wreath-on-doorThe news on the Capital Campaign is good, so far. Initial pledges, along with some funding from the endowment, have nearly filled the $500,000 “thermometer” for the Elevator Fund.

But how are the pledges for our annual Stewardship Campaign, the support needed for regular operations in 2017?

As of Dec. 19, the amount pledged was $386,055. This is $5,000 short of the final figure from last year. The number of pledges is still a little below last year’s 167. If anyone needs a reminder to get his or her pledge in, let this be it. And thank you for your good stewardship.
