GIVING “God loves it when the giver delights in the giving"-ll Corinthians 9:7
Annual Giving Through a Pledge All Christians are called to contribute a portion of their time, talent, and treasure toward the work of God’s Church. Here at Christ Church, we encourage support of God’s Church by becoming involved with one of our many ministries and by making an annual financial pledge. Pledging provides the critical funding for our operations and our outreach and our pledge allows our ministries to thrive. Pledging also reflects our prayerful response to God’s call to be good stewards of our material possessions – we acknowledge that all that we are and all that we have are gifts from God. Our 2018 Annual Giving Campaign in now underway and concludes on November 18, 2018 with our ingathering when we collect everyone’s pledge card. Timely pledging enables the Wardens and Vestry to craft a responsible budget for Christ Church, and we encourage all parishioners to respond. If you consider Christ Church your church, your pledge of regular support through our Annual Giving Campaign is an affirmation of your membership. We invite you to talk to us about a making pledge to Christ Church. Please call your Rector Karen 978.835.2572 or your wardens Nancy Achenbach 631-725-0042 or Suzanne McNear 631.725.0953.
