2015 Campaign Details
As promised in Jeremiah 29, God has a plan for PHPC. Our call is to trust in God’s provision for us so that we, too, might leave a strong legacy. To continue the momentum, PHPC depends on the faithful and generous gifts of its members. Please prayerfully consider your Stewardship pledge for 2015 to insure that PHPC will provide “A Future with Hope”, this year's theme for Stewardship 2015.
Stewardship 2015 Videos
As part of Stewardship 2015, we have asked members of the congregation to reflect on those experiences at PHPC where God's will has will lead us to "A Future With Hope".
In the video below, Jack and Marilyn Irons talk about what PHPC has meant to them and the impact our ministries have had in our community. They are also joined by Stephanie and Avery Flores and Jordan and Ellie Cappetta as they discuss how events and ministries at PHPC both created and strengthened their friendships.
Below, we hear from PHPC Deacon Peggy Reppe on giving her time to make calls for those seeking prayers.
This week, we spoke with Doris Sampson as she talks about her volunteer time served with McShan Elementary, working with children new to the United States.
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 email@example.com 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, 2014.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
