Our congregation is very blessed. This community is loving, caring and compassionate – both within Mount Calvary as well as locally and globally. As a congregation, we gather to worship to deepen our faith, and to be encouraged to serve others.
As we embark on our Stewardship season for the coming year, we recognize the incredible work we already do, and ask ourselves, ‘how much more can we do as a Congregation if provided the opportunity’?
What: Our stewardship team and council have identified three key areas where we can stretch to answer God’s call:
1) Revitalizing Partnerships,
2) Sustaining Excellence in Ministry, and
3) Caring for our Facilities
How: We ask you to join in our effort to answer more of what God is calling us to do. Our Goal for the coming year in order to answer God’s call is to increase annual giving (over prior year levels) by $70,000. We can achieve this Goal not by significant increases from one or two families, but rather by smaller increases from nearly all families, as well as even small levels of new intended giving by those individuals and families who are not yet giving. As a group we can achieve even more of what God calls us to do!
When: Statement of Intent cards will be mailed to members’ homes in early November. When received, please give thoughtful and careful consideration to how much more we can do as a Congregation and consider what is being asked. Please refer to the table on Current Weekly Giving among current members and consider where giving levels will be (both in terms of dollars, and number of givers) to achieve our Congregational Goal. We ask that you bring your completed Statement of Intent cards to church on Appeal Sunday, which is November 17. We will be celebrating the results of our Goal on Sunday, December 1.
We appreciate your generosity and your consideration of this exciting challenge. What will GOD do THROUGH YOU?
