STEPPING UP Call to Action
How you can help with SCRIP
Worship attendance averages a little over 200 a week. If everyone put in $1 in loose change each week, that would be $10,400 in a year, or almost 6% of our STEPPING UP goal.
Did you know that the church continues to receive about $11,000 a month from Reach & Renew pledges? If those monthly Reach & Renew pledges were continued as part of the 2017 pledges, it would increase total pledges by $132,000 a year, or 75% of our STEPPING UP goal.
Did you know that the average pledge amounts to about $9 a day? Increasing the average pledge by just $3 a day will put us on track to exceed our STEPPING UP goal. The STEPPING UP goal is to create a sustainable budget by increasing the level of giving to a level that is realistic to our anticipated expenses.
Woodman's & HyVee SCRIP cards offer a 5% rebate to our church. If 50 families use $200 of SCRIP cards for groceries each week, that would earn $26,000 a year for the church - or almost 15% of our STEPPING UP goal.
The number of people participating in our church community has increased over the past several years, but the number of pledgers has remained constant at 174 per year. If 35 new givers pledged an average of $500 a year ($10 a week) the church would increase pledges by $17,500 or 10% of our increased 2017 goal.
