Renew. Recreate. Reimagine.
First, thanks and praise for the loving support Grace has received this year through your pledges, contributions, time, and energy. As we enter 2023, we face challenges with rising utility, supply, and service provider costs across the board. But we also find abundant hope in worshiping, learning, and socializing together as a church family and in our many ministries and community programs.
There is also renewal as we serve and reach out into our wider community helping our neighbors in need. In this stewardship season, we are asking that if you haven’t pledged in the past, prayerfully consider making a pledge for 2023. If you did pledge last year, consider renewing your pledge with an increase of 10% to 15% to help us cover our increased expenses. Our goal this year is to raise $270,000 in pledges. That would be a 15% increase in our pledged total from 2022, thus allowing us to both keep up with inflation and continue the deepening of our work as God’s church.
There are several ways to submit your pledge:
Fill out the online form at https://grace-memorial.org/pledging/
Fill out the pledge form found in the back of the church (and in your mail) and place it in the offering plate or mail it to the church office at 1535 N.E. 17th Ave., Portland, OR 97232.
