Thanks to all our members and friends who donated last year. Your support helped us to enhance our music program and give our staff much deserved raises. This year, our goal is $450,000 and we ask you to pledge NOW, so that our board can present a realistic budget to the congregation in May.
This year, the theme of our drive is “Spreading Our Wings.” With your support, we have two funding priorities:
• First, will hire an intern minister, who will help across the congregation and further our mission to be a “teaching” congregations.
• Second, we will fully embrace sustainability across our congregations programs and operations. You will be hearing more about these priorities in the coming weeks.
Two BIG new things this year.
First, you can now pledge ONLINE. This SUPER SECURE site will both accept your pledge AND be the portal through which you will manage your payments. We hope this streamlines the process for you, for our accountant and office manager AND for future Stewardship chairs. Remember, our preferred method of payments is a direct debit or EFT.
Second, we have launched a new leadership giving society. All those who pledge a minimum of $2,000 per year for three years will be members of The Angell Society. Abby & Frederick Angell were lay leaders of our congregation when it was first starting. We honor them, and the current leaders who will help to ensure steady and sustainable finances of the UUCM.
Please make your pledge TODAY. You can do that by returning the purple pledge form that was mailed to you….OR you can pledge online. Please contact Mark and Nancy Felix if you have any questions or suggestions.
AND THANK YOU!
