Giving to WPC

The ministries and operations of Westwood Presbyterian Church rely solely on the faithful giving of our members and friends. All that we have has been entrusted to us by God and we are simply stewards or caretakers, using our time, talent and treasure on behalf of God’s work on the earth. Your contributions sustain the church’s ministries, our outreach (through PATH, Westside Food Bank, FosterAll, Habitat for Humanity, SPY and many others), and the operation and maintenance of our church home. We are not a large church, but the generosity of the 175 households that make up the WPC family enables us to do amazing things across our community.

Pledging

Each year in the spring, members and friends are invited to make a pledge (estimate of giving) for the coming program year (July 1, 2018-June 30, 2019). Jesus said, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also (Matthew 6:21). Making a pledge is a spiritual discipline in which we intentionally and prayerfully consider how we use our financial resources. The Session of our church determines our ministry priorities and sets the annual budget based on the pledged commitments offered by the congregation.


We are grateful for every person who is able to contribute to our shared mission and ministry. Quarterly and year-end statements are sent to all who give. If you would like to make a financial commitment or gift to the church, please use the links below.
