The Stewardship Team would like to thank you for Answering the Call of Love! We are wrapping up our Stewardship Campaign, Foothills’ annual fundraising drive. And once again, you’ve come through for a successful campaign. The most exciting news is that we have surpassed 400 pledge units for the first time in our church’s history! We have 414 households making financial commitments for the support of our church and our work in the community and beyond. Thank You! This includes 49 new pledge units, which is up from last year’s 39. Thank You, New Folks! And our total so far … drum roll, please… is $659,874! This is an increase of 7% – very exciting – and that amount will rise throughout the year.
Your financial commitments range from $20 a year to $20,000 a year! WOW! Our average pledge is about $1,600. Our new pledgers averaged $791. 336 of our pledge units are Members; 78 are Friends.
You should have received a letter in the mail last week confirming what you indicated your financial commitment is. If you didn’t respond to our initial request, we kept your amount the same as last year, as has been our policy the last several years. Please take a look at it.
For those of you who are data nerds, we will be crunching the numbers further in the next few months, and more statistical information will be available. We are encouraged by the trends we’re seeing. Thank you for your generosity! I hope you feel, like I do, that being a part of the culture of abundance here at Foothills feels good. Together, we are truly making a difference for our congregation and our community. Thanks again for Answering the Call of Love.
