We stand together through the milestones of youth, from baptism to confirmation. We support one another through the milestones of our adult lives—from weddings to learning and growing as Christians. We reach out to serve those who are less fortunate in our community and abroad. We empathize and share a laugh with one another over potlucks and luncheons. On Sundays, we come together with God to connect deeply with ourselves and others from within our historic building.

These moments and opportunities are indeed priceless. However, on a day-to-day basis, they are made possible by allocations from our annual budget. This is why we come together again at this time of year to consider how we can give of ourselves to support these programs and to build for our future. When we each give what we can, we build an even stronger foundation for the road we share ahead.

It is time to make a promise to yourself, and to your fellow church members, to lend your support to this beloved organization for the coming fiscal year. Pledges are requested in advance of Pledge Dedication Sunday, on November 12. We know our schedules will only become busier as the year progresses, so why not join me and my family, and state your pledge sooner? How about today?

You should have received a letter in the mail with further details regarding suggested pledge amounts and the ways in which you can state your pledge.

If you have any questions, please reach out to me.
