Stewardship - As the congregation gets ready to approve the church budget for 2018, your stewardship pledge is still very much needed. For those who have made their promise for next year, thank you. For those still contemplating it, our stewardship needs never really end and your pledge card will always be welcome whenever it is received. Pledge cards are in the pews or one can be mailed to you. Offering envelopes are also available to anyone who would like a set. Please let David Wildes (422-3739) know if you have any questions.
