With all the wonderful things that are happening at UUCM, this is a great time for us to invest energy and treasure in our spiritual home.
On Sunday, March 3, 2019, we will kick off our annual UUCM Stewardship Campaign, “Growing 2030 Possibilities.” The campaign will run through March 22, and has the ambitious goal to raise more than $330,000. Your support for the church will help us realize new possibilities for UUCM at 2030 Wayzata Blvd East, as we move towards the year 2030.
Each Spring, UUCM prepares a budget for the following fiscal year (July through June). Since Member and Friend contributions make up nearly 90% of our income, we conduct a Stewardship campaign at this time to gather pledges of financial support for the coming year. We ask that each of you determine a pledge amount based on your commitment to the church and your financial resources. We want to receive responses from 100% of our Members and have many of our Friends participate as well. If that happens, we should be able to raise at least $330,000 (12% over last year). This amount will support our growing mission and the payments on our $610,000 mortgage.
Please plan to attend one of the upcoming 90-minute UUCM Gatherings to talk about the future of the church with our Ministers and the Board, and to learn more about the campaign. Sign up for a gathering at 12:00 PM on March 16 or 17 at bit.ly/uucmgatherings or using the sign up sheets in the community room.
If we all join in, we can reach our goal! Make your pledge, and watch this page for updates on the progress of our campaign!
