2022 Pledge Campaign: We Are
As we all know far too well, 2021 has been a deeply challenging year. The pandemic has changed who we are and how we do church. It has been tough, but our church has faced tough times before, and we always emerge stronger and more resilient. We have also grown in ways we couldn’t have imagined before! As we begin to regather in person, we also celebrate our vibrant online worshiping community and how online ministry allows us to serve those beyond our local neighborhood in new and exciting ways. God is still speaking!
The creativity and grit that our church has shown in 2021 reassures us that we’re up to the challenges ahead. We are resilient. We are responding to God’s call. We are growing in Christ’s love. We are expanding our circle of welcome. WE ARE a living church. WE ARE growing together. WE ARE God’s story unfolding.
This year, as we look ahead to 2022 we commit to strengthening our church, our faith, and our resolve to create a more just, equitable, and peaceful world.
What is your vision for the future community that our church will become? As we explore our 2022 pledge theme, we invite you to finish the sentence “We are…” and to consider prayerfully what type of financial pledge you can make to support the church.
