Make a Pledge
The active participation and generosity of our church family increases the potential for our church to spread the gospel of Christ. Because financial support is important to the mission of our church, our Session has created processes to encourage gift-giving, to receive gifts, and to use these gifts appropriately.
The Session is responsible for the creation of our annual budget, the operating budget. Annual stewardship gifts are used to support this budget. In the fall each year, members are encouraged to pledge their annual gift for the coming year. Pledges help the Session better plan the growth of our church programs because of the financial assurance created by these pledges.
Often members of our church family give additional gifts beyond their annual pledge. Some of these are memorials and honorariums. Others are given for use with a specific program of the church or are undesignated gifts which allow the Session the opportunity to apply the gift where most needed.
