2021 Stewardship Pledge
UPC encourages members to give with regularly scheduled donations. This is the most convenient way to give, and it can be done at any designated level. Payments can be changed or stopped at any time. Of course, donations may also be designated to particular missions or endowments or capital campaigns of the church and may also be made on a one-time or repeated basis at any time. If you haven’t yet turned in your Pledge Card, you still can. An online survey can be found here.
