On October 30, the congregation was told by Allan Hunt, Stewardship Chair and Assistant Treasurer, that there was a need for a short Supplemental Pledge Campaign. The budget approved for the fiscal year that started on July 1st was $20,000 short of the projected funds needed for the church’s budget year. Besides that $20,000, the church needed $30,000 to restore the Reserve Fund that was used to balance last fiscal year’s budget, and deal with contingencies this fiscal year. Some members were able to put up $25,000 to match pledges of others, to encourage others to help reach the requested pledge total of $50,000, by November 10.
During the worship service on Sunday, November 13, Rev. Rachel was able to announce that the pledge totals, with the matches, exceeded our goal of $50,000! The total as of Monday, Nov. 14 is now $52,711, thanks to all of you who were able to increase your pledges for the fiscal year that ends June 30, 2017. Also, thanks to everyone for your support of People’s Church, in all the different ways that you continue to do so!
Sue Glenn, Treasurer
