Subject: Pilgrim Members- Response Needed

Good morning from the stewardship team!

Thank you to everyone who has already filled out our brief survey… if you haven’t already, please take a few minutes to fill it out right now:

When Pastor first asked me to participate in this group, I immediately thought this would be mainly focused on creative ways to get church members to raise funds. But after our first meeting, I quickly learned that it is so much more than that. It really covers a far greater objective – encompassing our Time, Talent and Treasure. 
You may be familiar with the parable of the three stewards in Matthew 25:14-30. The conclusion of that is: A steward is not praised for protecting his assets but for multiplying them to further the work of his master!

There are so many ways we are already utilizing our gifts for ministry... it's good to celebrate them and explore how we can strengthen our ministry even more!

So we have put together a short and concise survey. Thank you to everyone who has already filled this out online... There are also hard copies available on the back table at church. This should take only about 10-15 minutes to complete.

We have received 17 surveys so far, with the hope of receiving 50 by this coming Sunday.   The results of this survey will be extremely valuable to us on the Stewardship Committee. It will greatly help us out and provide direction for us as we move forward to Cultivate Creativity, Growth and Generosity in response to the Good News of Jesus. 
We want to thank you all in advance for spending the time to complete the survey.
