Please take the time now to look into your hearts to determine the abundance you can share. Think about all that is important to you in our church community. What do you want to continue to support? What would make you heart broken if we could no longer provide it? Below is a suggested giving guide from the Unitarian Universalist Association.
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 $290/month, or $3500/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.
Please be ready to turn in your heart-felt pledge. Our goal is to have 100% of members’ pledge cards returned. Last year we received $229,258 in generous pledges! What will 2014 bring? The sky is the limit through your abundant hearts!
