2019 Stewardship Campaign:
Dear Fellow Servant of the Lord,
Our current sermon and small group series, 40 Days of Love, calls us to a lifestyle in which we habitually show God’s love to others in all our endeavors. As 2018 winds down, your Saxe Gotha officers and staff are excited about what God has in store for us in 2019! The Lord has greatly blessed us in 2018, and we continue to demonstrate how LOVE GIVES as a church that gives God joy through our worship, growth, and service. The coming year is a great opportunity to continue this momentum — expanding our reach in Lexington and beyond — but Saxe Gotha needs your support, commitment, and pledge to make that happen.
Why is Pledging Important? With your pledge, you provide our church leaders with the information needed to craft a budget for the life and work of the church – one that best focuses our resources and helps plan for the year ahead. Pledging also helps members of our congregation with their own budgets, as it sets the amount that we prepare to give each week/month, thus insuring that the Lord gets the “First Fruits.” A pledge is an estimate of giving. You may adjust the amount of your pledge at any time during the year by contacting the church office.
Pledging Opportunities: The commitment card includes two opportunities for us to help our church flourish through our gifts. The first, and most vital, is with a pledge to the yearly church budget for the work and outreach of the church. This pledge provides the financial resources necessary for the many and wonderful ministries at Saxe Gotha, as well as to pay the bills necessary for weekly church operations. We encourage you to make this pledge your first priority.
In addition, you may pledge to the “Debt Free in 3” campaign. The goal of DF3 is for our congregation to retire the remaining balance on the church mortgage by August 2019. This is an ‘over and above’ gift. Early payoff of our mortgage will allow funds allocated to those monthly payments to be used for many opportunities to glorify God for years to come! (Note: Well done good and faithful servants! During the first two years, over $875,000 has been given towards DF3.)
How do I Make a Pledge to Saxe Gotha for 2019? After discerning what the Lord is calling you to give, please complete the pledge card linked below. Commitment Sunday was November 4, but its not too late to give. You may mail your card to the church, drop it off at the church office or place it in the offering plate.
As you make your pledge for 2019, may you experience the joy of giving and the satisfaction of knowing the significant impact Saxe Gotha has in our community and around the world.
In His service,
Stephanie McGee, Bob Speaks, Tina Stallard and George Wham
