Ch'Angels - Another Way We Help Our Community

@ St. Gabriel's

Ch ’Angels is the name of the offering collected by the door as you exit the Sanctuary each week. Every month, this offering goes to different ministries and organizations supported by our congregation. Following are some notes of thanks from some of the organizations we’ve been able to help, along with a little more information about the help these groups provide.


The ALS Association of Georgia

The ALS Association of Georgia

Every day, someone in Georgia is diagnosed with ALS and, every day, they are able to access the care and support they need because of your generosity.

On behalf of Georgians living with ALS and their families, thank you for your gift to the ALS Association of Geogria received on 11/18/2022.

The most important thing the ALS Association of Georgia can do is let families living with ALS know they are not alone. Because of generous donors like you, they don’t have to go far to find information, support, care and — most importantly — hope. The ALS Association of Georgia is more than a resource. Thanks to you, we’re a community that cares.

Thank you again for providing help and hope to those living with ALS in Georgia.

Gateway Domestic Violence Center

Gateway Domestic Violence Center

In the early 1980s, a group of concerned community leaders took notice of incidents of domestic violence across the country and decided to act locally. They founded Gateway House, now known as Gateway Domestic Violence Center, in 1982. Over the years, Gateway’s programs have expanded, but one thing that has never changed is the commitment of the Board of Directors, staff, volunteers and donors to make a positive impact on the fight against domestic violence in Hall County.

As we celebrate our 40th anniversary, we want to thank you for your support of our work. We couldn’t do it without you! As you know, Gateway is a 501(c)3 nonprofit agency. No goods or services were received in exchange for your donation.

Good News Clinics

Good News Clinics

Dear Friends,

Thank you for your donation to the Good News Clinics!

Because of your support, more of our low-income and uninsured neighbors are being cared for, provided hope and given the opportunity to change their lives and their family’s lives for the better. At Good News Clinics, we care for our patients in many ways. One way we provide care is through our Health Hearts for Life program, which seeks to identify those who may have diabetes or high blood pressure as well as those with risk factors for these chronic diseases. Our goal is to help our patients learn to prevent these conditions if they don’t have them yet, and manage these conditions if they do.

On behalf of Good News Clinics and all of our patients, thank you for your support and compassion!

Episcopal Relief & Development

Episcopal Relief & Development

Thank you for St. Gabriel’s Episcopal Church’s gift to Episcopal Relief & Development.

Today and over the past few years, our world has faced unimaginable challenges.  The magnitude of suffering, illness and loss, resulting from the global pandemic and increasingly frequent disasters, defies belief.  It has also exposed some underlying conditions that we have long addressed — hunger, lack of access to health services, economic insecurity and environmental challenges.  These conditions continue to ravage many parts of the world, particularly impacting the most marginalized people. Your vital support helps us rise to meet these challenges and make a real difference in the lives of so many.

Thanks to your generosity our partners around the world have responded, as they always do, with courage, determination and breathtaking ingenuity as they address our program priorities of promoting early childhood development, reducing gender based violence, building climate resilience and responding to the devastation of natural disasters and the crisis in the Ukraine.

I’m so grateful to have you as our partner and to be standing with you now looking into the future. There is so much more to do. I know that working together for lasting change with you will get us closer to the transformed world and abundant life that God imagines for all of us.
