Giving & Receiving:
In-Giving Sunday is December 8 th !

By now, you should’ve received the letter inviting you to pledge your support – along with a pledge sheet showing the many ways you can express and fulfill your gift – for the 2020 Planting Seeds Giving & Receiving campaign.

Sunday, December 8 th is our In-Giving Sunday, and we’re hoping for record-breaking attendance at both services to demonstrate our congregation’s commitment to the mission and vision of Grace St. Paul’s.

Even if you have already turned in your pledge sheet before you show on that day, write your name and pledge amount on a pledge sheet (writing “already pledged” or “duplicate”
on the form if you’ve already submitted your pledge), and place it in the offering.

Let’s make the plates overflow as a symbolic gesture of how great our harvest will be!
