SAVE THE DATE SUNDAY, OCTOBER 20th

 

One of the most popular events for church members and guests in the past few years has been our stewardship luncheon at AVS Banquet Center. This year the luncheon will be Sunday, October 20th, with buffet and program 12:00-2:00. The buffet line will open at 11:30 for those who arrive early.

Members with email addresses will receive an email “Evite” invitation to the luncheon. Evite will provide details of the luncheon and allow our members and guests to immediately inform us at to whether or not the can attend.  

 You will also receive an invitation letter in the mail with a Reservation Card that can be put in the offering plate or left in the church office. The church bulletins will also contain Reservation Cards. Please indicate either “Yes” you will attend or “No” you will not attend. Duplicate reservations are not a problem. You will only be counted once.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Pledge?

A pledge is not a gift made today. Rather, a pledge is your promise to provide a certain amount of financial support to the work of Christ’s church in the year ahead. Each fall, members are asked to complete a pledge card for the year ahead, so the finance committee  can plan for the coming year’s budget. We understand that things change, so a pledge is never a commitment, rather a guideline for us as we plan the coming year.

 

Why Should I Give?

FUMC asks for our pledge now, so that our leadership can plan the program life of the church for the year ahead, and do so with a balanced budget. Making an annual stewardship pledge is a commitment of your financial support for the coming year. You may fulfill your pledge on any schedule that meets your needs – weekly, monthly, quarterly or in one lump sum.

The vitality of our church depends on your ongoing, committed support. This support includes your financial commitment, participation in worship and other parish activities, including the offering of your time and talent.

A pledge lets you plan your charitable giving for the year ahead, makes tax accounting easier, and allows us to fulfill our mission sharing the love of Jesus Christ.
