In this month of Thanksgiving, let’s take a moment to reflect on the wonderful gifts God has given us. In addition, let’s ask ourselves how should we respond to these gifts? As Christianity teaches us, we become stewards of the gifts God has given. Stewardship provides an opportunity for us to manage our gifts to make the church and the world more like the communities God wants them to be.

Did you know that your pledges and offerings provide all the funding for our church facilities, salaries, and expenses? Just as importantly, did you know that your pledges and resulting offerings help Mystic Congregational Church meet our mission of loving God and our neighbors? Every pledge, no matter what the amount, is important to our church and its mission. The Trustees rely on a committed level of revenue from us in their management of church affairs.

As members receive pledge materials in the mail this week, please prayerfully consider your pledge and complete the pledge card included in the mailing. On Sunday, November 18, pledge cards will be collected during worship services. Thank you for your generosity!

Your Stewardship Committee:
Barbara Heuer, Sue Skogerboe, Tod Schaefer, Bill Jackson & Frank Davis
