Update on Stewardship

2017 Stewardship

Dear Friends:

I want to share our progress toward our annual stewardship goal of $1,200,000. Thus far we have 227 pledges for $994,000.  Last year we operated on 264 pledges for $1,021,000. If our ministries are funded at last year’s levels for 2017, without additional revenue, we are facing a $63,000 shortfall.  The costs driving our shortfall are primarily increases in insurance costs for facilities and staff .

In 2011, we faced this same budget challenge, and asked families to think about giving an additional $10 per week ($40 a month, or $560 a year) to All Saints.  Eighty families agreed to help, and we raised $45,000, which managed our shortfall that year.  The “10/40” campaign reminded us again how every gift, big or small, is necessary and vital.

How can you help?

Please consider pledging $10 per week/ $40 per month, or if you currently pledge, adding that amount to your existing pledge. If you have not pledged before, please prayerfully consider doing so.

Once again, we thank you for your faithful support.  Our life together is about loving and serving in God’s name.  Please continue to pray that all we offer at All Saints will be to the glory of God in Christ our Lord.

Blessings, Glenda+
