  2. News : Thank You for Taking the Next Step!

    This has been a wonderful season of remembering and celebrating the work God has been doing at and through Westminster! From the stewardship conversations we had throughout October, to welcoming our partner Pastor Leon from Haiti, to “taking the next step” together on Reformation Sunday – God has surely been at work.

    You have responded to God’s call to take the next step in amazing ways. So far, we have received 237 Estimates of Giving, totaling $957,780. We’ve received 27 new Estimates of Giving and 122 members and families increased their giving. We are on track to be in a strong position as we enter 2018, funding all of the missions and ministries that make a difference in our lives and our community.

    If you have not yet made your Estimate of Giving you can do so by 1) emailing your Estimate of Giving details to Office Manager Elizabeth Takla or 2) making your Estimate of Giving online via myWPC.

  3. News : Year-End Contribution Guidelines

    As you prayerfully consider end-of-year gifts, know that your consistent support is essential for ministry here and throughout Durham. Please contact Elizabeth Takla with questions about payment on your 2017 pledge or additional year-end gifts.

    The income tax regulations specify that a check dated December 31, 2017, but physically delivered in January 2018 is deductible only on the donor’s 2018 federal tax return. Even if a donor backdates a check to read “December 31, 2017,” but gives it to the church on or after January 1, 2018, it will be considered a 2018 donation.

    The only exception to this rule is the case of a check that is dated, mailed, and postmarked in December 2017.

  4. News : Taking the Next Step Wraps Up

    The results of our stewardship program, Taking the Next Step, will be announced during worship this Sunday, November 19. There’s still time to make your Estimate of Giving before our total is shared, and easy options for doing so:

    • Pick up an Estimate of Giving card at the front desk and mail it to the church or bring it to Office Manager Elizabeth Takla’s office (108).
    • Email your Estimate of Giving details to Elizabeth Takla.
    • Make your Estimate of Giving via myWPC (you can also view your giving history in myWPC).

    When you take the next step in generosity, we are able to step forward in support of ministries that truly change lives. We are so grateful for you, and for all of the ways you work to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly in Durham and beyond.

  5. News : Remember to Take the Next Step
