It's Time to Pledge!


See the News and Notes, posted at:  https://www.cecmadison.org/epistle_pdf_files, for information about our financial needs.

On that same page, you will find a link to a pledge card you can download to fill in, and mail to the church, or drop it at the office, or fold it and put it in the plate on November 17!

Please respond if at all possible, by Sunday, November 17.  (Vestry meets on the 19th and we will need a sense of where things are by that time.)

Thank you so very much!
