Make Your Stewardship Pledge Today

Stewardship helps fill this church with prayers of thanks to God.  In this church, we are
surrounded by people who pledge their time, prayers, and money to provide Christian care to
others – to the hungry, the thirsty, and the stranger – to the naked, the sick, and the friendless.
We are surrounded by people who have discovered the great gift of God’s love and Christ’s
teachings: When we give of ourselves and our work, we get far more than we give – and far
more than we can ever repay for the gifts bestowed upon us. Thanks be to God. Pledge cards
can be found in the pew racks. You may bring your pledge forward or place it in the offering
plate during worship. Online pledging and giving can be set up by following this link. Give
 in response to God’s grace and call when making your pledge.

Lent 2019: Welcome Home

This Lent, our theme will be “Welcome Home”. We’ll preach a sermon series on the stories of
coming home in scripture, and our children’s programming will celebrate the joys of their church
home. Children are also invited to give thanks for their blessings at home through collecting
change for the One Great Hour of Sharing, which goes to Presbyterian missions around the
world. Our church is undergoing large transitions this year. Let’s take time during Lent to come
back to our church home – to celebrate our talents, strengthen our connections to fellow
members, and prepare our hearts for Christ’s grace.
