Goal for Pledges in 2012: $2,029,709
This amount reflects an increase in pledges of $57,000 (3%) over 2011. The Session believes this modest goal takes into account the current state of the economy and also allows us to continue growing the ministries of Second Presbyterian Church. The bulk of the increase ($34,000) will go to restoring funding for the fourth pastor. This position has not been funded since Jim Miller’s retirement two years ago. The rest of the increase ($23,000) will go to fund outreach ministries of compassion and justice. Reaching the stewardship goal will also allow us to fund our current ministries in the areas of Christian Nurture and Education, Fellowship and Pastoral Care, and Worship and Music.
