Stewardship Update

Nov. 21, 2021
Dear St. Paul’s Family,

Our Annual Pledge Campaign has been devoted to the theme Transforming Generosity. Everywhere you look at St. Paul’s you will find people giving generously of their time, talent, and treasure. This fall, some 40 of us, including our children, packaged 10,000 meals for Rise Against Hunger. Another group of dedicated disciples is donating their time and talent to the Habitat for Humanity build. And don’t forget the legion of volunteers who share their special gifts every day to keep this community alive and thriving.

Stewardship is truly a year-round ministry, inspired by our love of God and our love of our neighbor.  The annual pledge campaign is a big part of it, and we are grateful for your generous response. We are happy to report that as of Nov. 21,  115 donors had pledged $413,088.

With this strong start, we are optimistic that, with God’s help, we will have the necessary funds for the work that God is calling us to do. We look forward to supporting the beginnings of Fr. Caleb’s vision as outlined in his letter last week:  develop a creative approach to funding additional clergy and program staff to support our growing congregation in the areas of liturgy and music, pastoral care, community engagement, and Christian formation; attract and retain children, youth, and families; provide additional assistance in the areas of communications and livestreaming; and support the continued maintenance and enhancement of our campus.

Sunday, Nov. 7, the Feast of All Saints, marked the end of our formal pledge campaign. To everyone who has already pledged, we thank you. For those who have not yet pledged, we invite you to complete your pledge form or print a new copy using the link below, or even simpler,  there is a link to submit your 2022 annual pledge form online.

As we consider how God’s abundant generosity has transformed our lives, and how, through us, God’s abundant generosity will transform our communities and our world, let us remember some of the words from our October stewardship speakers:

  • Maria, who had lost everything in the 1998 Honduras hurricane, shared her last five eggs with strangers, giving from her heart. – Layne Dupree
  • Quoting Royster Hedgepeth, “I don’t want you to give until it hurts, I want you to give until it feels good.” – Chip Carter
  • Don’t look into your full refrigerator and say there is nothing to eat. It is good to be blessed, but it is better to be a blessing. – Leon Tillery
  • I have learned that when I obey the Lord and put my treasure where He calls me to, my heart follows. – Lisa Sanders-Park

In gratitude,
Your Stewardship Team

Here’s what the people of our parish have to say about what the the power of “transforming generosity” at St. Paul’s means to them.

Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:7)

Give until you are completely happy!
