2016 STEWARDSHIP

The 2016 Stewardship Program is wrapping up. Since the printing of our list of stewards last month, we are now up to 96 parishioners who returned signed pledge cards. The total pledged is $79,545, for an average of $828 each. The full list of donors will be printed again in the coming weeks. Pledge cards are available in the narthex or you can set up your giving on line.



BUILDING PROGRAM

Our $1 Million Renovation & Expansion Campaign kicked off last week. A resounding 95% of the votes were in favor of proceeding with plans and fund raising. In the coming weeks it is the hope of the Council and Building Committee to chat with each member of our parish, as well as friends outside of Norwood Materials and pledge information is available today in the parish hall. Donations are already coming in. God is good!

TAXES, SOCIAL SECURITY, CARITABLE GIVING . . . CONFUSED?

Our parish has established a relationship with Thrivent Financial (a non-profit organization and #335 on the Fortune 500.) They will offer two workshops in the coming weeks for our members and friends in the community. The dates are February 25th and March 16th, both will begin at 7:00 and last one hour. One will focus on retirement planning and the other on dealing with new Social Security rules. More details will be out very soon. Our contact with Thrivent is Father Ben Kjendal, priest at Saint Michael on the Cape, who also works as a financial advisor.
"The best way to predict the future is to create it."
The vision of a parish is the formulation and articulation of the mission of the parish in future terms. Planned giving is very much about sustaining and effectuating the future of the parish. Strategy is the plan of how the goals and objectives of the parish will be accomplished so that the mission of the parish may be fulfilled.
Planned giving, non-profit organization's (including parishes) source of the largest gifts, therefore, is both visionary and strategic."
