Unified Budget Pledge
God continues to bless our church family with faithfulness, new growth, and a renewed excitement for our future! This year, we have welcomed more than 70 new members (thus far) to our congregation and have witnessed financial generosity and ministry mobilization soar in 2022!
I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work in you will continue to complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. ~Philippians 1:6
As we look ahead into a new year, I share in the confidence of the Apostle Paul. The God who has been up to something good in us lately will continue to be up to more of that good until the end!
That is why I am calling on you to be a part of what God will do in and through us in 2023.
Our pastors have fixed our vision upon one common theme or ministry focus for the new year:
“Making more and deeper disciples of Christ.”
In pursuit and service to this ministry vision, we have developed bold goals in each of our areas of ministry which intend to support the call that we sense from God in the coming year. These goals aim for growth that is both numeric and spiritual. One of the many critical ways we need your help is in fully funding the ministries and mission of our church, as we walk by faith into our future.
On Wednesday, November 16, 2022, our church passed a bold Unified Ministry Budget for 2023 which we believe will empower the kind of work necessary to grow more and deeper disciples. Will you help?
Being faithful to God’s call for this next era of ministry and mission will require all of us doing our part. That’s why I am asking you to join me and my family in pledging your financial support to the 2023 Unified Ministry Budget.
Doing so takes 3 simple steps: PRAY…PLAN…PLEDGE.
- Ask what God would have you and/or your family pledge in the coming year.
- Take time to consider your current giving habits and deliberately plan to grow!
- Finally, complete and submit the enclosed pledge card.
You can submit your pledge by returning the enclosed card or by following the link online to www.jcbc.org/pledge.
We are in uncharted territory with unprecedented opportunity.
The next chapter in our church’s history is being written, even as we speak.
Will you be a part of the story?
Thank you for your commitment to Christ and for doing your part to make more and deeper disciples!
Have I told you lately how much I love being your pastor?
Well, I do.
