Our theme for this year’s stewardship campaign is, “Now More Than Ever: Receive Hope, Be Hope, Share Hope.”

Whether we gather for worship inside our sanctuary, in our parking lot, or online, we continue to be the body of Christ through our ministries, our witness, and our care for one another.

This is not a time to pull back in fear, but to support one another, love our neighbor, and lean into the promises of God, like never before.

Now, more than ever, we ask you to generously contribute to support our life and ministry.

How does my Pledge support the Church?

Pledging support for the year ahead allows us to create a sound budget to support our ministries. Broadly speaking, the church’s financial needs include these areas:

This is the smallest of the four components. It includes support of programs critical to our spiritual life including our children, family, adult education, music and worship ministries.
This is our largest expense. We are blessed with a staff of dedicated, faithful and talented women and men bringing God’s nurturing love to us all on our faith journey.
We are stewards of a fantastic, historic campus. Regular maintenance is required every year, and utilities, insurance, and other expenses continue to rise.
Mission remains a central tenant at BRPC. We are called to serve those in need and we rejoice in opportunities to do so locally and around the world.
Letter from Stewardship Council

Dear Friends,

Now more than ever the ministry of Christ at the Basking Ridge Presbyterian Church is needed. Much of life as we knew it came to a sudden halt this past March as COVID-19 took hold of our local and global community.  Most workers and students were sent home.  Many businesses closed.  We learned the new term of social distancing and the imperative of wearing masks.  Yet the ministry of BRPC did not come to a stop.  Not for a single day.  Our worship services and most of our other ministries swiftly moved online. Our ministries of caring for our own members and serving our neighbors in need expanded.  Our programs for children and youth, and our adult small groups, continued to offer experiences of connection and spiritual nurture. This past summer we offered two local mission trips for our youth, and Vacation Bible School “at home” edition. Whether we gather for worship inside our sanctuary, in our parking lot, or online, we continue to be the body of Christ through our ministries, our witness, and our care for one another.

Our theme for this year’s stewardship campaign is, “Now More Than Ever:  Receive Hope, Be Hope, Share Hope.” God calls us to navigate the uncertainty of the year ahead with boldness and with faith. God calls us to receive, embody, and share with others the hope that is ours in Christ. This is not a time to pull back in fear, but to support one another, love our neighbor, and lean into the promises of God, like never before. “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1)

Sunday, November 15, 2020 will be a Consecration Sunday unlike any other in the history of our church.  It is the day we are given the opportunity to renew and deepen our commitment to the ministry of Christ at BRPC.  Now, more than ever, we ask you to generously contribute to support our life and ministry.  You can pledge in 3 different ways — whichever is easiest for you:

+ Pledge online (form below),
+ Pledge with a confidential email to pledge@brpc.org,
+ Or mail your pledge card to the church office.

You are part of a legacy of great generosity in supporting the life and work of BRPC, generously giving of your time, energy, faith, and financial resources to sustain and grow our work and ministries. We are mindful that for some of our members jobs have been lost, and other factors are now present that may prevent you from giving in the way that you would like. For others this has been a year to re-examine and reflect on our lives and the blessings that we have, and we have a new perspective of gratitude. For everyone who is able to give, we invite you to give generously, joyfully, and more boldly than you have ever given before so that our ministry will continue to thrive. Our goal at BRPC is to grow our ministry, grow our caring, and grow our outreach.  That can only happen with your generous involvement and participation.

As you consider your financial commitment for the upcoming year, we invite you to join us in the prayer provided on the back of your individual pledge card. As we look toward 2021 with faith and with hope, may God deeply bless you in your moments of giving, as well as in your moments of receiving.

With joyful thanks to you and to our loving God!

Verification

So let us not grow weary in doing what is right, for we will reap at harvest time, if we do not give up. So then, whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all, and especially for those of the family of faith.— Galations 6:9-10
