Results of the Stewardship Survey

Each year in the spring, the Stewardship Ministry invites members of the Congregation and friends to make a financial commitment to support the operations, programming, and overall mission of the church. As a part of that process, we asked to hear from you. The results are below. Comments have been reserved for anonymity and to preserve space. They are easily available by contacting any member of the Stewardship Committee.

The Stewardship Committee’s review and discussion resulted in the following discoveries:

  • We had a high number (122) of members respond
  • Nearly half are 20+ year members and all others make up roughly the other half
  • All but one of the questions scored above 4 out of 5
  • People see a clear link between their pledge and helping the church operate
  • Email is the preferred communication AND we recognize that other forms are equally valuable
  • People are clear and confident that there is an alignment between First Plymouth’s mission, funding and spending priorities
  • The Stewardship Committee will prioritize an improvement in the area of committee updates especially ongoing progress of the pledge campaign and the real effect of pledges on helping people

We would love to hear your reactions to the data. Please contact the Stewardship Committee.
