To have the inspiring church all of us expect next year will take about $700,000! Every year we must raise nearly 70% of that in pledges. Every other income source, rentals, investments, plate offering, special events & offerings pale by comparison. So yes, your pledge is vital – every single one. Community Sunday, February 22, when we shall all make our commitments, is fast approaching so please start thinking about the amount. To help with that look for an article on Fair Share in ENews next week.
