November is Pledge Drive Month

November is pledge drive month at Fairwood Community UMC. Letters and pledge cards were mailed the last week of October. We ask that you prayerfully consider the amount you wish to give to your church for 2024. A similar amount to 2023 will be needed to support our mission work; therefore, our goal is $380,000.
12/17/23 update

78 responses and $314,815 pledged to our 2024 budget

Extra copies of the pledge cards are available in the narthex (as you enter the sanctuary).
