Make a Pledge

And as every organization you’re a part of has already said to you, your financial support means more now than ever to keep this flexibility, creativity, and faithfulness alive and thriving in the year to come. Thank you for the gifts you’ve given this year to support God’s ministry at First Baptist Church of Indianapolis.

In a few weeks, stewardship season will begin at First Baptist Church. The theme for this year is “Together for Joy,” and our goal is clear: to fully fund the ministry of our congregation for the coming year. Commitment Sunday is November 21. On that day, we will seek to meet the challenges before us by gathering up our pledges, blessing them, and then celebrating together in worship.

Before then, we hope you will take the enclosed pledge card and place it somewhere prominent in your home. Whenever you see it, ask God to help you discern your pledge for the coming year. And as you do, consider praying this prayer: 

Great One, for you the floods clap, for you the hills sing. You know my situation better than anyone. Take my credits and debits, ins and outs, pluses and minuses, surpluses and lacks, and show me how to use them to join the great chorus of Creation. Amen

For all that we’ve already accomplished together during this challenging season, for all that we will accomplish together in the future, thank God and thank you. See you soon — and until then, let us be together for joy.

We hope you’ll join us in giving thanks to God for our leadership, especially the members of our Administrative Council, our Sunday School teachers and youth leaders, and our Food Pantry team. They, along with our staff and the staff of First Baptist Athletics and Beginnings Preschool and Child Care, have worked so hard this year to ensure that our ministry would continue in such unusual circumstances!
