Annual Pledge Campaign - Rector/Vicar Sample Letter 2 for Pledgers and Non-Pledgers

These  are sample letters written by a priest in charge of a congregation during the Annual Pledge Campaign segmented into two groups in the congregation, Pledgers and Non-Pledgers.  This letter is not accompanied by a pledge card and a return envelope, because those are distributed during the Sunday morning service on the Pledge Ingathering Date (Commitment Sunday).  Therefore, note that the congregation includes an invitation  specific date for collecting and blessing the pledge cards during the Sunday morning liturgy.  We encourage church's not to receive pledges until the "ingathering" date because there often is much more to be said during the campaign before one discerns the fullness of their annual pledge.
