Living Generously
Our annual Stewardship campaign, Living Generously, officially concluded last Sunday on All Saints Day.  However, many pledge cards are still outstanding.  Please bring your pledge card to Church this Sunday and place it in the offering plate, mail it to the Church today, or simply use our easy on-line pledge form to make your pledge.

Faith is a journey we make together, not a solo expedition. Our annual giving campaign is a time to reflect on the practice of intentional giving so that we live into the generous and abundant life God is calling us to live.
