By Matt Swingler - Chair of Stewardship
Back in November, I provided an initial update on behalf of the Stewardship Committee to share Calvary's progress toward achieving the 2019 stewardship campaign goals. The yearly campaign plays a significant role in establishing the operational ministry budget which includes funding for ministry programs, facility needs, outreach initiatives, and congregational care.
Here we are one month later and rapidly approaching the start of a new year. While we continue to see the totals increase week over week, the number of pledges coming in has slowed in recent weeks. As a result, we still have a little bit of work to do to hit our target goals in order to position Calvary to continue its ministry and mission in the coming year.
Stewardship campaign results thru December 5, 2018.
$1,041,487 in pledges target = $1,400,000
19 new pledgers target = 30
93 increased pledge amounts vs. prior year target = 150
218 total pledges
For those individuals that haven't pledged yet, but still intend to do so, please visit the stewardship page on the Calvary website to learn more.
May the spirit of Christmas bring you peace and joy as you celebrate Christ's birth this holiday season!
