Strive for the Tithe!

Todd GoddardComment

Dearly beloved,

Are you experiencing the joy of living a tithing lifestyle? I am, and I invite you to join me. Tithing is an opportunity to increase faith and strengthen the church of Jesus Christ. 

Our Leadership team asked our Lay Leader, Jim Coleman, and our Financial Secretary, Ellie Kopp, and myself to develop a stewardship effort by the end of the 2018 year. We developed a campaign, identified stewardship values, brought focus to the joy of tithing, and established a timeline. Here are the highlights:


On November 25th and December 2nd, Jim and I spoke about the joy of tithing and this efforts during the announcements prior to worship. As per our timeline, over the next two Sundays - December 9th and December 16th, pledge cards will be distributed. Please make every effort to fill out your card and return it to Ellie by Sunday, December 16, 2018. We plan to make effort for 100% participation. We can do it!

Thank you for your thoughtful, prayerful participation and incredible generosity. 

God loves you, and so do I,

Pastor Todd
