As of the press deadline, church bookkeeper Cecilia Le reports that pledges received so far total $208,620. She also said that there are a half-dozen pledges that she suspected would renew at some level, and if they renew at 2018 levels, the pledge total will be around $232,000, up around 5% from last fall’s pledge total.
The Finance Committee is using the pledge total to draft a 2019 budget for the Cabinet to review, potentially revise, and present to the congregation for a vote (after further discussion and potential revision) at the congregation’s Financial Annual Meeting, held in late January or early February.
If you have not made a pledge and would like to do so, you can go to j.mp/ndcpledgefall2018 and fill out the online pledge form or scroll down and print a form. Or you can call the office and a form will be mailed to you.
