Be Heard! Complete the Parish Survey

Be Heard! Complete the Parish Survey

In early April, Rector Ledlie Laughlin shared news  of plans and projects underway, and the formation of six different task forces to guide them. Today we invite you to join that effort by sharing your thoughts in a parish-wide survey in the areas of worship, education, stewardship and communication. The vestry seeks to learn more about the feelings, experience, and ideas of all St. Columbans, and asks you to take this survey and let us know how you feel.

Give to our Outreach Ministry

At St. Columba’s, our outreach ministries touch many lives and make a difference in the world. In 2017-18, we will spend $377,093.97 on outreach, much of it funded through your annual giving. But as in years past, we have a $50,000 gap to fill, one previously covered by Fannie Mae grants. We need your help to fill this gap. Please make your contribution today (selecting Outreach - General).
