2018 Christ Church Ridgewood Stewardship Campaign: Living Generously

From the Stewardship Committee

We are so grateful for your faithful membership at Christ Church; your generosity truly sustains our ministry together.

Parishioners should by now have received an Annual Giving packet. You will find two forms to return – a blue pledge card for financial resources and a yellow time and talent form listing our various ministries. We hope that this year’s new time and talent form both inspires and invites you to share your gifts and time with our community and the broader community. In the spirit of living generously, we encourage you to branch out from your current volunteer positions and consider learning about a new ministry. Please check off as many ministries as you have interest and a coordinator will be in touch to provide information.

Campaign Update

Thank you to all who have renewed or made a new commitment in response to our annual giving drive in support of our Christ Church community for 2018.

If you have not yet submitted a pledge for 2018, we ask you to prayfully consider doing so now by submitting an online pledge.

Please help us reach our goal of 100% participation by submitting your pledge cards or online pledge as soon as possible.The Vestry and Finance committees are working hard to plan for Christ Church’s upcoming program year and your pledge of time, talent, and treasure is a vital part of this planning.

Please feel free to contact either Deanna Najork, or Trevor Thangalan, with any questions. Thank you again!
