Stewardship Campaign—We hope you have made your 2018 pledge! If not, please help our lay leaders by sending in your pledge card by this Sunday. As the pledge mailing indicated, our 2018 budget calls for an 8% increase in pledge income, both to maintain the quality of our programming and to address the increasing number of repairs to our historic building. Thank You!
