Upcoming Events in Detail

Stewardship Campaign

Sunday Oct 21-Nov 11–Annual Pledge Drive: “What Shall We Bring?”

Stewardship CampaignOur annual pledge drive begins October 21st, and this year’s theme is “What Shall We Bring?” As we explore this question through Stewardship
moments during Sunday morning worship, we may find some surprising, thought-provoking, and encouraging answers. Letters from our Stewardship board go out the week of October 15th. It will include a pledge card. If you don’t receive one, please feel free pick one up at the church.

For four Sundays we will explore different aspects of stewardship: Gifts of Presence, Gifts of Love, Gifts of Faithfulness and Gifts of Words and Deeds. Our children will also have an opportunity to participate. On Sunday, October 21st, Children’s Sabbath, they will receive their very own pledge card that will depict Actions of Service. They will have the opportunity to choose actions that they “pledge” to do or participate in through this next year. On Sunday, November 11th, we will gather together after worship for our Stewardship Stew. A time of food and celebration of our commitment to our church community. If you have any questions about the pledge card process, please contact the Stewardship Chair Jason Hine or Pastor Karin. Let’s prepare to hear and ponder those answers together as we journey toward Stewardship Sunday on Nov 11.
