Stewardship at St. Peter’s

Stewardship is about being grateful, responsible stewards of the gifts we receive from God.

 The tradition of giving back to God and to the church a portion of our treasure comes from the Biblical practice of “tithing,” which means to give back a tenth of our earnings to God (Numbers 18:26). The EpiscopWidowMitesal Church sees stewardship as more than simply contributing money to the church; it’s also about contributing time and talents, and volunteering for ministry and mission. There are many ways to give of time and talent — see our ministries pages  for opportunities.  Stewardship is about reaching out to build relationships from a perspective of abundance instead of scarcity.  We are grateful to God for what we have been given, and we give back joyfully to God and God’s church with an attitude of gratitude.

 

It is up to the people of this parish to support the ministries of our church.  This month each household will receive a 2016 Pledge Card.  Please prayerfully consider making a pledge of support to St. Peter’s for 2016.  We are hoping that 100% of all households will make some commitment of support for our parish.

 

On Stewardship Thanksgiving Sunday, October 18, we began to receive Stewardship Pledge Cards from parishioners.  Thank you if you have already turned in your 2016 Pledge Card.  If you have not yet given your Pledge to St. Peter’s, you may place it in the offering plate this Sunday or send it to the Parish Office to the attention of the Stewardship Committee.  All Pledge Cards are asked to be turned in by November 15, 2015.  Based on what is received the Vestry will craft the parish budget for 2016.
