We support our mission and congregation in many ways – with our presence, with our work, with our spirits that bring loving hearts and open minds to the community. And we support it financially. We are all stewards of the congregation and every pledge counts..
What is a pledge?
A pledge is a promise to donate a certain amount of money to the congregation during the fiscal year (July-June). It is a promise that we make to each other, to nourish the faith that sustains us. Pledges account for the largest percentage of our operating budget, 70% to 80%. So, every new pledge plays a decisive role in our ability to fulfill its mission each year. As a congregation we pledge during the Annual Stewardship campaign in March.
You are invited to support the congregation and its work.
If you are a member of River Road, or you are not a member but want to help, we invite you to financially support the congregation and its work. In giving to River Road, we build a community that supports our spiritual growth, encourages our children to thrive, and renews us with inspiring sermons and beautiful music.
For all of this, our members and friends give generously. Financial commitments made during the Annual Stewardship Campaign are used to build our annual budget. We encourage new congregants who start participating during the fiscal year to join us in pledging pro rata. This ensures River Road continues to provide a place where we find community, refresh ourselves amid challenges and opportunities, promote social justice, and grow in fellowship, spirit, and service.
