Dear Members and Friends,
These are exciting times in the life of Union Congregational Church. Our Building for Faith in Action Capital Campaign will strengthen our facility for effective ministry long into the future, just as our forebears in the faith did almost one hundred years ago.
We are now at the point of inviting the whole congregation to make a pledge to the capital campaign which can be fulfilled over the course of the next three years. What does this mean? Each gift will be unique to each person’s circumstance. Please familiarize yourself with the campaign and prayerfully consider your gift.
Sometimes, people find the frameworks below to be helpful:
- Gifting from accumulated assets could mean making a commitment more generous than what could be possible through your cash flow (and can also realize tax benefits not otherwise possible).
- Others might match their regular giving for three years and give the match to the capital campaign.
- Others might decide to give a full 10% tithe to the church for three years and designate the increase to the capital campaign.
I invite you to pray about your gift. As you reflect on what your gift will be, contemplate God’s blessings in your life, what a blessing Union has been in our community, and how vitally important Union’s prophetic, inclusive ministry will be to future generations.
Take a look at our Building for Faith in Action Capital Campaign brochure to find an overview of the proposed projects, a commitment form, and some information about how certain financial instruments may be utilized for the campaign. We ask that you complete the commitment form, enclose it in the envelope, and bring it to worship on Commitment Sunday, June 11. If you cannot be present that day, or if you wish to make an early commitment, feel free to mail your form ahead of time. Call the church office if you have questions (920) 437-9266.
Grace and Peace,
Rev. Bridget Flad Daniels
