Stewardship season is underway at Palmer! If you have already returned your pledge for 2016, we thank you! As of Friday, Nov. 13 we have received 235 pledges for a total of $1,242,199 (average household pledge of $5,286). While we give thanks for this generosity and support, we also recognize that we are still far from our target of $1,850,000. We need your support to do the many good things we all love and care about in our faith community—from supporting our ministries to maintaining our buildings to paying our incredible staff.
If you have not had a chance to prayerfully consider your 2016 pledge, please take a moment to do that this week. You can mail your completed pledge form to the attention of our financial manager, Tom Matchett, at the church office. You can also send that information to him via email at email@example.com or a confidential voicemail at 713-529-6196 (extension 111).
If you would like to have the opportunity to get to know our Rector—The Rev. Neil Alan Willard, better—there is an ongoing opportunity to make a reservation for lunch with him at the Church together will a small group of other parishioners and, occasionally, other staff members. Please contact the church office and let them know you are interested.
We will have a Stewardship Forum hosted by chairpersons Trent Williams and Ellee de Groot as well as members of the Finance Committee on Wednesday evening, December 9 and Sunday morning, December 13 to review the proposed 2016 budget and our progress towards meeting that budget. More details to come. Let’s close the gap before this date! Send in your pledge now! Thank you.
