Stewardship Weekly Update

Stewardship Weekly Update

The annual Stewardship campaign Growing the Dream is going strong to reach our optimistic goal that includes a budget for a quarter time minister. We still have a ways to go though and we need everyone to contribute. We need all pledges complete by March 24.

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. Our optimistic goal is $225,000.  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.

Our progress each week towards our goal is shared through the blue and white tree hanging outside Fellowship Hall and the Unichord. At the time of submission of this article we have 33 pledges turned in and we  have 30% of our goal!  That is $66609 pledged! 

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.
