Stewardship includes all the ways we care for our congregation. Financial gifts, gifts of time, and gifts of talent are our love and commitment made visible. All aspects of stewardship can be as much about continually nurturing a spirit of generosity as they are about obligation and responsibility.
Support Our Budget for Next Year!
Beginning Sunday, March 25, there will be several easy opportunities for you to make a financial pledge for the coming 2018-19 year (July 1, 2018-June 30, 2019). For the next few Sundays there will be friendly helpful people at a table in Fellowship Hall after each service, with pledge cards already labeled with your name if you made a pledge last year. There will also be pledge cards in the orders of service for your convenience. You can also attend activities on Pledge Day, April 14, and sign your pledge card then!
If you would like to pledge online, click here and select “Pledge Commitment” and then select Fund Account “Pledges: 18-19 Pledge.”
Our operating budget is the way that the church is able to cover all the costs associated with operating the church including minister and staff salaries, building and grounds upkeep and maintenance, programming, and social justice work beyond our walls.
Pledge Day Memories:
Here’s a slide show from Earth Day/Pledge Day 4-22-17 Rev. Macklin created it on her phone! (It takes about 30 seconds to download.)
