All Saints' Mad-lib Pledge Card

All Saints' is a fun-loving and whimsy-loving congregation and we care deeply about reaching out to and building relationships with people in our congregation, neighborhood, country and world. Last year when we began our annual giving campaign, we tried to think of a way to gather our parishioners' intentions for financial contributions to the church that would connect with who we are as a congregation rather than just publishing a pledge card that basically only said "Tell us how much you plan to give." So, we came up with the idea of doing a mad-lib pledge card. If you take a look at the attached file, you'll get the idea and will probably remember having done something like this as a child or even as an adult. The responses we received ranged from hilarious to deeply touching and everything in between. It really provided our folks with an opportunity to think about what this community means to them and what it means to the world. And, we all had a great time in the process.
