Welcome to the Annual Generosity Campaign for 2023
Our annual Generosity Campaign is a special time for Piedmont to dream big, set goals and then commit money and time to make those dreams a reality. As we move into 2023, our dream is bold and yet reachable: Grow Piedmont UU Church’s unique and needed ministry to Charlotte and Salisbury with the leadership of our new Minister (Rev. Dr. Amy) and our new Minister of Education and Outreach (Rev. Shakeisha); and hire a music director.
When we all pull together, we can make this happen.
Please consider how YOU support Piedmont’s programs in 2023 through your gifts of money and time. Piedmont UU Church’s future depends on all of us working and giving together.
Anyone is welcome to take part in Piedmont UU Church programs including worship and religious education. Members have additional privileges: to hold positions of leadership and to vote on congregational matters.
We require members to support the church through an annual financial pledge, unless they are unable to do so. If you are in that position and wish to continue to be a member, please talk with Rev. Dr. Amy to request a waiver from pledging
Pledge today to support Piedmont UU Church in 2023. Ready! Set! Grow!
Message from Our Lead Minister
As someone new to the Piedmont UU community, I am so impressed by the presence and actions of this amazing church! Piedmont UU has dedicated hours creating a strategic plan about how we want to move towards our future. We have already fulfilled some of our goals (like hiring a new full-time minister, for which I am quite grateful)! Our Annual Commitment Campaign is a wonderful opportunity to continue working towards our goals and support the important work of our church. Your contribution also ensures the smooth functioning of our facilities and staff, supports our ongoing programming, and provides the foundation for our social justice work.
I hope you will join me in pledging generously as our church continues
Rev. Dr. Amy
