How to Fulfill your Pledge Commitment
After you’ve made your pledge, you can fulfill it at any point in the fiscal year, in whatever way works best for you. You can make one payment, or installments, i.e. quarterly, monthly, weekly in the Sunday offering basket… See our DONATE page for details on ways to give.
To make record keeping easy on our end, please note that it is a pledge payment, along with the fiscal year it’s going towards (i.e. “Pledge 19-20”). Thank you!
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 2019-20!
Since Sunday, March 31, there have been many easy opportunities for you to make a financial pledge for the coming 2019-20 year (July 1, 2019-June 30, 2020). There will be friendly helpful people at a table in Fellowship Hall on Community/Pledge Day, with pledge cards already labeled with your name if you made a pledge last year. There will also be blank pledge cards available. You do not need to be a member of the congregation to make a financial pledge. Everyone is welcome to participate and support the work of our congregation!
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.)
