For those of you who have already made your pledge to Stewardship 2016, we thank you for being part of the momentum of PHPC as we build upon our strong foundation. We have a goal of 900 pledges. If you haven’t yet turned in your estimate of giving for 2016, we invite you to do that today. You can go online at www.phpc.org/stewardship and click on the "Make a Pledge Online" button or pick up a pledge card in the pews on Sunday and drop it off in one of the boxes in the Atrium or to the receptionist’s desk. Every gift, no matter the size, helps further the ministries of PHPC.
2016 Campaign Details
The theme of Serve, Belong, Believe is based on 1 Timothy 6:18-19: "They are to be 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." Please consider your opportunity to help build the good foundation here at PHPC as we hear more about Serve, Belong, and Believe in the coming weeks.

Share Stewardship With Your Children
The Stewardship Campaign offers a great opportunity to talk with your children about the importance of giving. We have provided two promise cards, one for pre-schoolers and one for elementary age students linked below that you can have your child fill out and either return in the collection plate on Dedication Sunday, November 8, return to their Sunday School collection, or simply keep at home as a reminder that giving goes on year round.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does it mean to make a pledge?
The church asks each year for "estimates of giving" to assist with budgeting for expenditures in the coming year. Making a pledge is an informal commitment to give in the coming year.
How do I pay my pledge?
You can request weekly offering envelopes, ask the church to set up automatic giving (MasterCard, Visa, or EFT), or set up and manage a recurring donation online. You will be prompted to choose an option when you make your pledge.
I take my commitments seriously. I’m thinking about pledging, but I’m concerned about my employment status. If I have a change in my status, can I adjust my pledge?
Yes, your estimate of giving can be changed or cancelled at any time for any reason in a confidential way. Just contact the Finance Office at PHPC at firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-368-6348, ext. 130.
I’m a young adult and don’t have a lot to give right now. Will my pledge of a small amount make a difference?
Yes! If everyone who hasn’t been giving committed to give (regardless of the amount), the church could surpass our current level of giving. Your gift makes a great deal of difference.
What does it mean to be a good steward?
In modern terms, a steward is a "manager," given responsibility to administer faithfully all that God has entrusted to us—making a difference in the world as a follower of Jesus Christ.
I have given faithfully in the past, but I have never made a formal pledge. Why should I?
We appreciate all gifts made to the church, but formal pledges help us plan financially and program ministries and outreach accordingly.
When does my estimate of giving amount go into effect?
January 1, 2016.
Will PHPC send me statements?
Yes, if you give, you will receive a quarterly statement of your contributions for your tax records and to confirm the accuracy of our records.
If you have any questions about giving or pledging, please contanct the finance office at 214-368-6348, ext. 130 or email@example.com.
