Welcome to the Good Shepherd Stewardship Pages
Malachi 3:10: Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this, says the Lord Almighty, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.
Position to Thrive
One year ago, we adopted a mission strategy called “Getting in Position to Thrive.” We have made a lot of progress, focusing on six key areas of:
- Reach out to New People
- Connect our Adults to Groups
- Helping People find their Place
- Young Family & Youth Development
- Formalize our Caring Ministry Network
- Fully Fund the Mission
We have a dedicated Stewardship Committee working hard to ensure that Good Shepherd has sufficient financial resources and to keep the congregation informed in an upbeat fashion.
Submit Your Pledge for 2013
This year, we are focusing on giving back a portion of what God has first given us. Our budget for 2013 is $1,250,000, $100,000 less than 2012. While we reduced most budget groups, we actually increased our Congregational Benevolence, with the goal of becoming a tithing congregation to our community.
It is easy to submit your pledge online securely by clicking here and simply filling out the short form.
You may be asking yourself this question as you ponder your pledge for the coming year. Well, this past fall, we asked several of our members that same question, and we put together a video with their responses. They make it clear that every little bit you can give makes an impact, and we think that you will be amazed at the impact you will make on both others and yourself! So, please take a moment and watch the video here.
