“As for those who in the present age are rich, command them not to be haughty, or to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but rather on God who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. They are to do good, to be rich in good works, generous, and ready to share, thus storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life that really is life.” — 1 Timothy 6:17-19
We invite you to pledge your support to Paradise Valley United Methodist Church for 2015-2016 during our “Time of Anointing” on Sunday, February 22, 2015. Your pledge will help us plan next year’s budget and allow our ministries to grow responsibly.
The first step, after prayerful consideration, is to fill out a blue pledge card. Regular, faithful giving cultivates a lifestyle of generosity and connects our generosity to our blessings. It can bring great joy. As a thank you and a reminder, we’ll have “Be Rich” magnets for you to take home. Place it where you will see it and remember to “Put your trust in God, who richly provides.”
If you are unable to make a decision on Sunday, that’s ok. Pray about how God is calling you to support the church and return your card next week, or the week after. Budget planning occurs in May, so the sooner we have everyone on board, the sooner we can start planning our ministry for next year. Every gift matters.
You can set up recurring giving via your bank account or a designated credit card, or sign up to receive offering envelopes to give by check or cash in worship. Please refer to the pledge card in the pew pocket for all our giving options or call the church for assistance at 602-840-8360. We thank you for your support of PVUMC. You are God’s love in action.™
