Stewardship 2014: Abundant Hearts, Abundant Living

We are now asking you to look into your hearts and make a pledge for our 2014 Stewardship Drive. Only you know what you can truly give, what our community means to you, and how you can best support it. Like the 2013 campaign, the amount we raise for 2014 will only be limited by your decision to give. This year’s goals will be the same: Pledges from 100% of our members, and an increase of your 2013 pledge. To help you, below is a suggested giving guide. Take time now to decide what you are willing to give, so you will be ready to fill out you pledge card when you get it.

Supporter, Sustainer, Visionary, or Chalice Lighter — Which one are you?

  • Supporter- 2-3%. The congregation is a significant part of your life and it promotes your spiritual growth. If your income is $50,000, your fair-share commitment is ~$125/month, or $1000- $1500/yr.
  • Sustainer- 4-6%. The congregation is central to your identity, and you are committed to sustaining the programs and ministries of the church. If your income is $50,000, your fair-share commitment is $167/month, or $2000/year.
  • Visionary- 7-9%. You are committed to both the present and future growth of the congregation. If your income is $50,000, your fair-share commitment is $208/month, or $2500/year.
  • Chalice Lighter- 10%+. You designate 10 per cent of your income as a way of living out your spiritual principles. If your income is $50,000, your fair-share commitment is $417/month, or $5,000/year.

Last year we received $229,258 in generous pledges! What will 2014 bring? The sky is the limit through your abundant hearts!
