Stewardship is the expression of our congregation’s values and priorities, coupled with our commitment to joining God’s action in the world. God calls us to be responsible stewards of our time, talents and financial resources, all of which are critical to the worship, education, mission and fellowship at Westminster.
During our annual stewardship campaign, we call upon the members of the Westminster congregation to pledge a portion of their financial resources so that we may efficiently and responsibly plan and budget for the church’s needs, both current and future.
These pledges enable Westminster to continue as the welcoming, nurturing and spiritual church home that it has become by
- Attracting a talented and dedicated staff that is committed to the special needs of our congregation’s children, young adults, singles, families and seniors.
- Supporting Westminster’s numerous mission projects that make such a positive impact on our local community, our nation and around the globe.
- Providing for the delivery of beautiful music programs during worship and other special services.
- Contributing to the invaluable Christian education programs and wonderful facilities that are used by the congregation and local community.
The stewardship campaign is intended to raise enough pledges to fund our annual operating budget. Through our Planned Giving Program, the Westminster Foundation is intended to complement the operating budget by providing the church with funding to meet additional long-term needs.
Thank you to those who pledged during our 2017 Stewardship campaign. Our stewardship theme was “Share Abundantly.” Our church community shares its rich blessings in ways that meet the needs of those in our congregation, as well as in our local community, nation, and world. Your pledge has helped us meet this year’s budget goal, which includes fully funding our new position of Associate Pastor for Youth and Young Adults as well as ensuring the growth and continued success of our mission programs here in Alexandria, on the Spirit Lake Indian Reservation in North Dakota, and at the orphanage in Moi’s Bridge, Kenya.
The stewardship campaign has never been just about reaching a financial goal, however. Our hope and prayer is that, through your pledge, you find new ways to share abundantly, and through that act of sharing deepen your relationship with Christ and your connection to our church.
If you would still like to submit a pledge for 2017, please fill out the 2017 Pledge Form. Your pledge is confidential.
