Dear Members of FUMC Duncanville,
We have only received 134 pledge cards for 2016, which is 27% fewer pledges than received last year. If we do not receive a similar amount of pledges as last year, we will be forced to make radical cuts to staff and programs.
If you have not turned in your pledge card, please email Terri Ivory (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your 2016 pledge, or place it in the offering plate no later than Christmas Eve so that we can plan our ministry for 2016.
If your financial or family circumstances have recently changed dictating a reduction in your pledge, we would appreciate knowing that as well.
Thank you so much for your faithful support of the ministry that God does through FUMC Duncanville. We are very hopeful for all that God has in store for us in 2016 and beyond!
As our children pray, let us continue to pray and support our church.
