Power Pledge Initiative for 2020
On Sunday, February 16, the Accountability Committee members kicked off Imani MCC’s Power Pledge Initiative for 2020. The goal of Imani MCC’s 2020 Power Pledge is to challenge the membership and regular attendees to be faithful, committed, and accountable in their giving, i.e.
leading the church to give more to better meet the needs of the 2020 Austerity Budget.
Giving is an expression of our thankfulness and praise to God. It comes from a heart of worship that recognizes everything we have and give already belongs to the Lord. We all can learn to be a cheerful giver by studying the greatest giver this world has ever known - Jesus Christ.
The Committee distributed pledge cards to the congregation for individuals or households to complete over the week of February 17. As you can see from the card below, we are asking our members, regular attendees, and other interested community members to join us to make a commitment for purposeful giving to Imani, MCC indicating as follows:
- Total amount of pledge (for the year)
- Installment plan for completing pledge (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, and one-time gifts)
- How you best be encouraged and held accountable if you miss a milestone (e.g., a phone call, text, letter)
Many brought their completed cards to the service on Sunday, February 23, 2020. If anyone would like to participate, please contact Yvonne Ricci to coordinate submitting your pledge card. (Yvonne will pick it up from you if needed). Also, if there are others you know that may want to contribute, you can contact Yvonne and she can get them a pledge card.
