This year’s annual pledge campaign wraps up on November 15 when pledges will be presented and dedicated during worship. After worship, we will have a festive coffee hour at which we will give away some door prizes! Yes, that’s a blatant attempt to increase attendance on Pledge Sunday, but the Stewardship Committee thought, “why not give it a try?”
You should be getting a letter from the church treasurer about the same time as this edition of The Bell. A letter from Pastor Jeff with a pledge form will follow, arriving sometime around November 9.
You can also pledge online. Go to the church’s website, www.nilesdiscoverychurch.org. Hover your mouse over the donate button at the top of the screen and select “Make a Pledge.” Use the form on that page to pledge or print a pledge form from the option at the bottom of that screen.
The theme, “welcome. grow. serve.” comes out of the congregation’s slogan and mission and purpose statements in our bylaws. The simple fact of the matter is that your pledges support our church’s ability to welcome people into a relationship with God, to nurture our growth in those relationships, and to be empowered to serve our neighbors. Thank you for your support!
