A Different Kind of Stewardship Campaign – “Weaving Our Future Together”
Hello, fellow UUCC members and friends!
At the end of last week, I posted in our community Facebook group an interview with my son Theo, who is 5 years old, on what he loves about UUCC. From the mouth of babes comes some of the purest praises for our beloved community. He told us that his favorite things about coming to church were seeing Mr. Kevin (Kevin Fritsche, who regularly teaches the Potter class) and his friends in class. Most importantly he tells us that he loves everyone in the church, and he knows everyone loves him too.
I am so grateful we have such a dedicated group of volunteers who help our children grow from preschool where they learn about love, kindness, and community, through young adulthood where they learn to dismantle systems of oppression and use their voices to create a more just and loving world. Our pledges are necessary to support this great program and help develop our next generation of UUs into the leaders we will need tomorrow.
I am pleased to report that as of Feb. 20, our pledging total was $116,213, about 35% of our goal, with a little less than two weeks of our pledge drive remaining. The percentage increase from existing pledgers is just below the 7.4 percent bump that is our goal.
With this added support we will better fund our music program, become a teaching ministry to support an intern UU Minister, provide support to the work of our Sanctuary Team and Access and Inclusion Team, and kick off a new Adult RE program in the Fall – and more!
Our hope is that each and every one of our members and friends will join us in Weaving Our Future Together and make a financial pledge to help us realize our goals. It is only through the receipt of pledges that the church can plan its budget for the coming fiscal year that will begin July 1, 2018.
You can pledge by completing a pledge card and mailing it or dropping it off at the church, or you can securely submit an online pledge.
Our pledge drive closes March 4.
In spirit and service,
Co-Chair, Stewardship Team
