Generosity

New Schedule for Generosity Campaign

 
Historically, New Providence has conducted a spring stewardship campaign asking members of the congregation to make a pledge that indicates their anticipated annual giving. We then take those numbers into the budgeting cycle to match income to expenses.
 
This year we want to do things differently. After much study and discussion, the NPPC session has decided to modify the process by moving our stewardship drive to the fall, while maintaining a July to June budget year. 
 
We have several reasons for a shift:
  • calendar year giving simplifies reporting for members; 
  • stewardship is about responding to God, not a budget; and
  • we have every reason to believe that NPPC members will continue to faithfully step up to meet the financial needs for our congregation’s mission and ministries. 
 
This will be a transitional year into the new process. The 2019-20 budget will be generated and go into effect July 1, 2019, before pledges are received in Fall 2019. During this transition time, we are asking each of you to continue giving at least at your current level, if not greater. 
 
Previous Cycle
  • Spring: Individuals pledge annual giving
  • Spring/Summer: Budget is prepared, session votes to approve
  • Fiscal Year: July 1-June 30
 
New Cycle 
  • Fall: Individuals pledge annual giving
  • Spring/Summer: Budget is prepared, session votes to approve
  • Fiscal Year: July 1-June 30
 
Thank you for your prayerful support as we make this shift. Look for more information in the near future.
