This year our Every Member Commitment will present us with two important opportunities.


This critically important financial promise to Christian Temple is the engine that drives our ministry. When our members are generous, AND willing to say ahead of time through this pledge, what we plan to give over the coming year, our congregational leadership is able to gather those promises and make ambitious, but also fiscally responsible, plans for our ministry between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019.

We will receive these commitments between April 8 and May 6th. And, we will celebrate our generosity with an after worship Cinco de Mayo happy hour on May 6th in the gathering!


The Horch family lived around the corner from Christian Temple for many years. We got to know Tracy (the mom) when she brought her kids to the play group that met in our old nursery, and would stop on the way in and out of the building to visit. Since then the Horches have been active in our neighborhood.

Late last winter, Keely, the Horch’s youngest of three kids, suffered a massive stroke after contracting an aggressive bacterial infection. Thankfully, the stroke didn’t affect Keely’s cognitive function. But the twelve year old girl who loves to bake and play soccer is now a quadriplegic with many special needs.

We know that the needs of the community are many. But we plan to offer us all an opportunity to make a gift to the Horch family- along with our annual commitment-to help them defray their enormous expenses and to make sure they know Christian Temple still cares for them.

Generosity makes everything possible and makes our hearts sing! Please be generous in your support of Christian Temple and the community that graciously receives our ministry.
