Sharing in the Kingdom – Stewardship 2019

2019 Pledge Cards are now being accepted in the Church Office.

Pledge cards can be mailed to the Church, placed in the Sunday offertory plate or they can be made online at cotgs.org. If you need another card, you can pick one up at the Church Office or in the pew rack in Church on Sunday.

Please mail or bring your pledge cards to:

Thank You!

“Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you..” ~Luke 6:38
