As of the press deadline for this edition of The Bell, the total of pledges received for 2016 was $213,000. This is the highest pledge total received in the history of Niles Discovery Church or its two predecessor congregations.
“This is a sign of the confidence our members have in our congregation’s future,” Pastor Brenda said. Pastor Jeff concurred: “It show the level of trust we have in each other and in the leadership of the church. I am deeply grateful.”
Giving by members and friends of the congregation underwrites the congregation’s ministry. The amount pledged helps the Finance Committee draft the annual budget, which is then voted on by the congregation (see article on page 1).
If you have not pledged, you still can. Mail your pledge in to the church office (attention Cecilia Le) or submit it online at http://j.mp/ndcpledge.
