Each year the session must adopt a balanced budget to support the ministry areas of First Presbyterian Church Kerrville. The budget is based primarily on the pledges being offered and the anticipated expenses for the coming year. Your pledges and giving are very import-ant and become your statement of faith showing that you value the mission and ministry of the church. Numbers on the reverse side reflect current budget numbers as the 2023 budget is still in development.
2022 has seen us continue to move past the Coronavirus challenges of recent years. We have enjoyed Jack and Barbie’s presence in our congregation but rejoice in the fact that a perma-nent pastor is on the horizon, to complement the excellent staff which we maintain. Programs are continuing to grow in numbers as was evidenced in the successful completion of the mini-cam-paign to support construction of the final home in the Maude Jennings Habitat for Humanity sub-division. Great opportunities await us at FPC Kerrville, and Stewardship season is the time to help us plan for an even better 2023.
2023 will bring the 20th anniversary of our “New” Sanctuary as well as the 100th anniversary of the Schreiner Chapel. Let’s honor these two to-gether by celebrating the history of FPC Kerrville and the steadfast commitment to our mission of service in the community.
Your pledges and gifts enable us to expand our services to those in need both locally and glob-ally. With God’s continued blessings, we truly are: A congregation building a community of disciples, growing toward God-centered worship, Christ-centered service and Spirit-led lives.
Won’t you join us and answer the call?

What is a Pledge?
A pledge is an estimate of giving in a particular year. It is not a binding contract. It is an intention you make with God and the church to live a certain way and give a cer-tain amount from God’s blessings in your life.
Why do you want to know how much money I’m going to give?
Your pledge makes it possible for the Session to create a spending plan for ministries, staff, mission, worship and congregational care in the coming year. Your pledging is important to fiscal planning.
How will my pledge make a difference?
Pledging is a spiritual discipline in which you say with all areas of your life, “Jesus Christ is Lord.” Also, by pledg-ing you can invest in something that has a lasting value that changes lives and makes a difference for advancing God’s purpose.
What does it mean to “tithe”?
Simply put, tithing is giving one-tenth of one’s income. Under Mosaic Law tithing was an obligation. The Christian understanding of giving is to give cheerfully according to one’s means. It is always sound in making a pledge to ask, “How much can I give and still meet my other obligations?” Tithing is a worthy goal, with our treasure but also with our time. How much are we willing to give of our entire selves?
