Remembering Our Story - Becoming St. Bartholomew's


As the calendar year draws to a close and we kick off the season of Advent and a whole new liturgical year, my mind is drawn to what God has done in us over the past year. My anticipation of the return of Christ is encouraged by the way you all have engaged in God’s mission here at St. Bartholomew’s. And at the top of my mind is our story of “becoming St. Bartholomew’s” in 2017. 

On July 1 we set off as our own organization, out from the cover and direct care of our sending church All Saints Dallas. One consequence of this move was to open a checking account so we could conduct the day to day mission, ministry, and business of the church. That bank account started with $0.00. But, as we began to talk about raising Seed Money, operating cash that could give us 2-3 months of funds, you all stepped up and responded in courage and faithfulness. And it’s in that courage and faithfulness that we’ve operated and lived over the past 5 months as you’ve continued to tithe faithfully. 

As the year draws to a close and you grow in your anticipation of Christ’s return and the celebration of his birth, please remember St. Bartholomew’s - where we’ve come from, where we’ve been, and where God is taking us in 2019 and beyond.
