The mission of the Stewardship Committee is to raise congregation awareness of the resource needs at the Paint Branch Unitarian Universalist Church (PBUUC) and to inspire members and friends to a responsible and generous commitment of their time, talent, and treasure toward meeting our shared needs. Most of all, we want our members and friends to feel good about the commitments they make to our shared religious community.
The volunteers of the Stewardship Committee lead the Annual Campaign. The Annual Campaign is a series of events that asks each member and friend for their annual financial commitment to PBUUC for the following church year (July 1 to June 30). Annual financial pledges from the congregation constitute PBUUC's largest source of income, representing over 75% of our yearly budget. Pledges are kept confidential. Although we provide suggested giving guidelines, each individual or family make a pledge that fits their own circumstances and involvement with our community.
Planning for Annual Campaign usually begins during the fall of the previous calendar year. The Stewardship Committee decides on the overall theme and strategy and then plans the events usually held in the winter and spring. These events can include training workshops, testimonials during Sunday Services, breakfasts or luncheons, evenings of fellowship or entertainment, small group gatherings, person to person visits, and a Commitment Sunday service. Information about the Annual Campaign is shared with the congregation through mailings, email, the monthly newsletter, and the Annual Campaign brochure.
