We got off to a strong start last Sunday with the launch of our Stewardship season.
Thirty-six households pledged a little over $70,000.00. The spirit of love and hope that pervaded both services was beautiful. At 10:30, our littlest children and those who needed a little physical assistance to come forward led the procession to the blessing of the pledges.
Of course, we have just begun. If you were not able to be in church last Sunday, we hope you will plan to come this coming week or drop off your pledge at the office.
Below, is a slightly reduced version of my sermon last Sunday. I have been encouraged by some who heard it to make it available to you. If you have not pledged, we especially hope you will read it before you present your card to the church.
It would be a healthy situation if we could go far beyond last year’s pledges of $95,000. I real stretch would look like about $125,000.
