Stewardship Sunday—Thank you to everyone who has made their 2019 pledge! For those who have not: please consider submitting it during Sunday’s offering or by using this online pledge card. As the pledge mailing indicated, our 2019 budget calls for a 4% increase in pledges, primarily due to this year’s larger COLA (2.8%) for our dedicated staff. If you’d prefer to fill out an online pledge card, please see last week’s Moderator’s Memo for the link. Questions? Please contact Stewardship Team Member Carol L. Rogers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
