Dear Members and Friends of Prince of Peace,
The apostle Paul writes, “Encourage one another and build up each other.” While we have been learning a lot of new ways to do that work this year, it’s the work that our church has been doing all along: encouraging one another within our congregation, building up the neighbors in our communities, strengthening our relationships with one another wherever we go. We have gathered and are telling some of those encouraging stories this month.
You are an important part of this work in all the ways you share your gifts. Today we are inviting you to invest in this ministry with your financial pledge so that we can continue to encourage one another and build up our community to share God’s love and grace. Please prayerfully consider making a personally meaningful pledge:
- If you are new to giving, what would it look like for you to commit to $5/week or $1/day?
- If you already give regularly to our shared ministry, what would it look like to stretch in a meaningful way, perhaps giving an additional 1% of your income? (A chart to determine that amount included with the pledge card letter.)
- If you already give 10% or more of your income, how can you stretch your giving in a new direction in the coming year?
Please return your pledge form by Saturday, October 24 addressed to our Financial Secretary. Please submit a form even if you are giving electronically or don’t use offering envelopes. We will celebrate together with a special virtual Oktoberfest on October 24 after our 5:00p.m. worship service. We hope you can join us!
Whatever your gift, together we are the body of Christ in this place, encouraging one another, reminding one another that God continues to be at work among us in this shared ministry!
Yours in encouragement,
The Rev. Paul Lutz, Pastor
