2016-2017 Stewardship Drive
What Is Stewardship?
Stewardship means to supervise, care for, or manage something; especially the careful and responsible management of something entrusted to one’s care. At Tapestry, your stewardship means your involvement, your care, and your attention to our congregation.
One of the most important parts of stewardship is the financial support of our ministry. We are a non-profit organization, but money is an essential element in sustaining our spiritual home.
Leap of Faith Stewardship Drive
This is an exciting time for Tapestry! Think of your recent experiences at Sunday worship services and congregational events. You’ve seen:
Powerful Sunday Morning Worship
Through Rev. Kent’s preaching, a vibrant music program, dedicated worship associates, and diverse guest speakers, every Sunday morning offers something special.
Talented and Dedicated Staff
Tapestry is blessed with a Music Director, Children’s Religious Education Director, and Office Administrator who go above and beyond. Through the hard work of search committees and a generous sprinkling of good luck, we have found a dream team of congregational staff.
Growing Ministry to Young Families
Over the past two years, Tapestry has fostered a dramatic increase in the involvement of young people. The energy and curiosity of our young families strengthens every aspect of our life together.
Buying a Permanent Home
For the first time in forty years, Tapestry is positioned to buy our own property. A team of Tapestry leaders is exploring options to buy a property that is large enough to house our growing community. Renting has served us well; now it is time to take a big step toward long-term stability and financial health.
Standing Up and Speaking Out
Friends of Orange County Detainees is a national leader in caring for undocumented immigrants. Our Green Sanctuary program helps us live our value of respecting the Earth. And, through study and action, Tapestry is becoming an anti-racist voice for reform.
Take a Leap of Faith and increase your pledge!
Together we have built powerful momentum, moving us toward our dreams. We need each and every member of our community to help Tapestry take its next step and leap into our exciting future. On Sunday March 20th, we will join together to celebrate the moral and spiritual act of pledging our financial support for the coming fiscal year.
