Pledge Cards
November 1, 2018
Thanks so much to all of you who have already submitted your pledge!  If you have not yet submitted a 2019 pledge, we hope you will and humbly ask that it be submitted by November 1st if possible.  Each and every pledge is very helpful as we continue Christ Church's ministry and mission of receiving God's grace and sharing it with one another and the world.  Pledge cards are available at the church, or if it's easier for you, you can also simply email your pledge amount to our bookkeeper, Amy Creasy.
