Help Us Close the Pledge Gap

Our recent canvass yielded $360,000. Thanks to everyone who has already made a pledge. This amount is roughly what we raised last year. It falls short of the $395,000 we need to support the budget for next year.

Here's how you can help:

​If you have already pledged, consider increasing your pledge. Even a small increase will help.

If you haven't pledged, we really need your support of the programs of the church. Even a modest pledge of $500 for the year ($60/month) would go a long way to closing the gap.

Please act before May 5!

So that FRS can build a budget that connects its aspirations and its financial means. A pledge is an expression of your commitment to the church.
