Stewardship pledge update as of October 31, 2013 – 31% of goal
Can you believe we only have one more week until Commitment Sunday on November 10? Have you made your 2014 pledge yet? As of Sunday, 10/27, we’ve raised $153K which gets us 31% of the way to our goal of $500K pledged income for 2014. So far, only 18% of the congregation has pledged.
We have $346K more to raise by November 10, so we need your help. We are roughly($145K) or (29%) behind where we should be at this time. If we don’t raise our goal of $500K, we will have to make some very difficult decisions as we prayerfully consider what our pledged income will support when we plan the 2014 budget.
We hope to see more pledges come in soon. Please visit the Parish Hall after service and see the Flourish-in-Faith tree that the Youth helped us build to keep track of our progress throughout the pledge campaign.
With your commitment, we will be able to support our growing mission and outreach programs as well as formation classes for children, youth and adults. The increase in financial resources will also help us bring the salary of our cherished clergy up to national standards, sustain and grow our administrative office which we depend on every day, and maintain our buildings and grounds.
