We Want to Count You In
How is Pledging Different From Giving?
When we ask families to pledge, we are asking them to commit to giving a certain amount of money in the year 2020. This helps us to budget for the upcoming year. You're not expected to donate the entire amount at the beginning of the year. While you certainly can contribute it as a one-time gift, most will fulfill their commitments through weekly or monthly contributions in 2020.
Why are we asking for your 2020 pledge in October? It takes time to budget for the new year, and JCUMC starts the budgeting process towards the end of October. The more pledges we receive in the fall, the more accurately we can plan for the new year. This doesn't mean that you can't alter your pledge in 2020. You can decrease or increase your pledged amount at any time by contacting Cheryl Small: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
