Stewardship Update

The annual Stewardship campaign kicked off last Sunday! Growing the Dream is our theme- and our optimistic goal is to get us to a part time minister. 

We will be updating you on our progress each week towards our goal through the blue and white tree hanging outside Fellowship Hall and the Unichord. At the time of submission of this article we are just getting started with pledges and we already have 8% towards our goal!  That is $17,600! 

This year we are facing a deficit. For our church to maintain current levels of functioning we need to raise $200,000 this year through our Stewardship campaign. That comes out to an average of $3175.00 per pledging unit. Everyone’s financial life looks different, if you can afford to give more you are supporting those who cannot contribute as much. We are all responsible for giving what we can.

To get to our goal of a quarter time minister at UUCE, we need to raise $225,000 this year through our stewardship campaign. We can do this! Our dream can be real and we can do it together with service, compassion, love, relationship and above all generosity.

Pledge and other revenue sources (rental, fundraising, donations) support our worship and music programs, our building upkeep and maintenance, our staff which includes our Administrator, Music Director, Childcare workers and Religious Education Coordinator, our religious education program, our community outreach, and our connections to Unitarian Universalism. Our budget reflects our mission and vision.

You will receive a letter with your previous pledge information or you can pledge online here: https://uuce.org/giving/stewardship/
