2023 Annual Stewardship — Come together: change, grow, thrive
Pledge cards for 2023 are available in the office at church.
Annual pledges support everything we do at Church of the Resurrection, and your pledge commitments give us a financial foundation upon which to develop our programs and our budget. If you would like to make an annual pledge, please contact the church office to receive a pledge card, or you can make your pledge online here. What is Pledging All About?
First Time Pledger?
Are you new to Church of the Resurrection? No matter how you found us, we are so glad that you are here! One amazing thing about this church is that the majority of what we do as a community is made possible by your financial support. A “pledge” is a financial promise you make to the church for the coming calendar year. Most importantly, pledging is a spiritual practice of generosity and a tangible way of giving thanks to God.
Thank you for your trust and generosity in continuing to say “yes” to God and to Church of the Resurrection. We are grateful that you honor the importance of giving back a portion of the gifts that God has given to you. By leading our parish in this way, your financial support has a direct impact on the ministry we can live out together. Thank you for your consistent pledging. Our community needs your support now more than ever. How may God be calling you to grow in your practice of generosity this year?
Consistent givers are members or regular visitors who contribute financially to the life and work of Church of the Resurrection, but do not submit a pledge card. If you are already giving consistently, know that we greatly appreciate your support! We invite you to consider making a pledge for 2022, so that we may better plan the church’s budget. Your pledge will enable Church of the Resurrection to grow ministries, expand our outreach efforts, and dream big together.
Resurrection by the Numbers
Last year we made huge strides towards achieving a balanced budget, thanks to the generosity of this community. While we are not quite there yet, we are making excellent progress even with high inflation increasing our cost to operate the church. We ask you to dig deep and prayerfully consider increasing your giving again this year. If we all do this, together we can ensure a sustainable and thriving future for our congregation.
