Missions Giving Guide
The Missions budget is prepared by the Missions Board, presented to the Elder Board for approval and voted on each year at the Westgate Church annual meeting. It is the desire of the Elder Board that members of Westgate Church first tithe to the Westgate general fund. The Elders in turn give a tithe of the general fund to help Westgate Missions. The remaining needs of the annual missions budget depend upon the generosity of Westgaters to give to missions above and beyond their tithe to Westgate Church. Pledges are received from the congregation during the fall annual missions conference. Some choose not to complete pledge cards and just give to the missions fund. This is very acceptable, although it makes it more challenging for the Missions Board to plan for the financial year.
There are opportunities to give of your self through both short and long term commitments. Please contact anyone on the Westgate Missions Board for current information.
Annual pledges are an extremely important part of the development of the Missions Budget. Westgate Church has the privilege of helping to support 30 missionaries and missions organizations around the world. Pledge envelopes may be found in the pews and put in the boxes at the back of the sanctuary. Please pray that enough pledges are received so that Westgate can increase support levels to those missionaries who are in great financial need.
If you have any questions, please contact any member of the Westgate Missions Board.
