Stewardship Campaign Set to Begin on Sunday, October 27
The Stewardship Committee invites all of us at Hope United Church of Christ to be a part of our annual fall campaign that focuses our attention toward our financial goals in 2020. But stewardship is not a seasonal duty or responsibility, it is a full-time privilege that we have as part of our Christian discipleship and as part of our accountability to one another as Hope UCC.
We take our financial health seriously here at Hope UCC. Ongoing good financial practices have kept our expenses reasonable and we have a staff team, both paid and volunteer, that works effectively. We supported missional work for our local schools, for our local seniors and our local food pantry. We are a Five-for-Five Church, supporting the five special offerings of the United Church of Christ. Thank you to everyone who has made these incredible achievements possible!
Now is the time not only to celebrate these incredible achievements but to push ourselves toward what our future can be. Therefore during our campaign we will be taking a look at how we given our time, talent and treasure through these three important ways:
Look What We Have Done: Honoring Our 55 Year History
Look What We Are Doing: Celebrating Our Mission and Ministry Happening Now
Look What We Can Do: Imagining Our Future
Each of these three important aspects of who we have been, who we are and who we want to become is our call to stewardship and helps us to support the missions and ministries that make a difference as we promise to practice faithful stewardship through the programs, goals and aspirations of our church.
Plan now to be a part of these special services. Plan now how you can be a part of our continued goals for financial health. Plan now to answer the call to be a steward of the gifts you have been given.
