Dear Westmorelander:

As Jesus teaches us in the parable of the Good Samaritan, “Go and do the same,” is a powerful reminder of our commitment to be genuine followers of the gospel. It is a call to discipleship, to be more like Jesus, so that our faith may be recognized by our actions toward others.

Be kind, compassionate, generous, and concerned for others in need. Give of yourself. Give financially. Make a difference.

It is a commitment not just to particular actions or behaviors, but a dedication to a way of being. We are called to be agents of transformation and to extend the blessings of health and wholeness to all of creation. The world is broken and hurting, and we are called to strive for wholeness as agents of grace.

Faithful financial stewardship is one way we work for unity and peace. Our generosity funds our mission and our ministry at Westmoreland.

What will it mean for you, as you seek to “Go and do the same,” to be a faithful follower of Jesus?

Please be as generous as you can in your support of the annual fund at Westmoreland. You may pledge to the annual fund by returning the enclosed pledge card or by pledging online at www.WestmorelandUCC.org by November 13, Pledge Sunday.

Faithfully yours,

Jeanine Derr, Chair, Stewardship Team
