Life is a gift...
...and the gifts we've been given by God are meant for the work of God – shaping lives in the way of Christ and living out the gospel vision of justice and mercy. At Portland Mennonite Church we strive to be good stewards of God's gifts, working faithfully and responsibly in mission for our world. As stewards of money and possessions, we are to live simply, practice mutual aid within the church, uphold economic justice, and give generously and cheerfully of our time and resources.
Planning our giving through pledges...
Every year in the fall we invite members and friends of PMC to renew their financial commitment to support the worship and work of the church. This call to generosity is not only a means to fund a budget (though it is surely that!), it is a call to be a certain kind of people and a certain kind of community – compassionate, engaged, trusting, grateful.
Where does my money go beyond the church's operating expenses?
Receipts for donations by check, electronic giving, and cash (if given in an envelope with donor’s name) are provided each January for the prior year. Receipts for one-time online gifts will be provided by Mennonite Foundation.
