Stewardship 2023

STEWARDSHIP APPEAL 2023

And I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” Then I said,

“Here I am! Send me.”

Isaiah 6:8

 Please reflect on the blessings God has given you and the many times that you have called on the Lord for assistance and God has responded, “Here I Am.”  We, as a church community, now call upon each of you individually to lift up our church by responding “Here I Am” to our Stewardship Appeal with your financial commitment to will enable Peace Lutheran to continue to offer spiritual support to all our members, and to ensure that our church building can continue to provide protection to all within its walls.

 

Questions and Answers

WHY SHOULD I CONTRIBUTE TO PEACE LUTHERAN CHURCH?

As a member of Peace, we know that you value being part of our church and furthering its many ministries. Decisions regarding your finances should reflect those values.

Your financial support enables Peace Lutheran to respond to the spiritual needs of our members through worship services, bible study, baptism, vacation bible school, Sunday school, weddings, funerals, grief support, youth projects, and so many more ways.

WHY SHOULD I FILL I OUT AND SEND IN A GIVING INTENTIONS CARD?

As a practical matter, the giving intentions cards are critical to our ability to plan how we can serve the congregation. As a more spiritual matter, it is an opportunity for you to reflect on your values and blessings, and to remember the times when you have called out in need, and God has responded “Here I am.” Your pledge is an active manifestation of your beliefs and represents an affirmative response of “Here I am, Lord” when called into partnership with the church to advance the work of Jesus.

WHAT IF I CANNOT AFFORD MUCH?

Everyone is welcome at our services and to participate in worship, sacraments, and church functions, regardless of their financial support of those activities and regardless of their level of contribution. We understand that circumstances enable some to contribute more than others. But we also firmly believe that everyone has the means to make a fiscal pledge at some level. We hope that everyone wants to participate and understands that their support is vital to our goals. Please consider pledging an amount that is a percentage of your income as a way of matching your giving to your resources. It is meaningful both to you and to us if you offer up a commitment of any kind.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I CAN’T MEET MY PLEDGE?

Nothing. We ask that you make every effort to fulfill your pledge. We hope that your income remains stable to allow you to do so. But we also understand that unforeseen events may occur that make it impossible. That’s OK. You will always be welcome in our church. We also welcome and encourage reciprocal flexibility when unexpected financial prosperity comes your way and enables greater giving. Please consider sharing that blessing by increasing your giving above your pledged amount or making a one-time extra gift if you receive an extra benefit.

HOW DO I RESPOND “HERE I AM, LORD!” WITH MY COMMITMENT?

To respond, “Here I am, Lord! I come to do your will,” please fill out the giving intention card that you received in the mail, or use one available at the church, and drop it into the offering plate or mail it back to the church on or before Commitment Weekend, May 6-7. Or fill out our online form below.  We are so very grateful for all the responses that we receive.  THANK YOU!!!
