The UUCM Stewardship Campaign
We are in the midst of our two-year interim ministry and are looking forward to calling a settled minister later this year. In this time of transition, we dream of an even more dynamic, engaged congregation to spread the Unitarian Universalist (UU) message of love and social justice within our four walls and out into the world. You are making this exciting time happen, you are planting the seeds for UUCM’s future!
It is your commitment to UUCM which allows us to provide opportunities for spiritual and personal engagement through which we can support and serve one another and the wider community. It takes generous contributions of time, energy, and money to sustain and enhance our spiritual home at UUCM. None of this would be possible without your financial support each year.
Pledging is the indispensable foundation of the annual Church operations, as pledges represent about two thirds of church income. If you are able, maintaining or increasing your pledge over last year helps ensure that UUCM continues to thrive as our congregation evolves.
During this stewardship season, please reflect on what UUCM means to you, your family, your fellow congregants, and the community. Your pledge card will be sent in advance and also available at the Spring Revels on March 31 for you to fill out that day. Thank you for all you do for UUCM. We are so lucky to have you!
Our Stewardship Campaign for the next church year (July 2019 – June 2020) centers on our one-day Spring Revels on March 31, 2019. In advance of the Revels, you will receive a brochure and pledge form via US Mail. Here are some other important dates to remember:
- March 17 at noon – Stewardship Information Session (lunch will be provided) and
- March 19 at 7pm – Stewardship Information Session (dessert will be provided)
- March 31 – Stewardship Revels and Celebratory Brunch (provided by the Stewardship Committee)
In the fall of 2018, UUCM voted on an ambitious 5-year plan to support our new minister and dreams for the future. Every dollar over the amount of pledge income needed for the 5-year plan is less money we need to take from our endowment and more that will be there for the future.
Wondering how much to pledge? The UUA suggests giving a percentage of your income .
