With Generosity & Gratitude
Dear Members and Friends,
On March 20, 2023, we officially began our Annual Pledge Drive, to be completed by Sunday, April 16. The process is simple. For those on our mailing list, we mailed you a request, plus forms, and you reply with your pledge by completing the forms and returning them to church in person or by mail by Sunday, April 16. If you prefer, or you are an online participant only, you may pledge online via the link above. We encourage you to be as generous as possible.
Sunday, March 26, on Stewardship Sunday, we asked those present to write individual Thank You notes to all who pledge this year. These personal notes with expressions of gratitude will be sent to all who pledge during this period.
It is important for all of us, wherever on the journey, to understand that our annual pledges make Central Square Congregational Church come alive and stay alive—alive in worship, alive in the community, alive in committees and groups that use our building, alive in the world, as we all work together to make mission happen day after day. Our mission happens because we give selflessly and we give because of the LOVE that enables us to BE!
We have no national or regional United Church of Christ organizations that provide funds to our congregation. It is just us, generously backing up our feelings of appreciation and gratitude with money.
We ask you to remember we are still in transition, coming out of a tumultuous three-year period of dealing with worldwide health issues. Still, new ministries have begun—our Thrift Shop, Kids Church and more. We have reorganized with a new constitution to match needs today. It is an exciting time to be a part of Central Square Congregational Church.
