2016 has been a time of significant growth for our ministries, membership, and mission. Our momentum has been formidable! In April, we learned that our beloved meetinghouse roof required essential renovation and remediation, yet we did not falter. Worship services have continued both in Parish Hall and out on the lawn and event attendance alongside programing has significantly increased.
I want to begin by saying thank you! Thank you for your resilience. Thank you for your financial support of our ministries. Our church is stronger now than ever. As we look toward 2017, we see abundant opportunities to further expand and deepen our ministries and need to be mindful of the importance of every member’s participation in our annual pledge.
Your generosity has contributed to the longstanding success of our community of faith and its ongoing effort to be a faithful witness for Jesus Christ. Many of our prayers during 2016 have been answered;
This wonderful growth and momentum does not mean we need you less, it means we need you more! We need your talents, we need your time and we need your continued, and if possible, increased financial support. Let’s continue to grow in faith together. To do this, we are asking you to consider a 15% increase in your pledge.
The financial responsibility of FCCD lays on all of our shoulders. Thank you for sharing the weight, and for your prayerful consideration and generous response to this once a year request.
With sincere gratitude,
Our doors are open to all regardless of where you are on your faith journey. So, step inside and experience the unconditional nature of God’s love and grace. You belong here. You are welcome here.
