The Greatest Gift
That the Deanery of Algoma undertakes a shared project of primary evangelism in 2014.
With the approval of Deanery Council, members of the deanery congregations will be invited to share in the designing, building, and use of a parade float to be entered in as many Algoma and district 2014 Christmas parades as possible.
The float, called THE GREATEST GIFT, supported by a crew of costumed parade-walkers, will ask and answer the question—What is the greatest gift?—The babe of Bethlehem.
- For the Anglican and Lutheran churches of Algoma to make a public statement of faith at a significant moment in a number of local communities.
- For many of our members to offer their varied gifts and skills in the design and production of a Christmas float and parade costumes.
- For many of our members to get to know each other better and share in fellowship.
- For many of our members to actually step out in faith…. and walk (or ride) the parade route(s).
- For all of our congregations to support a shared project through prayer.
- To document the entire project, in words, photos, video, so that our experiences can be shared broadly.
