2020 Giving Goal

Your Gifts Matter

.
Our church’s long and deep commitment to thoughtful faith is such a treasure. Through innovative and generous conversations in The Loft, engaging and prophetic preaching in The Sanctuary, and rich education programs for children, youth and adults, our church takes faith seriously. We talk about things that matter, connecting our Christian faith to the world around us. Our commitment to reaching out in compassion to others is an inspiring witness. We are clear that our community includes people of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities, across racial and ethnic diversity and through all generations. This diversity is a gift that helps us see God more clearly.

As we celebrated our 90th anniversary this year, we were both inspired by the many stories of the faithful people who have gone before us, on whose shoulders we now stand. Because of their generosity and vision, we not only have an incredible community, but a fantastic facility and ongoing funding that supports it, through our endowment and land lease income. These provisions give us an incredible opportunity and significant responsibility: because we have received these gifts, we have the chance and the choice to keep doing more, boldly!
.
We believe that our church matters, and that it makes a difference–we both imagine you do, too, and that’s why you’ve been a part of this. We also believe that we have something to offer the community around us–that others are hungry for the kind of open-minded, compassionate community we have here.
.
We are writing to encourage you to join us in contributing to the work of the church in 2020. While it’s not required of those who give, your decision to set a giving goal helps us estimate contributions as we set our ministry budget for the new year. We also hope you might take this opportunity to consider whether this might be a moment when you are ready to step up in your giving in support of our ministries. Regardless of their size, every gift is important because of the commitment and generosity it expresses. We are called to do amazing things, and we invite you to invest in the ministry of our community.
