledge") to assist Christ Church's ministry in 2024, you may contact our accountant Edgar Gomez directly to set up a regular bank deposit here in Mexico City or in the United States, you may donate through our Paypal button on this website (although we do lose a portion of your gift to Paypal), or you may make cash donations when you attend worship services.
We rely on your gifts of presence, time, finances, and talents for every dimension of our life and ministry. Every person matters! May God grant you every good gift you need today. Sincerely, with appreciation, Christ Church
Reflection Questions related to our theme and the imagery of a tree rooted in abundance:
The Leaves & Fruit: What blessings for others have come from God’s gifts of abundance in your life? What comm3itment do you offer to God to bless others in 2024?
The Branches: What risks in your life have you taken to follow Jesus and share his good news with others?
Who and/or what is your spiritual support system which enables you to stand tall with courage and confidence?
Who and/or what has nourished you spiritually across your life, as water and nutrients from the earth nourish the tree’s branches? Be as specific as possible, e.g. instead of saying “the Bible,” you might name a particular person, verse, or story in the Bible that has been meaningful to you. What habits, principles, &/or events help you feel spiritually connected and accountable to God and others, in the way a tree’s roots connect with other tree roots? Again, be specific.
The Earth: What do you consider to be the “ground of your being”—the abundance of your existence?
