We’re inviting every congregation in the Greater Milwaukee Synod to increase their annual mission support by $500, in honor of the 500th Anniversary of the reformation. Or, if it makes more sense, you can increase your commitment by $1 for every baptized member in your congregation. Once every congregation responds to this challenge, we will have more than $60,000 in increased revenue. In addition, we have received a special challenge grant of $10,000, which we will receive if 50 congregations raise their mission support commitment for 2017.
Please watch the video invitation from Bishop Erickson, ideally at an upcoming congregation council meeting, then register your congregation’s commitment below. It would be wonderful to have 50 congregations respond by the opening of our synod assembly, June 1. The Spirit is moving, calling us to serve; let’s respond in faith!
