Pledges are an estimate of how much you plan to contribute to the church during the year in order for a realistic financial budget to be developed.
What is a pledge?
A pledge is an estimate of how much money you plan to give during the year. It is a promise to give - not a binding contract. Situations and life circumstances can change - and pledges may be adjusted at any time during the year.
Your pledge makes it possible for us to create a realistic budget for our staffings, ministries, programs and outreach for the coming year. Pledging is the primary basis for what we can accomplish as a church. Pledging is not just the basis of our budget, it is also the spiritual discipline that provides a tangible way for you to grow in your faith by sharing the blessings God has given you.
How much should I pledge?
Just as everyone has a different financial situation, the amount of your pledge is an individual decision and will be unique. Your pledge should reflect your own life circumstances and sense of commitment to your faith and the church.
How do I pledge?
You may pledge by completing a pledge card or filling out the form on our website. On the pledge form, indicate the amount of your pledge on a weekly, monthly, quarterly or annual basis - whatever frequency works best for you.
If you have any questions about pledging please contact Tonya Lyon, Director of Finance, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
