Celebrating the Season of Generosity
Delight In Giving
Stewardship Campaign for 2013
God loves it when the giver delights in the giving…
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running
over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
To give is a pure and exhilarating feeling for all of us. Whether we give time, give material
objects or give money we all delight in the giving process and its end results. For the First
Congregational Church our delight in giving time, goods or money to our Church allows for us
to continue to serve our many functions that we have for our families and community we serve.
To give represents the abundance we receive each day in our lives. This abundance helps to
grow our Church in its journey through greater and stronger ministries, programs and activities. From our youth groups to Ashlar Village programs, from mission support to those in need in our
Church family our giving helps make those areas a reality. We are blessed to be such an
important part of so many lives, groups and positive activities for our spiritual well being. That
reality of these visible and viable programs brings hope and spirit to our Church community. Please take a moment and peruse our Narrative Budget to understand how your gifts enable this Ministry. There is also an Electronic Funds Option (EFT) for your giving available this year. Please read the following or contact the Church office (203-265-1691) for more information,
To give and pledge your monetary support to our Church allows for the abundance of our lives to
be given back in a small way for the large good of our Church. The journey of our delight in
giving will follow through the fall.
Our Church Council has given considerations to the needs of
our Church and has established a pledge goal of $318,936 for 2013. God loves it when the giver delights
in the giving…is so true.
Please help us meet our goal for 2013.
