What to do this week

A Message from Rev. Herb Taylor

Hello from Herb

 

“United in Hope, Gathered in Spirit” we had a fantastic Stewardship Sunday.  For those of you who worshipped through the livestream, know I wasn’t kidding when I said that Christmas, Easter and Stewardship Sunday are the three great celebrations in the church year!  In each, we center on God’s love alive for us and open ourselves up to the call God has for our lives.  Even in the midst of this pandemic people responded with inspiration and we surpassed the total amount pledged on Stewardship Sunday last year.

 

We thank all who have pledged and look forward to others who through their pledges will help us make a difference in so many lives, including for each pledger.  If you have not yet pledged, please make your pledge soon so we can include yours with all the others as we plan for 2021.  Please go to our website and fill out a confidential form which will go to our financial secretary.  Remember, each new pledge will be matched by a generous donor, so if you haven’t pledged before now is the time to start this purposeful journey of faith.

 

       If you have questions about pledging, click HERE to see why pledging is important.   If you want to see a chart that shows statistics from last year and invites each of us to take a step of faith and grow in our giving, click HERE.  Know that your pledging, especially in these times, makes a statement about who you are and enables your church to continue to respond daily to the physical and spiritual needs that surround us.  It enables worship, outreach, mission, social justice, education, nurture, hospitality, welcome, and more.  This all happens not by magic, but by people like you (actually who are you!) who make a decision to give through our ministry.

 

Thank you for your commitment.  In 2021, know that your pledge enables us to be truly prepared for ministry as we are united in hope, gathered in spirit!  

 

                                Yours in Christ,
