Sowing Seeds — A Campaign for Our Future still needs your pledge. We have exceeded our initial fundraising goal but have not yet met our participation goal. It is the breadth of participation in our campaign that will truly signal our collective confidence in the future of St. Asaph’s. From this perspective, every contribution is critically important to us, no matter the amount. Accordingly, we will continue to solicit pledges throughout the summer and ask any of you who have not yet pledged to consider doing so at whatever amount is appropriate for you and your circumstances.
The funds that we raise through this Campaign will be used for some necessary capital improvement projects, to restore the choir room downstairs, and to finish other rooms in the basement that we will use for Sunday School or for rental income. We will also hire a Christian Formation director and replenish our invested funds so that we have interest income to help balance our operating budget and a reserve for inevitable property emergencies.
Please pick up a Campaign flyer and a pledge form, available on the piano in the Parish Hall. You can return your completed pledge form in the offering plate, place it in the Sowing Seeds mailbox in the hallway outside the Parish Hall or mail it to the church office. Alternatively, you can also just let one of the co-chairs (John Chou, Marlene Milner or Steve Chawaga) know what you intend to pledge, keeping in mind that the pledge period is intended to run over three years. In addition, you can make donations to St. Asaph’s online, just click the “Donate” tab in the upper corner on our website: www.saintasaphs.org. You will have the option to direct your donation towards St. Asaph’s general (annual) giving or pledge fund or towards the Sowing Seeds Campaign For Our Future. Make sure to choose the Sowing Seeds option if you intend to donate to the Campaign.
For any contributions to the Campaign, please remember to make out your checks to St. Asaph’s Church Campaign and identify “Sowing Seeds” in the memo section of your check.
