What Is Enough?

Stewardship 2021

The Stewardship committee has discussed at length how our theme for this years’ pledge drive–What is Enough–means to us individually Committee represents a cross section of Mayflower as a whole. We are fortunate to “have enough” as we discern how we support Mayflower and other non-profits to further our mission of social justice.

We thank you for your generous support over the last year! You have enabled the church to thrive amidst challenges never before faced due to the pandemic. You have showed your love and caring for the church, our staff, and our social justice outreach.

As you prayerfully discern your pledge for next year, we hope you are on a tithing journey that keeps growing to the modern tithe of 5% to Mayflower and 5% to other causes near and dear to you. We also encourage you to tell us if you have included Mayflower in your estate plan or will. If you have not and plan to, we would appreciate knowing that, too.

Thank you and we look forward to receiving your pledge*!

Several years ago, Mayflower congregants worked together to write and perform a Readers Theatre which includes many compelling stories on giving. We’re sharing this link to help you discern how much is enough.

  • This is a tool for creating your pledge for 2022.
  • Creating a pledge here does not link to online giving. If you want to create or change your online giving to reflect your pledge, you would do that in the “Giving” section of Realm.
  • Once you create a pledge in Realm, Realm does not allow you to change the pledge yourself. Please contact the church office and we can delete the pledge, and you can re-enter it or we can do that for you.
