Join Vestry in Pledging to Annual Appeal

It is an exciting time to be part of Christ Church! As we continue our journey to discover our shared vision for ministry, your Stewardship Team hopes that you will join the Vestry and all of us in committing to pledge in this year’s Annual Appeal. 100% of the current Vestry and clergy, along with those rotating off the Vestry, have made financial commitments to support our emerging vision. Two pledges are new; 80% represent an increase in support. If you are able, please consider increasing you financial commitment this year.

If you have never participated in pledging, we hope you will take this important leap in your spiritual practice and your commitment to our shared ministry. Don’t hesitate to contact one of the clergy or a member of the stewardship team below if you have questions about how to begin this important step in your spiritual life.

Pledge cards were sent out in January, along with important information about our proposed church budget and tools for discerning an appropriate annual pledge consistent with our varied circumstances. If you did not receive this information, please contact the Church Office and we will send it to you right away. You can send in your completed and signed commitment card at any time, bring it to the office or deposit it in the offering plate on any Sunday.

We hope all will join on March 6th, Consecration Sunday, as we drop our commitment cards or symbols of already submitted cards into baskets on our way to the Communion rail at our worship services. After the 10am service, we will gather for a special lunch to celebrate God’s goodness, and our shared accomplishment. Together, we can continue to proclaim the love of God and neighbor in new and powerful ways.
