Our 2019 Stewardship Campaign, “Hope Grows Here”, will officially kick off on Sunday, November 4th , with a special celebration we call “Commitment Sunday.” On this day we will celebrate the future of Good Shepherd by submitting our pledges for 2019 and uniting in fellowship after all three services. We plan to have a breakfast after the 7:45 am service, a light lunch after the 10 am service, and surprise treats after the 6 pm service.
If you cannot make Commitment Sunday please consider mailing in your pledge, bring it in a week early, or bring it a week late and place it in the collection plate.
As we mentioned previously, the Stewardship Committee has set a financial goal for 2019 for 175 pledges, with an average pledge of $2,500 per family/ individual for a pledge amount of $437,500. This compares with 164 pledges in 2018 for a total amount of $404,000.
Our 20 Ambassadors will be contacting each household about one week prior to Commitment Sunday to answer any questions and to make sure all our parishioners have received our mailed packet of information with a pledge card. Our ambassadors will also contact parishioners about 10 days after Commitment Sunday to answer any questions and follow-up.
We consider prayer to be a very important part of our stewardship program, and we have 12 parishioners on our Prayer Team praying for both Good Shepherd and our stewardship program. We plan to have detailed prayer guides available the week prior to Commitment Sunday, and we hope you will consider picking one up at our services on October 28th.
Your Stewardship Team will be wearing ribbons identifying them on their name tags, as well our Ambassadors and our Prayer Team. Feel free to ask them any questions, and if they can’t answer your question, the Stewardship team will get back with you. Thank you for your consideration and your support.
