Your Stewardship group has prepared a four week program seeking input from the congregation prior to preparing for our KUC fiscal year, 2014. We seek your ideas, views, and comments prompted by four questions, one each week from Oct. 27 to Nov. 17.
The first question was “At KUC, what’s important to you?” The responses have been posted in the entrance hall leading to the fellowship hall space. There were many varied responses and not one overwhelming focus. KUC is many things to our people.
The second question was “At KUC, who makes a difference for you?” “Who” could be a person or persons, a group, a program, what/who has had an impact on you is some significant way. We received numerous responses. It was difficult to choose ONE answer and so there were many persons or elements of KUC life listed.
On Sunday, Nov. 10, Question 3 is: “What do you dream for KUC?” This is an opportunity to give ideas about what KUC could be, what programs, activities, outreach, services it could provide which perhaps it has not been doing. Your dreaming could be an expansion of something already in place at KUC, or an entirely new venture. Feel free to dream!
Next week, week 4, we will ask you to consider making a declaration about financial intentions for the next KUC fiscal year. It will not be a pledge, nor will your name be asked, but we hope to get an indication of generosity, a willingness to increase your gift to KUC next year to keep current personnel, programs, facilities, and activities going, and maybe, begin some new ventures. All aspects of KUC life require generous giving. Your responses next week will be a good indication of expectations for 2014.
For those at home and not able to attend the service, please use e-mail to send a response back through the KUC office. We are interested in receiving as many responses as possible.
The four week program and the four questions have a purpose: Church leaders, Council Circle, Ministers, and others want to build upon the generosity shown by KUC members over this last year, and be sure to create a fiscal framework and budget in 2014 which truly reflects the beliefs and wishes of the congregation.
PLEASE BRING A PENCIL OR PEN WITH YOU TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY! Thank you.
