Stewardship

2020 Stewardship Campaign

Proverbs tells us to honor God with the first fruits of our produce. James tells us we are justified by our works, and not faith alone. This year, we ask that you consider these messages and commit to supporting the good works of this church: in worship, in mission, in Christian formation, and in fellowship and community. Pray about what proportion of your first fruits you can share. Look at your proportion from last year and raise it this year, as you are able, to support both increased costs and new works. Consider building your pledges each year towards a tithe, 10% of your income.

You can make a pledge by clicking on the button below. Your pledge is confidential.

What Is Stewardship?

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.

We encourage you to contact the Stewardship Committee, led by Tim Shaw and Bob Wood, at [email protected] or to contact Pastor Larry Hayward if you have any questions.

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.
