If you didn’t yet have the chance to submit a Beyond pledge toward the future of Chestnut Ridge Church, you can stop by the info kiosk in the center of the lobby to pick up a commitment card, or you can fill out an electronic version of the card [here].

As Pastor Tim shared in his message on Commitment Sunday:

  • The hope is that all will participate, regardless of the amount.
  • No amount is too small.
  • It is a 3-year campaign. The money you pledge is not all due at once, although if some can give a “first fruits” amount at the front of the campaign, some of the work will be able to begin right away.
  • Consider making a sacrifice. Many of us tend to give out of our excess, or what’s left. Be encouraged to pray about doing something for Christ that might cost a little. There’s a section in the back of the Beyond brochure that discusses sacrificial giving.
  • Exercise faith. Realize that God is able to provide for you.
  • If your circumstances change, and you’re unable to fulfill your pledge, just let us know about it later, and we can adjust the pledge accordingly.

Here’s what you need to know to make sure your Beyond contributions are added to the initiative’s funds:

  • When making Beyond contributions online:  Choose the fund named BEYOND.
  • When making Beyond contributions with cash:  Provide your name and address, and write BEYOND on the envelope each time you make a pledge installment.
  • When making Beyond contributions with online banking or personal checks:  Include BEYOND on the check memo line each time you make a pledge installment. If you’d like to split a contribution between funds, include the designated amount for each fund. For example, a $100 contribution designating $75 to GENERAL FUND and $25 to BEYOND.
  • NOTE:  Beyond contributions will not be added to the initiative’s funds if BEYOND is not included on each pledge installment of your contribution.
  • Have questions? Visit the Beyond web page, and click on the FAQs icon. You can also call the church office at 304-594-0548, and speak with Ashley.

Your pledge to Beyond will make a way for you, your family, our church, and people in the community to have a welcoming and inviting place to come. Your pledge will impact the next generation, help to create irresistible environments, make a difference in retiring debt to prioritize ministry, and be used to “go” and “make disciples” through our ministry partners. Thank you!
