What can we do to meet the challenge and FLOURISH in Faith?

Raising $30,000 may sound like a difficult task , but lets take a look at how we can do this

The first $6000 will come from removing the new contingency line item.$6,000 Contingency

The other $24,000 is doable if we all make a commitment to achieve this goal

FIRST, unanimous vestry commitment Kate Galbavy *John BrennerHazel Kelly * Mary Ann OConnor * Amy DixonDebbie Cortale * Fred Horney * Allie VossJean Otte * Courtney Dee * Mike Lauro

Can we agree to forgo:One less coffee and a bagel a week?One bag of cookies?One less waffle cone at Hoffmans?One less take out fast food lunch????

SECOND, if each of our congregations households would make a commitment to raise their pledge by a minimum of $5.00 a week we could achieve our goal (for a family of 4 that is pennies a day!!!)

Isn't what our wonderful church means to each of us worth our making this pledge to help seed for the future and help our church to thrive ??????

THIRD, we invite you all to join with our wardens and vestry members in demonstrating your commitment to the challenge to "FLOURISH in Faith."
