• Can’t I practice stewardship without pledging—by just putting money in the plate during the Sunday offering?

    Sure, but annual pledging is so helpful to us for maintaining operations, and pledges in the fall clarify how much money will be available to carry out the church’s mission for the year, and thereby helps us plan our budget. This is critical information for making careful, purposeful decisions about church activities, ministry and maintenance. And on a personal level, pledging helps to transform your giving into a spiritual practice; you make a commitment to God and to your church family, and fulfilling it becomes a regular practice just like attendance at worship, praying, or serving our broader faith community by volunteering your time.
