Calvary UMC 2018 Stewardship Campaign
September 14, 2017
Dear Fellow Disciples of Christ,
Praise God! We give thanks for 115 years of ministry as the congregation of Calvary United Methodist Church. Thank you for your prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. These are important in our walk as obedient people of faith. You make Calvary a nurturing church that fosters the Holy Spirit’s warming of hearts everywhere. Just as we were boldly organized in 1902, we continue boldly today spreading the love and gospel of Jesus Christ in our local community, our region, and the world.
As a congregation, we are working to deepen our personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Collective worship, small groups, fellowship groups, Sunday school classes and family programs encourage us to draw closer to each other and to God. We worship together, support each other, and share in the unending blessings that God bestows on us.
Much has changed in 115 years, but God’s providence and protection is unwavering, and our mission remains the same: to welcome and serve in the spirit of the Living Christ. Your support allows us to change lives as we continue building a blessed community. Calvary provides the most significant arena for disciple making. With God’s help, may we continue in the example of our congregation’s visionary pioneers, to trust, obey, and follow the urging of the Holy Spirit, and step out in faithful fulfillment of our vows.
The theme for this year’s campaign is “Building a Blessed Community”. Our goal is to increase 2017 estimated giving by at least 5%. Please pray about how you will respond to God’s call to generosity for 2018. Our stewardship campaign will culminate on Sunday, October 15, 2017 at both worship services, where you will be able to fill out and place your 2018 commitment card on the altar.
On behalf of Calvary United Methodist Church, your Stewardship Committee thanks you for your prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.
