The Acts 8 Moment is all about proclaiming resurrection in the Episcopal Church. Toward that end, your prayer for the Episcopal Church and the Acts 8 Moment is essential.
We would also be grateful for your financial support. You may have noticed the Facebook posts we’ve been sponsoring to highlight the exciting work happening in the church’s Mission Enterprise Zones, and to encourage prayer for the church in the lead-up to the convention. To date we’ve been doing all this on our own dime.
Once we get to General Convention, we are hosting a prayer gathering. While we do have a sponsor, there will be further expenses – we plan to have buttons and other materials to strengthen the identity of our work, and we’ll be using A/V resources to capture and record stories of resurrection in the church. The Collect Call, our weekly podcast about prayer, is ramping up for a daily production schedule. We’re currently spending hundreds of dollars on electronic equipment for quality recording to share a “Live from General Convention” podcast with the wider church.
After General Convention, the work continues. During the triennium, the Acts 8 steering committee plans to meet two or three times for ongoing work to encourage the Episcopal Church to proclaim resurrection. Most of us cover our own expenses fully, but we have some members who require assistance. We’re also inviting others to join the committee to increase the diversity of voices (might this be you? See below), and we don’t want expense to be a barrier. There are ongoing website and online ad expenses.
If you appreciate the Acts 8 Moment, we invite you to do several things:
- Pray for Acts 8 and its work, that our church is renewed by prayer, study, and worship. For the next few days, we have suggested some particular intercessions for the church and its ministry.
- Make a financial gift to support Acts 8.
- If you are coming to General Convention, please attend the gathering on June 25 at 9:15 at in the Alpine East room of the Hilton Salt Lake City Center.
- Consider whether you are called to join the steering committee. We are always grateful for more voices. Please contact Adam Trambley to learn more.
Please note: we have not set up a 501 (c) 3 at present, so your gift will not be tax deductible. However, we will gladly supply a full accounting for all funds received and spent upon request.
