2019 Stewardship CampaignThank you for your outpouring of generosity to our 2019 Stewardship campaign to bear fruit that will last. We are making progress in closing the gap between pledges for 2019 and our 2018 church budget. The average pledge has increased, but the number of pledges has lagged. As of January 10, we were about $108,000 behind the amount needed to fund last year's reduced budget, and $134,000 behind amounts pledged in 2016 and 2017. If you have not yet made your pledge, you may complete a pledge card that you will find in the pews and in the worship register and put it in the offering plate. You also may mail your pledge card to the church office (UPC, P.O. Box 509, Chapel Hill, N.C. 27514) or pledge online via our secure website at   upcch.org/stewardship . Please do so as soon as possible.
