Our Story of Generosity: Sharing God’s Abundance

Update 11/17:  Our heartfelt thanks to those of you who have already responded to our stewardship call to share your abundance and make an investment in the richness of the ministry here at Western Presbyterian Church.  We have received 30 pledges, for a total of $164,424, almost 40% of our $420,000 goal.  You can track weekly progress toward our goal on the poster located in the Courtyard Room.  If you have not made your pledge, you can do so by clicking on “Give” on the Western website, or drop a pledge card in the offering plate during the Sunday service.  We are blessed with the gifts of so many here at Western; your financial investment in our church will keep us growing and strengthening our caring, supportive community of faith.

God’s Spirit is alive at Western! Thanks to your generous investments, Western provides this loving, supportive, safe place to explore our faith and values.

This past year, you joined us as we launched our strategic vision to build a nurturing and growing congregation, to create connections with one another and with God, to commit ourselves to peace, social justice and equality, and to create a loving, supportive, safe place to explore our faith. You may have noticed that more people are joining you in support of these Christian values at Western.

To continue to increase the reach and impact of the Western way, we invite you to invest once again in this family of faith, and hope this year you might consider making a pledge to the church, as we work toward our $420,000 pledge goal.

Your pledge will breathe greater life into our shared vision for community life, creating connections, our commitment to peace and social justice, and creating a supportive place to explore our faith.

Donate a Sleeping Bag or Fruit Offering for Miriam’s Kitchen Sunday

Help our neighbors stay warm this winter by donating a sleeping bag. Bring a sleeping bag to worship on November 19 during Miriam’s Kitchen Sunday, or order a new sleeping bag online:

  • Use MK’s Amazon wish list and have it shipped directly to MK. (Wishlist doesn’t have the sleeping bag? Buy directly here and send to Miriam’s Kitchen, 2401 Virginia Ave, NW, Washington DC 20037)
  • When you checkout, select the option to add a gift message that indicates the donation is connected to Western. You could copy and paste this: With love and peace from Western Presbyterian Church.

Can’t bring a sleeping bag? We’ll also be collecting a Thanksgiving Fruit Offering that will be donated to Miriam’s Kitchen for our guests and neighbors. Please bring long-keeping fruits or vegetables such as apples, oranges, pears, or winter squash–Miriam’s kitchen requests no bananas or grapes.

Miriam’s no longer accepts item donations but instead relies on donations purchased through their Amazon wish list and provided by their Rapid Response Team. These are now the only ways to donate in-kind items to Miriam’s Kitchen.

If you’re interested in joining the MK Rapid Response Team, they would be grateful to have you. By joining, you agree to receive an email if and when an urgent in-kind item need ever pops up. If they’re running dangerously low on sunscreen, for example, they might send an email to our Rapid Response Team and ask for travel-sized bottles of sunscreen to be dropped off at Miriam’s Kitchen during a specific window of time.

There’s no requirement to respond to these emails, and they don’t anticipate sending them frequently. If you’d like to join the Rapid Response Team, please email
