This Sunday is Commitment Sunday – please complete your pledges!
This Sunday is Commitment Sunday! Have you made your 2014 pledge yet? Thanks to all those who have already filled out their pledge paperwork. As of Sunday, November 3, 27% of the congregation has pledged raising $227K which gets us 45% of the way to our goal of $500K pledged income for 2014.
We have $273K more to raise by November 10, so we need your help. We are roughly ($173K) or (35%) 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 our 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.
