Thank you for all that you have done to support Good Shepherd – through contributions of your time, talent and treasure. Now, I am personally asking you to participate in Good Shepherd’s Stewardship campaign – “Ready to Share” - by prayerfully considering and submitting your financial pledge for the coming year. We have made your response very easy for 2017. Please read on.
As a congregation and as individual members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd, we are all called upon “…. to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and
ready to share
….” (1 Timothy 6:18 RSV)." Good Shepherd has a long history of being an active community with a strong tradition of advancing our missions and ministries.
While we have been addressing several challenges as a congregation, we can’t lose sight of the fact that we are still called to mission and have so much more to do. To realize our goals, we must all be
ready to share
This year we are again conducting a “green” and cost and environmentally sensitive Stewardship campaign. We have set up an electronic pledge site that you can use in order to submit your pledge, which will come back to me as chair of Stewardship. We host it through the same Lutheran-endorsed company that provides us with Simply Giving. Clicking on the button below will take you to Good Shepherd’s secure and confidential electronic pledge site.
As you pledge you will be asked to create a profile you may use in future campaigns. This is an optional step, but we encourage you to use this profile to allow Good Shepherd to receive your offerings directly, through Simply Giving. You may even make your fulfillment automatic using either a credit card or bank account. This is important: When making your pledge, please enter the full annual amount of your pledge for each fund and the system will calculate your correct weekly, monthly, etc. gift depending on your wishes. These are all your choices.
