Last year, we had remarkable success with our Person-to-Person campaign both in expanding the number of people supporting the church and increasing pledge income. Thank you to everyone who contributed as we learn what it means to be generous disciples!
On Sunday, January 26th, a Kitchen Table meeting was held after the 10 o’clock service that presented our aspirational budget for 2014-2015. Our aspirational budget will support the ministry and mission of the church for this fiscal year and reflects our goals based on your feedback.
During this year’s campaign, we invite everyone to attend one of a series of Cottage Meetings held in the month of March. Our Cottage Meetings will offer a further opportunity to discuss the needs of the church, as well as hopes and dreams for our community.
Over the following weeks, we’ll be discussing individual commitments needed from the congregation to support the Ministries and Mission of First Church. We’ll do that in worship, cottage meetings, through the mail, and e-mail. We’ll catch up with those out of town upon their return to Burlington.
We are striving for 100% participation in our campaign, and we ask for your faithful and generous commitment.
Please contact the Church Office (802-862-5010) to sign up for a Cottage Meeting date, or visit the Stewardship Table during coffee hour. We’ve added a Conference Call option this year. If you can’t attend a Cottage Meeting, please consider calling into one of these presentations.
Thank you for all you do to support the mission and ministry of our Church.
