A NOTE FROM REV. MATTHEW RUFFNER
One of the first phone calls I received after the church building would close due to the Covid pandemic was from a PHPC member concerned about how this would affect the most vulnerable in our community. They wanted me to know they stood ready to care for the most vulnerable.
That’s the Preston Hollow I’ve come to know and love. In the face of the unknown, in the face of great challenges, we are a community that rises and responds with overwhelming generosity.
We have seen this truth manifest in the wake of the tornados that ripped through our neighborhood last year, and we have seen it in this season of Covid.
Because of your generosity, we have been able to do more missionally than at any other point in our history.
Generosity is in our DNA as a community. We have always been a community that has an attitude of gratitude that leads us to outrageous generosity.
This year will inevitably be different for all of us when it comes to giving. For some, Covid has meant being furloughed or the loss of a job, and that will mean refining their annual giving. Others have experienced record growth and will be able to invest more than they ever have.
No matter where you find yourself this year, the invitation is for us all to give out of an attitude of gratitude and move towards outrageous generosity.
Will you join Sarah and me in making Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church your number one giving priority, living out an attitude of gratitude and moving towards the outrageous generosity to which God invites us?
Our Finance committee and Session use our estimates of giving to create our yearly budget for the church. Our ministry areas depend on your gifts to continue outreach efforts, education programs, worship, care and new initiatives. Pledges go into effect on January 1, 2021
