Our annual pledge campaign is kicking off this month, and we invite you to join us as we look ahead to 2021 and commit to strengthening our church, our faith, and our resolve to create a more just, equitable, and peaceful world. As we know all too well, 2020 has been a year of deep suffering, fear, and isolation. We are in the midst of a global pandemic, a severe recession, and a deep reckoning with our nation’s history and legacy of racial terror. And just recently, we have seen climate fires that bring new threats and devastation. But, as in other difficult times, our church has been there for us and the wider community, creating space for us to worship, gather strength, and help each other. And, it has dared us to find our resolve and meet our world’s challenges head on, exclaiming: “We’re All In!”
Pledging to the church is one way to show that you’re all in when it comes to living out God’s call for peace, justice, and reconciling love. As with our services, our 2021 pledge campaign will be virtual this year, and it will coincide with the fall “call to action” worship series. In this campaign, we want to bring to life stories of giving, of being “all in”. To that end, we are looking to collect personal video and written testimonials from congregants that tell why you give and why you’re “all in.” What calls you to give? How do you see this act of giving as bringing forth God’s vision of love and justice for our church and our world?
If you are interested in submitting a video or written testimonial, please get in touch with Sven Peterson (moc.liamg@nosretepnevs) or Allison Hastings (moc.liamtoh@knosilla_srm). We would like to share videos on the following dates: October 11, 18, 25 and November 8 and 15.
Thank you for answering the call!
~ Your 2021 Stewardship Pledge Campaign Committee (Rachael Brackett, Allison Hastings, Sven Peterson, and Kyna Shilling)
