Make Your 2019 Pledge

We hope you received the postcard in the mail kicking off this season of making a difference through your financial commitment to the church in 2019. We share it again here, in case you missed it. Perhaps you wonder how we picked these folks to be in the photo, illustrating the works we do in the world. Truth be told, we “grabbed” them on a typically busy Sunday morning and said, “Come be in a photo!” There is, to be sure, a spiritual soundness to the randomness: We could have grabbed most anyone and they, too, would have illustrated how, together, we make a difference. In the photo at left are Reagan Oglesbee and her two kids. She has taught children’s Sunday School. The three of them have visited a nursing home to spread a little sunshine. In the middle is Charles Lloyd, He makes a difference by ushering on Sunday mornings. He also helps serve the homeless through Room In The Inn, and more. At right are Jennie and Ry Winston. Members here for years, their family has made a difference through Scouts, Bible study, hosting visitations after funerals and more. The beautiful thing is that we could have “grabbed” six others at random and the story would have been the same. Nearly all of us make a difference. Look in the mail soon for your packet of material on how to make a difference financially, including an Estimate of Giving card to support the 2019 church operating budget and Jubilee Plus! outreach fund.
