As members of TCPC, we rejoice in belonging to a church whose mission is serving God and members of our church and community. Acknowledging that all we are given comes from and belongs to God, we value faithful, joyful, and Biblical stewardship of all God’s gifts, including time, talents and our financial resources.
There are two parts to this year’s stewardship campaign and we are calling those “Continuing our Journey” and “Securing our Future”.
This first part of the Stewardship Campaign involves what we do every year, securing pledges to support the worship, mission and ministry of the church. Last year, the Stewardship team focused on expanding our mission activity, both locally and abroad. We want to continue to stress the importance of supporting those programs that need our help such as Rise Against Hunger, Caritas, the Food Pantry, and Prison Ministry, among others.
The second part of the Stewardship Campaign involves starting to pay back the bank loan for the two million dollar renovation project of 2015-2016. The congregation generously pledged and exceeded one million dollars for the project and the other million was financed with BB&T. Starting in 2019, TCPC will begin servicing that debt.
“The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it, the world, and those who live in it…” – Psalm 24:1
As Christians, we sometimes use “churchy words” with the assumption that everyone who hears them knows what we mean, but this might not actually be the case. “Stewardship” is one of those words. So to begin, what is a steward? A simple definition would be: one who manages the possessions of another. This was more common in Biblical times than it is in our modern world, though the term “manager” would be an apt comparison. Thinking in this way, we can probably call to mind a number of managers both on an individual level (a financial advisor who manages a person’s money and investments), and more corporate ones (a city or county manager who is responsible for services and resources for a group of people).
By using TCPC’s safe and secure electronic giving, you may make one-time donations or create scheduled payments for every week, every month … your choice; for various funds. And guests are welcome without signing in!
Please consider choosing the recurring payment option (weekly, monthly or whatever frequency you would follow) within your online banking program. Then you will no longer need to write checks to the church and at the end of the year you will know that you have met your pledge to the church.
You may place your cash or check in the offering baskets during our weekly services.
