Stewardship 2021

STEWARDSHIP APPEAL 2021

It is an opportunity for each of us, and all of us together, to reflect on the love God has for us and on our many blessings. We seek to discern how sharing our blessings imparts God’s love and brings us joy and gratitude.   We want to recover our pre-COVID levels of giving and provide an additional $10,000 for new Sunday School innovations.

 

Questions and Answers

How has God Been With Us This Past YEAR?

God has been together with us throughout the past challenging year in these and other ways!  We are very grateful!

We were able to put worship online,  reaching more people than ever

We quickly learned to be flexible and innovative in all our ministries

We supported our staff and all kinds of ministries at Peace

We supported local and world-wide efforts to further the gospel

We prayed with hope for all those in need in so many different ways

WHAT IS MY ROLE IN THIS APPEAL?

First, we ask you to reflect on and celebrate the many ways God has already blessed you with an ability to give! 

You already experience the joy of giving in your own families and among friends.  You know that feeling when you find the perfect gift. We ask you to expand that concept to a bigger picture – to how good it feels to give, to serve, and to share in our church community and beyond.

We also ask you to pray and consider what God is leading you to do next.

HOW CAN I HELP ACHIEVE OUR MINISTRY GOAL?

Consider how God is asking you to respond in faith by giving financially from the heart.

Pray about it. Talk with others. Reflect. For those who already tithe, we know you will continue!  For those who have not yet begun the habit, we would invite you to consider percentage giving.  Giving on a planned, percentage basis is a faithful way to follow God’s plan.  It also helps us consider our priorities in life, which is always a good thing. 

If percentage giving is not right for you, then pray and consider an increase to your current giving level (add 10%, for example.)

If you haven’t been giving at all or only occasionally, pray about your call to support this ministry.

What if I don't like making a financial commitment?

Even if you do not want to turn in a Giving Intentions Card, please fill it out for yourself.  Making a commitment of any kind is an act of faith; a way of responding and saying “yes” to the desire to experience The Joy of Giving!

HOW DO I RESPOND WITH MY COMMITMENT TO THIS APPEAL? 

Complete the Giving Intentions Card below or ask us to mail one to you or pick up a form at church.  We would ask that you complete your Giving Intentions Card on or before Commitment Weekend, May 1 & 2.
