My conscience clear and sweet, my words both true and kind.

Stewardship, the Church Budget, and the Annual Meeting - Our congregation will approve the 2023 church budget when we meet at our Annual Meeting this Sunday after worship. But this does not mean we are done with our financial planning for next year. In fact, we are just beginning. The budget is only a financial plan -- it needs to be funded with your donations to put it into action. Your stewardship pledge is still very much needed. For those who have made their pledge commitment for next year, thank you. For those still thinking about it, your pledge card will always be welcome whenever it is received. Pledge cards are available in the Sanctuary or one can be mailed to you. Offering envelopes are also available to anyone who would like a set. Perhaps they will help you budget and schedule your financial contribution. Please let David Wildes (422-3739) know of any questions or concerns,

and thank you for your continuing help and support.
