Stewardship Letter
 

Dear Eastminster family,

The energy and momentum at Eastminster Presbyterian Church are palpable these days.  Regardless of the ways in which you engage the life of this faith community, we hope you can sense the movement of the Holy Spirit here. It’s from this place that we come to you about our stewardship campaign for the coming year, and ask for you to join us.

Eastminster is a congregation of generous people, who have invested much time, energy and work, but commitments of financial gifts are also critical to the work of the future here. While much good work has happened, we must all step forward to ensure our beautiful campus is taken care of for future generations, our staff are well-supported, our children and youth ministries are strengthened, and our missions and outreach increase. 

Stewardship is an invitation to participate in the work of the Spirit at Eastminster. Pledges help us build and plan as we move forward into God’s future together. We need everyone to make a commitment. Why? Because God is, in God’s own heart, One who gives. We are called, as followers of this same God, to be generous. How will we respond?

As we journey through this season, we invite you to use the attached materials as we listen for God’s call to us.

  • Personal Discernment Questions– Questions for prayerful reflection on how you are called to respond to God’s generosity and to Christ’s teaching to love God and neighbor.  Here are the 2021 Discernment Questions.
 
 
  • 2021 Time and Talent Form – Spend time considering how you give your time and talent to Eastminster. How might God be calling you to use your gifts in 2021?  When you are ready, you can update the from online here.
 
  • 2021 Giving Grid– Find your current level of giving on the Giving Grid at the intersection of your Annual Income row and the Monthly Giving column. Move to the right to determine what kind of steps you can take on your personal giving path.  Here is the Giving Grid.
 
  • 2021 Pledge Card– Indicate how you will commit to the mission and ministry of Eastminster in 2021. Bring your completed card with you to worship on Sunday, November 1, mail it to the church office, or complete it online here Alternatively, you may pledge through your OnRealm account (https://onrealm.org/Eastminster/Signin) using the option: Giving > Pledge Campaigns > Pledge Offerings, Jan 1 – Dec 31, 2021 after you login.”
 
  • 2021 Children and Youth Pledge Card– Invite your children to be a part of the future of Eastminster in 2021. These pledge cards will be turned in on Sunday, November 1 during worship or they can update it online here.

 

We are asking you to join us in renewing our commitment to Eastminster, and pledging our time, talents, and treasures for the upcoming year.  We aren’t praying for money or larger pledges, but that God might work God’s own purposes out through each of us. Commitment Sunday will be on November 1, please turn in your commitment card and time and talent card on that day.  We hope that you will join us in committing to do more, as we worship, grow, and go in our faith together.

Faithfully yours,

The 2021 Stewardship Team

Eileen Osteen, Lynn Moorshead, Dan Harris, Ed Irick, and Michael Randall

2021 Stewardship Campaign Resources
Thank you Letter

Dear Pledging Member,

On behalf of Eastminster Presbyterian Church’s Session, we thank you for your generous Pledge to support the 2021 Eastminster Stewardship Campaign.  We understand that these are difficult times and we thank you for your gracious support and for your willingness to share your time and resources with the church, as they are needed now more than ever.  With commitments like yours, we can go into a new year with renewed faith and with confidence that our ministry in this community and around the world will continue to make a difference.

 

Your pledge will help enable our members and friends to provide the needed gifts to serve one another as well as the wider community.  While we have much to be thankful for, we also have much to do in the future as we Worship, Grow, and Go in our faith together.

 

Thank you for sharing your time, talent and treasure with Eastminster Presbyterian Church.  Your generosity makes all that we do possible.
