2019 Stewardship Campaign: As we enter the season of Advent, we reflect on God's gift to us and how we live our gratitude and bear fruit that will last. We celebrate the commitment so many in the congregation have shown through your pledges. In order to create a budget that will not require us to draw from our savings but will allow us to fund all we did in 2017, we need an additional $300,000 in pledges. 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. You also may mail your pledge card to the church office (P.O. Box 509, Chapel Hill, NC 27514), or pledge online via our secure website at upcch.org/stewardship.
