ESTIMATED GIVING CARDS FOR 2023. Your commitment to our church’s ministry is much appreciated. For those of you who have not yet had a chance to fill out a card, we would be deeply grateful if you would consider doing so. It helps us to make estimates of what we can and/or cannot fund next year. Extra cards can be found on the glass cabinet in the lobby of the church’s sanctuary or by contacting the church office. You may mail them in or deposit them in the offering plate on Sunday mornings. As of January 9, 2023 we have collected 54 cards (representing 61% of our church’s 88 family member units) totaling a commitment of $149,826 for the General Fund and $18,329 for the Mission Fund. Our goal is for 100% of our church family to participate in our 2023 estimated giving campaign. We would be so very grateful for your help. Thank you! WE’VE BREACHED THE HALFWAY MARK! A LITTLE OVER HALF OF OUR CONGREGATION HAS SUBMITTED AN ESTIMATED GIVING CARD. IF YOU HAVEN’T SUBMITTED YOURS YET, WE’D BE SO GRATEFUL IF YOU WOULD CONSIDER DOING SO. THANKS!
