Sending a big THANK YOU to all of you who have pledged to date! We are now at $320,000 almost 75% toward our goal of $435,000!
December can be a busy time for all of us. The Board is putting together the 2019 budget and reaching our goal of $425,000 is essential to helping them create a budget that reflects and deepens our values! Moreover, the Ministerial Search committee along with the Board is going live, any day now, with the packet for prospective ministerial candidates that will include a financial portion.
Please consider making a pledge today! You can make your pledge on the First Unitarian Church of Oakland homepage https://uuoakland.org. Just scroll down to the button labeled “Pledge Today” with the chalice graphic and green background. Or you can send an email with your information to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, whatever donation you can give will help our many shared ministries within and beyond our walls including music, worship, child and family faith education, Boost! West Oakland, and our partnership with the Ella Baker Center just to name a few! Also, we want to offer a financial package for the new minister that will attract the very best candidates possible for our church!
In faith and gratitude, your Stewardship 2019 Team
