Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
So much is different this year. Some of us spent time furloughed; some lost our job altogether. Some didn’t have a job in the first place and now despair in ever finding one. Some of us were lucky enough that not much changed except for social distancing, wearing a mask, washing our hands, and avoiding crowds. We all learned that what really mattered was family, friends, and faith. God has taught us to slow down, trust, and believe.
The leaders of our church must now begin planning for 2021. We share with you the hopes and dreams that we will again worship in person on Sunday mornings just as soon as it is safe. We pray for a vibrant music program, small groups gaining traction, expanding our mission and outreach, and watching the Family Ministry program flourish. Receiving your pledge commitment is the foundation of setting the course for next year. Your leadership team knows that this stewardship campaign holds special challenges and unknowns for many of us. We are not setting seemingly unattainable goals. It requires $200,000.00 just to pay our fixed expenses. We will align our goals and budget according to the commitments received by all of you. We ask only that you pray and listen to what God is calling you to do at this time in the life of the church.
Your estimate of giving allows you to pledge first to the General Operating Budget as you have done in the past. This will dictate what staffing and programming we can support in 2021. Then we ask that you consider making a separate pledge to the Building Fund. Only then can we set plans in motion to make the needed improvements to our facilities.
Please fill out this estimate of giving form by October 12, 2020.
For all that we’ve already accomplished together during this challenging season, for all that we will accomplish together in the future, thank God and thanks to all of YOU.
