Stewardship and giving

Each year for the past several years, more than 95 percent of active Church members have joined together to raise over 70 percent of the cost of our church’s programs and operating costs. Each and every gift matters, and our church community is both grateful for and proud of this strong tradition of participation and philanthropy.

2021 - 2022 Stewardship Campaign: DoinG A NEW THING!

BEHOLD

“And God saw everything that God had made, and, behold, it was very good.” (Genesis 1:31). As Christians, we are called to “lift up our eyes and look around!” (Isaiah 60) to the good and beautiful work that God is doing in our midst. As the Congregational Church of Middlebury, we know we are to witness to this divine effort, and then ask how we can be a part of God’s mission of love and justice in our world. 

    CREATE

    We have faith that God is doing a “new thing” all the time, and now more than ever, the work of the church is to keep making something new with our Creator. As we emerge from the long months of a global pandemic, we have a unique opportunity to look to the future of our church with a new vision. What good things can we create with God this year?

      FOLLOW

      Jesus said to his disciples, “come, follow me!” (Matthew 4:19). As a faith community and as individuals, we each are called to prayerfully discern how Jesus is calling us to follow him in this time and place. We trust that God’s voice will be loud enough for us to hear, and that together, we will have the courage to respond. May it be so.

      TRUST

      The prophet Isaiah claims that God makes “a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert” (Isaiah 43:19). After a challenging season, sometimes we can look back and see the loving ways that God has accompanied us through the lowest valleys as well as on the highest of mountains. With hope in God’s promise, we look with confidence to a bright, rainbow future ahead of us, wherever we are on life’s journey.  

       

        welcoming all

        Come Sunday, our pastors say, “No matter who you are, or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome here.”  Every time we gather, we bear witness to the extravagant welcome and boundaryless love of Christ, who says to seekers or every time and place, “You are loved.  You belong.  You are enough.”  This is what it means to be an Open and Affirming Congregation.  “All are welcome” is where we start.
