Stewardship Campaign Set to Begin on Sunday, October 28
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 2019. 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 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 in our work to live into our motto: Hope Happens Here through our financial giving. Therefore during our campaign we will be taking a look at how we can show generosity through these three important ways:
Hope Happens Here: The Long Haul – General Fund Giving
Hope Happens Here: Building for the Future – Capital Campaign Giving
Hope Happens Here: For the Love of Hope – Legacy Fund Giving
Each of these three important aspects of our giving allows us to answer our call to stewardship and help 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 of financial health. Plan now to answer the call to be a steward of the gifts you have been given. Plan now to be a part of Hope Happens Here.
