Commitment 2020 Cards
If you have not had an opportunity to turn in your Servant Commitment Card, you can still do so by placing it on the altar before or after one of our Sunday morning worship services, by mailing it to the church or bringing it by the church office. Additionally, everyone is welcome to serve whether you submit a commitment card or not. However, receiving this information helps to provide our ministry leaders a great way to plug you in.
f you have not had an opportunity to turn in your Financial Pledge, you still may do in one of the following ways. You may mail your card to the church, bring it by the church office, or place it on the altar before or after one of our Sunday morning worship services. We encourage you to submit these over the next couple of weeks, because this will provide helpful information for our Finance Team’s Budget Committee. The Budget Committee will be meeting within the next couple of weeks.
