We are excited that your parish is scheduling an ECF Sunday!
As you know, the primary purpose of ECF Sunday is to discuss planned giving with your parishioners. ECF's Executive Director, Lindsey Hardegree, will preach at your services about ECF's call to serve people experiencing poverty and oppression in our Diocese, and during adult formation Lindsey
will address how we can continue serving in a long-term sustainable
way that benefits both your parish and the least among us.
We have found that parishes have the most success with an ECF Sunday when they promote the day for several weeks in advance, so we will send you a toolkit with information and graphics you can use to prepare your congregation for our visit.
Please send a copy of the bulletin one week before the service to LHardegree@episcopalatlanta.org. We need this information to prepare the sermon for the visit.
