2019 Stewardship Campaign

Sep 11, 2018 by

On Sunday, Sept 16th, the 2019 Annual Stewardship Campaign started and will run through Sunday, October 28th

As President Ruby and Pastor Carpenter stated in their cover letter “We are amazed at the blessings that God has provided us within the short time that we have been together and look forward to the future that he has planned for our congregation.”  They further stated that we can “decide…what we will give back from what the Lord has blessed us all with.”  

As a part of the Campaign each household will receive a packet containing the following information:

1.  Estimate of Giving Cards (EOG):  One EOG Card for:

               1)  each individual or married couple in the household, and

               2) each Child age 16 and over living in the household.

If convenient, we would prefer that you submit this information by using the on-line form by clicking HERE!!  This will send the information directly to the Financial Secretary minimizing the possibility of an error.  You can be assured that no one else will see this confidential information.

2.  Time and Talent Survey (T&T):  One survey will be included for each member of your  household 16 years of age or older.  Don’t forget to write your name on the Form.  

Also, if convenient, we would prefer that you submit this information by using the on-line form by clicking HERE!!  This will minimize the possibility of an error when placing the information in our Church database.

If you need an additional paper copy of either form, they are available on the rotating stand outside of the Church office or by calling the Church Office (479) 442-3040 and ask that the form(s) be placed in your mailbox..

3. Self Addressed Envelope:  For your convenience, an envelope, addressed to the Financial Secretary, is included that can be used to return the completed EOG & T&T forms.

If you choose to submit the paper forms, they can be:

  • mailed to the church using the envelope included in this packet,
  • placed in the Financial Secretary’s mailbox using the envelope included in this packet,
  • dropped off at the Church office using the envelope included in this packet, or
  • placed the envelope included in this packet with the completed forms in the specially marked box Ushers Stand in the Narthex
