Draw the Circle Wide! 2017-18 Stewardship

Draw the Circle Wide logoOn Feb. 26, we began our sharing of meals and ideas during our cottage meals and making our financial pledges. If you have not signed up for a cottage dinner - call Lisa A. or contact the office for how to sign up for a dinner.

Our paper cottages will be displayed on the back wall of the sanctuary.   When each "cottage" member has turned in a pledge card, a lighted chalice will be placed in the cottage window to signify that all cottage members have pledged.

I love the kinship created by both the actual cottage dinners and the paper cottages themselves.  On the strength of our shared community, we take these risks (opportunities!) to draw our circles wider than we might normally - welcoming new people and going new places.  I love also the image of the lit chalice to signify completion of pledges.  It nicely symbolizes our "fire of commitment" when we take the opportunity to commit our financial resources to light up our beloved community.

The greatest (and potentially most rewarding) opportunity of all may be the one we create by drawing our circle wide enough to include those who are not currently in our community but who may need our help, attention, and steadfast commitment to the creation of a just world.  Your pledges of financial support strengthen our fellowship and allow us to nurture not only ourselves and each other, but to look ever outwards to heal our world.

Please help UUFG continue this critical mission by making a financial pledge at your cottage dinner. For those who cannot attend, please contact the UUFG office for a pledge card or contact someone from the stewardship committee (the office can tell you who to call).

- Lisa A., Stewardship Committee Chair

Financial support enables us to continue and grow our religious community. Without your commitment of time and funds, we would not exist. Even if you are unable to commit as much time or money as you'd prefer, every small drop grows to a larger body of service.

If you'd like to pay your pledge or donate because you believe in the mission of our church, you may go to our bank page and make a payment from your checking account or a credit card. You'll need to create a user name and password and the process is well explained.
