At the two services on Generosity Sunday (Oct. 19), we visibly demonstrated our congregation’s magnanimity by carrying our pledges down the aisle and placing them in the offering basket. We gathered to celebrate our financial support for the church’s work, including Sunday services, music, social justice programs, adult and children’s religious education, building maintenance and repair, and our wonderful ministers and staff.
If you’ve already submitted your 2015 pledge, thank you! If you haven't yet, you can do so by filling out a pledge card on Sunday or by going to our Generosity page. The Fair Share Guideline chart on that page can help you choose a comfortable giving level.
Why are pledges so important? Pledges allow the church to plan and establish a budget for the year. Nearly 80% of the budget for All Souls is supported by pledges. Each of us is called to make a pledge that is thoughtful and generous based on our financial situation and proportional to our income. Each and every pledge makes a difference. Pledges can be fulfilled in as many payments as you wish throughout the calendar year of Jan. 1 to Dec. 31 and can be paid in a variety of ways. A pledge can be adjusted up or down if circumstances change during the year.
Thank you all for your financial commitment to All Souls for 2015.
