Pledge Your Support

Stewardship season is upon us. So … what’s stewardship? Technically it means “the job of taking care of something.”

In the case of the church, it’s how we raise money to do literally everything that happens here. Our only income comes from you, so without you, we can’t do any of it.

Please prayerfully consider what you or your family might be able to pledge to BPC for 2018. Here, we receive love and give love, and our offerings are one reflection of that love.

Stewardship packets have been mailed. Did you know that we have 700 members and fewer than 220 pledging units at BPC? Putting money in the offering plate is wonderful, but without a promise from you, we can’t plan our budget.

There is a special “I Would Walk 500 Years” display in the narthex. We are literally going to track our pledges in feet! We won’t be naming names or dollar amounts … it will all be anonymous. But every time we collect a pledge, another foot will go up! So make sure your family is among those with a “foot,” a marker of your support of BPC.

Every gift counts, no matter the size. And thank you.

You’ll be seeing green pledge cards, too, and we ask that you bring those to church with you on October 29, which is Commitment Sunday.

Pledge online now.
