Freely you have received, freely give. (Matthew 10:8)
As Christians, we are called to give back to God a portion of the gifts and blessings that God has given each of us. We call this Christian stewardship. Parishioners at Christ Church demonstrate their commitment to stewardship throughout the year, by giving generously of their time, talents and energy. During the Annual Stewardship Campaign, we ask them to reaffirm their commitment to Christ Church by giving of their treasure as well, in the form of a pledge for the coming year.
Pledges provide the financial foundation for our mission and ministries and the support for our clergy, staff, and facilities. The operating expenses for 2016 were $569,133, and the church relied on pledges and plate offerings for nearly 85% of that amount, and transfer from the endowment for about 10 percent, with gifts and facilities rentals responsible for the remainder. We welcome you to join us in achieving our goal this year. To make a pledge, you may download and submit a Pledge Card.
