November is Stewardship Emphasis Month. Each Sunday during November a member of our Stewardship Committee will speak on Parkview’s current Building Fund giving and also encourage you to participate in a new financial pledge for 2015. Our emphasis will culminate on Sunday night, November 23, at the Churchwide Thanksgiving Meal when all members and regular attenders of Parkview Baptist Church are invited to turn in new pledge cards. If you are unable to attend that night, you can still pledge by filling out a card that will be available to you throughout November. You may either mail or turn those into the church office at any time.
