We thank you all for your ongoing financial support of the Church. Your faithful giving is why as a church we remain financially sound. However during this time of not gathering together most of our ongoing expenses continue on. We are able to process checks that are mailed in, so if you wish to continue your giving during this stay-at-home time please do so. We wish you well and thanks be to God for all His blessings!
Most of us, at one point or another, have confused stewardship with the church’s need to receive. The reality is that stewardship is about directing our time, talent, and treasure toward God’s purposes as a personal response to God’s goodness. As we grow in generosity, we grow in faith. This is the essence of what Jesus means in Matthew 6:21 when he says, “where you treasure is, there your heart will be also.” There is a direct relationship between where our money goes and how our hearts grow.
Stewardship Campaign Highlights
There were 75 pledges in 2020 (an increase of four). Money pledged in 2020 is $283,030, a 4% increase from 2019. Twenty-seven pledge amounts were increased over last year, and 15 new pledges from mostly new members were received. Previous and new pledges together show 60% of those pledging have increased their pledge amounts from last year! "Where our treasure is, so will our hearts be also" Matt. 6:21.
Thank you for all your prayers, your giving, and your faithfulness. God is good!
