\"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.\" Jeremiah 29:11 The New York Avenue Presbyterian Church 2022 ANNUAL STEWARDSHIP & CAPITAL CAMPAIGN Commitment Sunday November 21, 2021

OUR VISION A TRANSFORMATIVE CAMPAIGN …with two purposes and two pledges Following Christ into places of brokenness and joy, The Our History, Our Mission New York Avenue Presbyterian Church will do justice, treat all “The congregation has increasingly attracted persons seeking a church that is engaged creatively with kindness and mercy, and with the public and personal issues of the day and that struggles to be relevant to its urban location with all the challenges that entails.” (An excerpt from Capital Witness: A History of The New York walk humbly with God. Avenue Presbyterian Church in Washington, DC.) 1 The New York Avenue Presbyterian Church is a community of faith in the heart of Washington, DC. Our mission is to engage in God’s transforming work: challenging the powerful, standing with the oppressed, lifting up the broken-hearted, and making God’s love and justice visible by welcoming and loving all. The Forward In Faith - Together In Mission Campaign reflects our mission. The Campaign will allow us to continue the great work of the church to enable us to uniquely preserve our historic downtown DC location, embodying Christ's words: “If anyone would be first, they must be last of all and servant of all”. Mark 9:35 Two Purposes, Two Pledges The first purpose of Forward In Faith - Together In Mission is to financially support the day- to-day ministries of the congregation in 2022. This is a one-year commitment and is of primary importance. Our annual support is about “doing ministry” day after day, week after week throughout the year. The second purpose is to make a capital financial commitment which will be over and above your annual stewardship support. Capital funding will pay down our debt on the newly installed, energy efficient HVAC system and allow us to initiate a restroom renovation project. You have the opportunity to spread your gift over a 3-year period in order to make the most significant contribution possible. The two purposes of this campaign will provide the financial support to fuel another chapter of our historic legacy!
