Annual Stewardship Pledge Drive
When you give to Westminster, you are financially supporting our open, inclusive congregation and our mission in the community and world. Sunday is a time of healing, reflection, learning and laughter in the presence of God and through the guidance of Senior Pastor, Dr. Rob McClellan, Associate Pastor, Bethany Nelson and Youth Minister, Jeff Shankle. Our full complement of programs include: family-friendly and contemplative worship services, Sunday School classes, an inspired youth ministry program, a variety of adult study and fellowship groups, special speaker programs, pastoral care to our church family and connections with our inter-faith community. Your gifts also allow us to maintain our beautiful, recently renovated facilities and grounds.
Each year WPC community members come together to pledge their financial support for Westminster’s operating budget. While pledges are accepted throughout the year, they are typically made in the fall during our Annual Stewardship Pledge Drive to be funded the following year. The pledge drive provides valuable input to the following year’s budgeting process. Members and non-members have the opportunity to pledge. The vast majority of our income comes from congregational support via the annual pledge drive or through giving via the offering plate on Sundays. Like all Presbyterian congregations we fund our operations at the local level. There is no financial support from the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).
THE LEGACY FUND
(Endowments, Memorials & Special Gifts)
With a gift to the Legacy Fund, you can support Westminster's ministry and help to increase its financial strength for decades to come through lifetime giving and/or charitable estate planning.
Please consider designating the Legacy Fund in your will or make a gift during your lifetime for general support or specific purposes, such as Spiritual Life, Music, Youth Programs, or Mission Trips. Even a modest gift can be invested to provide funding for your wishes well into the future.
Memorial gifts honoring a loved one can also be designated with a gift to the Legacy Fund.
In choosing to donate to the Legacy Fund, it is important to understand the tax implications of your gift. Giving to the Legacy Fund during your lifetime and through your estate may help to reduce federal estate and gift taxes significantly. Please consult your estate planner to advise you on important considerations and in identifying assets that could be used to make a lasting gift.
