Peter, Angela & Joe did a great job of sharing what Collective means to them, the important things our budget makes possible, and the special community we share, where we live and invest in our values.
As illustrated above, as we close week 2 and enter week 3, we’ve got $9,150 per month in recurring scheduled gifts and pledges. This assumes existing 2016 recurring scheduled support remains at its current level. The goal is to pledge our proposed budget of $13,000 per month.
We currently have 50 Pledges, and last year we got up to 62. Some of this gap came from recurring gifts that fell off as we transitioned platforms this summer. Others have been credit cards that expired. These are good reminders to think through whether you'll continue your support as is, and to check in on your giving account to make sure things are as you want them.
We’ve got 5 more weeks to make this happen. We can do this together!
We are a misfit faith community that gathers in DeLand on Sundays at 5pm. Come as you are.
We value highly the metaphor of journey. We’re different people from different places and backgrounds, representing an intergenerational community, and we’ve traveled different paths. So, we agree not to make assumptions about the person across from us, next to us, or in conversation with us. We challenge ourselves to be sensitive, knowing this community includes a diverse group of people from life-long followers of Jesus, to people who are just now open to the idea that God might exist. We strive to avoid offense, ask good questions, articulate and explain our responses. We don’t assume fluency in bible, spirituality, or Church language, because we believe the message of Jesus is not for Christianity, but for humanity. So, we do everything in the spirit of love and grace.
