Thanks for Giving!
Every member and attendee has the privilege of partnering with JupiterFIRST Church to change the world with the good news of Jesus.
We invite you to make that relationship official by committing to our Benchmark V principles of membership in 2022! Please return your physical or online pledge card by December 12, 2021.
JupiterFIRST’s Benchmark V
Membership at JupiteFIRST Church is a partnership – a partnership with God and a partnership with this community of faith. We depend on your generosity and we can’t do what we do and spread the Good News of Jesus Christ without you!
We ask each member of JupiterFIRST Church to strive to commit to the following Benchmark V principals and pledge to:
Pray for JupiterFIRST Church regularly.
Worship at JupiterFIRST Church as often as possible.
Strive to give a 5% annual commitment of you/your household income to fund the ministries of JupiterFIRST Church, and additional giving to outreach, mission and charity as God leads.
Participate in at least one ministry of JupiterFIRST Church
Invite at least one person to attend JupiterFIRST Church each year.
Dear Church Family
We invite you to pause with us for a moment during this Thanksgiving season to reflect on the people and memories which sow the seeds of gratitude in our lives and our church. We give thanks to God for the outstanding leadership and ministry of Chip, David, and Marthe. And we give thanks to you, the congregation who symbolizes the heartbeat of JupiterFIRST Church.
We are grateful for your prayerful, emotional and financial support during 2021. As you know, the church has experienced turmoil over the past few years; consequently, membership dropped from approximately one thousand to about five hundred. With this change, please understand that it still costs the same to maintain the campus and facilities, regardless of the size of the congregation. Next year our annual operation expenses are expected to reach over $1.8 million. With that truth alone, you can see why JupiterFIRST will appreciate your pledge more than ever in 2022.
To continue providing a Christ-like place of hope, joy, love and peace for all who join us, either in person or online, we need your pledges to cover not only the basics of church operation but additional support to thrive and grow beyond our walls. Thanks to your giving, JupiterFIRST supports the following ministries: Sunday worship; spiritual growth programs including music, children, teens, and seniors. Moreover, the majority of annual pledges cover daily operating expense associated with business administration; building and grounds; and personnel.
Please help keep the heartbeat strong. As you pause to reflect at the start of the holidays, consider adding a pledge to JupiterFIRST to the list of recipients you will bless with gifts this year. Every pledge, no matter the amount, makes a difference to our mission of maintaining our current programs while adding new opportunities for fellowship, education, and ministry.
Please return your household’s annual pledge card by December 12. The timely response will enable the Council to better plan the 2022 budget, and it will enable you to receive voting rights at the 2022 Annual Meeting. You may mail or drop off your pledge card, place it in the offering basket during worship or make your pledge online.
The JupiterFIRST Ministry Team, Staff and Council are grateful for the unique gifts each person brings to the heartbeat of this church. And we all say, “Thanks For Giving”.
Blessings in Christ,
Mani Amini, Tim Anderson, Erica Barnes, Amanda Dailey, Rich Delucia, Mike Harris, Lynn Hughes, Jim Larkin, Suzanne Martin, Jack Pardue
