By Debbie Spencer, Elder
For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Debbie Spencer and I’m the Stewardship Elder. According to the Christian tradition, stewardship refers to the way time, talents, material possessions, or wealth are used or given for the service of God.
Over the next few weeks, you will be hearing from members of some of the committees at our church. They have been asked to share with you the impact your giving makes in fulfilling the needs of the church and community.
This is a stewardship campaign like no other, due to the pandemic. Even though we haven’t been in the congregation on Sunday mornings, the work must go on—and it has. Your Session, their committees, and the staff have done an amazing job in serving the needs of our congregation during these trying times.
As I said, stewardship encompasses giving of your time, talents and money. This campaign is focused on meeting the financial needs of our great church. I ask that you prayerfully consider the role you need to play in order for our church to continue its ministries. If you have never pledged, please consider doing so. And, if you already pledge, please consider increasing the amount. If we would all just give up eating out one night a week or, in my case, going to Elliano’s one less time per week and add that amount to our pledge, it could make a HUGE difference. Let’s meet this challenge head on and PAY, PLAY, AND PRAY OUR PART!

Stewardship date to remember (November 8th):
Pick up your goodie bag when you drop off your pledge card.
Canned Food Drive - There will be a bin located in the Fellowship Hall on your way into the Sanctuary.
If you are not able to make it to church on November 8th, we will have a pledge card drop off event from 12PM to 1PM on Tuesday, November 10th. In the event of rain on November 10, we will be set up at the front of church. Everyone who turns in a pledge card will get a goody bag as a “thank you” from the Stewardship Committee.
