Dear Fellow Church Member,
As of last week, we are two thirds of the way toward accomplishing our pledge goal. If you are
reading this letter and have made your pledge of financial support this year, please accept our most sincere
thank you, thank you, thank you!
If you have made your decision but have not yet sent in your pledge form, we would appreciate it if you
would put that form near the top of what is no doubt a large pile of things to do this time of year. The
Trustees are formulating a final budget, and it would be helpful to have your pledge. However, that is a
gentle request and certainly not a requirement, and any time that you can see your way clear to make
your pledge is certainly the right time.
To those who are still up in the air as to whether you will make a pledge, we make a special plea. No
doubt you are being swamped with requests for donations, as are we all.
We consider our request to be unique, because any donation you make to your church will benefit you
directly. The First Congregational Church of Wallingford is your faith home right in your town. And
because of that, you know exactly where, when and how every dollar of your money will be spent.
Okay, enough said. Let us conclude by wishing each and every one of our fellow faith family members a
joyous Christmas season. And may 2017 bring you good health and true happiness.
Steve Knight, on behalf of the members of the Stewardship Committee:
Bernie Annunziata, Jill Banatoski, Steve Perkowski, Martha Smith, Glenn Whitehouse, Jean
Please make your pledge for the 2017 Church Budget.
