Our Annual Stewardship Campaign was held throughout the month of October. As of this printing, we have received 68 pledges. Thank you to everyone who made a pledge to support our life and ministry together in 2024. Of these 68 pledges, 14 are new ones and a significant number of people increased their pledge or kept their pledge at the same level. Thank you to everyone for your generosity and commitment. It has been fun to see how many turtles have been placed in the ocean in our sanctuary display. We thank Elena Ghioto for making the wonderful visual art once again this year. We also thank Julie Kennie, Pearl Keinath, and Connie Swedlund for the great “turtle treats” many of us have enjoyed at the display area. We thank those who offered such wonderful stewardship testimonies in October too, Connie Swedlund, Meryl and Rob Earl, and Bert and Lucy Soto. In addition, we thank all the members and friends of the Stewardship and Finance Committee for hosting our celebration luncheon on October 29th, and for building the budget for 2024.
