Stewardship means responsible caring – for our congregation and for each other. Our Stewardship team focuses on community-building and on making sure we have the financial resources we need. We depend almost entirely on the generosity of our congregation for funding. We ask all members and friends to make annual financial commitments. Weekly plate collections also make a difference. At least once a month, we allocate all or a portion of the offering to an organization or cause in the greater community. And we sell supermarket gift cards, which you can use for the full value you pay for them at three local markets. The Society receives a percentage of the value of each card.
The Stewardship Committee has committed to organizing annual Gatherings of The Society in people’s homes. These gatherings are a way for members and friends of the Society to meet over food in a more informal setting and discuss issues pertinent to the Society. We have partnered with other committees each time with a different focus on the discussion at hand.
Annual Stewardship Giving Campaign
We depend almost entirely upon the generosity of our congregation for funding. Pledges by members and friends during the annual stewardship campaign or upon making a commitment to the Society are the major source of our support.
The Stewardship campaign for 2016 - 2017 starts on March 6, Stewardship Sunday. We hope you can join us!
