This year we’re turning our stewardship emphasis inside-out. Starting with the series of small but meaningful mailers you’ve just received, we’re inviting you to open yourself to God’s love in a new way — and discover for yourself how your own life is transformed as you open yourself to the opportunities this church provides to Love God, Serve People, and Transform Lives.
I am writing you now to invite and encourage you to make your 2014 financial commitment to our church early this year — and to make your commitment now to support the ministries of our church in a way that is meaningful, relevant and transforming to you. And, even though our annual stewardship emphasis officially begins in late January, we know that some like to make their gift early. We hope this year you will join them!
The scope and variety of what we do together is staggering — and the financial commitment required to sustain these efforts is significant. In order to continue enriching and expanding these vital ministries, we must increase our total giving and commitments by at least 5% in order to meet our ministry goals for helping people experience God’s love.
Please prayerfully consider your 2014 annual commitment to our church — and if you’re ready now, CLICK HERE to make your gift or commitment now.
Thank you for all you bring to the ministries of our church as we reach deep inside ourselves and our faith community — and then out to the lives we serve — in order to bring about a greater openness to God’s love to all the communities we serve.
Grace and Peace,
Tim Bruster, Senior Pastor
