Stewardship & Pledging
Christ Church was founded in 1843 and from its founding has been supported by the donations and pledges of its members and friends. Please consider making a pledge for 2021!
Stewardship Kickoff Sunday was October 18, 2020. Stewardship Celebration Sunday will be November 22.
Please take a look at some of our Stewardship Resources for 2020-2021.
The Stewardship Packet was mailed to every family on our mailing list. It included the Brochure and 2021 Pledge Cards. Please return your Pledge Card by Sunday, November 22. You can also email Marie@ChristChurchPelham.org to make a Pledge via email or call the Parish Office at 914-738-5515.
Dear Fellow Parishioners,
This year has reminded us in so many ways of the strength and closeness of our parish community. Even in months of continued physical distancing, the Spirit has kept us together, connecting us in unexpected ways. We have heard much about churches being physically closed, but we were never “closed” – we continued to follow the Gospel call to live in love with our neighbors, finding ever new ways to seek and serve Christ in all people.
As we look to the year to come, we are more committed than ever to the ministry and love we share with our community, our neighbors and one another. Our ministry, our buildings, our clergy and staff are funded through the gifts of its members – your generous offerings given in grace and love. This year we are asking for every member to take part in our stewardship campaign by making a pledge. Included with this letter are materials for making your gift.
The Gospel is rich with examples of how our faith kindles our love for each other and our Christian responsibility to share our gifts and our love with the world. We invite you and your household to pray and learn, taking these next weeks to consider how your generous response to God’s call has been shaped by this community and the friends who gather with you. Thank you for being a part of Christ Church and for your faithful, faith-filled gift to our 2021 campaign.
In the spirit of generosity and love,
The 2021 Stewardship Committee
