cheerful (joyful) giver! II Corinthians 9:7
Cornerstone United Methodist Church is in the midst of our Stewardship Campaign for 2016. Since Cornerstone UMC is a newly merged church from the former Wesley and Albright UM Churches, we have no traditions of giving, stewardship or pledging. It’s new to all of us and a blank slate! What we do as a church and as individuals this month will set the tone for the coming years of our new church.
The Finance Team, under the leadership of Mark Stenson, the Leadership team, under the leadership of Connie Smisek, and I, as your new pastor, are boldly asking every member and every regular attendee at
Cornerstone to pray about making a financial pledge to our church for 2016. The leadership of your church boldly ask for your financial participation in our Stewardship Campaign because:
- We are committed to continue our excellent ministries of worship, music, and small groups reaching out to all generations, young and old;
- God has blessed us with people, leadership, and the financial resources to boldly move forward as a church and to make an even greater impact on our community;
- We have a clear vision from the heart of God to impact our community by proclaiming the gospel message to the un-churched and the de-churched (those who have walked away from the church) of all ages and building disciples for the transformation of our world;
- We are committed to boldly reach out to younger generations, who have often been disconnected from the church, by launching a second worship service sometime in 2016 targeted at younger people.
God is at work at Cornerstone UMC. He wants YOU to be a part of this exciting transformational ministry. Join us and become a joyful giver and make a financial pledge for 2016 (please turn your pledge card into the church office by December 1), and make a commitment to become a World Transformer by investing your time, talents, and treasures in the ministries of Cornerstone UMC.
Peace & Joy!
