On Stewardship and Pledging:
Spring is the time of year when each of us has the opportunity to renew our commitment and support of our Lakeshore Unitarian Universalist Congregation. Our pledges and contributions of the three “Ts”: our time, our talents and our treasure, are critically important to support and further develop our UU programs and services for the next year. We encourage our members to inform themselves about what it takes to keep our self-governing and self-financing community going and accomplishing its common purposes.
As Lakeshore’s fiscal year begins May 1st, the incoming Board depends on the financial pledges of our members and friends to prepare the operating budget for the following year, before it is presented at our statutory Annual General Meeting in June.
If you were able to attend the Treasurer’s Stewardship Report in April, please fill in the Pledge Form handed out in church OR alternatively you can use – at any moment during the year – this Rich Text Format Pledge_form.
Even if you are unable to predict for the coming year the level of financial support you will contribute, you still can receive a tax receipt for each calendar year by putting your offering (cheque or cash) in an envelope with your name in the Sunday plate. If you wish, you can pick up an envelope at the door where you get the Order of Service and song books; then, you should write your name (not the amount) on the envelope before the service starts.
