Every Sunday we sing these works in our effort to live out a spirit of gratitude and abundance in our everyday lives. Our members and friends support the mission of the church through financial giving and the volunteering of time and talents at the church and our partner organizations.
Like so much else in the world today, this year’s pledge drive will have a different look than in past years. Rather than one Stewardship Sunday, this year we are having a Stewardship month. Beginning October 18 and ending November 15, you can make your pledge online or complete a card that will come to you via mail. Our goal is to increase total pledges by 2% over last year’s total. To help you calculate your pledge, download this handy pledge guide.
Christian stewardship is a spiritual discipline, both individually and collectively within the membership of a congregation. At Mayflower, we believe we are stewards of the resources that have been given to us, and take seriously our responsibility to use those resources for the good of all. We people of faith want every penny we spend or give to be in line with what God wants for the world.
We are called to give in proportion to our income and the demands upon it and in proportion to our sense of justice and of God’s ownership of all wealth. The Stewardship Ministry suggests a “modern” tithe, which means you share approximately 5% with the church and 5% with other charities of your choice.
Are you at least 70-1/2 and have an IRA? Learn about tax benefits available when you contribute to Mayflower.
If you have already included Mayflower in your estate planning, we would like to know! Please fill out the form, “Your Mayflower Legacy,” and return to the Mayflower office, or let us know in person.
Each month, we highlight one of our partner organizations, who enable us to be catalysts for justice in the wider church and community. Give online or leave a check in the offering place with “special offering” in the memo line. All special offerings received during the month will go to the designated partner:
Meals on Wheels
Creekside Common Homework Helpers
Conversations with Friends
It’s easy to pledge and give through our online giving site, Realm. Watch the helpful video below, and click here for detailed instructions.
