While the good news is that Overbrookers pledged $387,658 for 2018, operating expenses are budgeted to exceed our revenue by $34,145 for the current year. We expect that operating expenses for 2019 will increase. We appreciate that the decision to give is a choice and it is important to you as the giver. The work we do caring for, teaching and supporting others is important too, and the assistance we provide is needed by many.
This is the week to consider your 2019 pledge to your church. Please give generously to ensure that we are able continue doing the necessary work we do in God’s name. Remember that you can pledge to give once, weekly or monthly next year and help us reach our “100% pledged” goal. Next Sunday, October 28th, is Commitment Sunday, an opportunity for you to make your financial commitment to Overbrook Church for 2019. If you haven’t already sent your pledge, please bring your completed card with you that day and drop it in the basket on the Communion table at the appropriate time during worship. If you have already pledged, please pick up an “I’ve Pledged” card to submit when you arrive at church. Pledge cards and “I’ve Pledged” cards are located on the “Measuring What Matters” table in the Narthex.
