How do I make a pledge to Grace Covenant?
During Fall stewardship campaign: The Stewardship Committee will mail you a letter and pledge card. You complete and return this card to the church by mail, offering plate, or the mailbox outside the office of Stewardship & Financial Administrator, Natalie Weaver. Additional pledge cards will be in the pews, narthex, and Natalie’s office.
At other times of the year, you can pick up a pledge card in the church office, or pledge online or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if I don’t want to pledge because I’m worried that I will fall behind on my pledge?
We ask that you make a prayerful goal and meet it to the best of your ability. We know that unexpected changes happen, which might mean you fall behind (or are able to exceed) your annual pledge. Your thoughtful pledge will help us to make a reasonable plan for the upcoming year. You can adjust your pledge up or down at any time by contacting Stewardship & Financial Administrator, Natalie Weaver.
What if I am only able to make a small financial contribution? Should I still make a gift?
Yes! All pledges of all amounts are a great gift to our faith community. There are many ways to support the life of Grace Covenant, and your financial gift is only one of those ways. Everyone has gifts to share that make our church healthier and stronger. Gifts of time, skill, participation and sharing are all needed for our journey together. All financial gifts are kept confidential. By making a pledge, no matter the size, it helps us to plan for the upcoming year.
Where does my money go?
At Grace Covenant, every penny goes directly to ministry. We use our financial resources to award grants to agencies doing social justice work, to provide building space for a wide variety of community groups, to fairly compensate an active and engaged staff, to offer opportunities for learning, growth, worship and connecting for everyone who comes through our doors. Your financial resources change lives. If you have any questions, members of our Finance Council are always happy to talk with you. You can also contact our Stewardship & Financial Administrator, Natalie Weaver or GCPC Treasurer, Joe Brumit.
