2021 Annual Pledge Giving
Generous and loving God, we come to you in thanksgiving, knowing that all we are and all that we have is a gift from you. In faith and love, help us to do your will. Amen
Dear Family of St. Paul’s,
Thank you for your faith-filled generosity to St. Paul’s in 2020. Your gifts of time, talent and treasure help to make St. Paul’s the warm, loving community we all know and long to enjoy again in person. From worship and glorious music to study groups, pastoral care, fellowship, Christian formation and outreach to the wider community, this is truly a place where God’s Holy Spirit is at work.
Trusting in God’s grace, and recognizing God’s abundant blessings, we invite you to join us in continuing to support and grow St. Paul’s mission and ministry in 2021 by making a financial pledge. 2021 will be an exciting year for us as we welcome our new rector and implement an ambitious Strategic Plan— a vision for growing together in faith.
In order for us to be faithful to our mission of open hearts and open doors, we depend upon your continued faith-filled generosity. Prayerfully consider what God is calling you to give.
The Biblical standard of giving is a tithe of 10% of your household income. This number is rooted in the theology that everything we have is a gift from God, and the tithe is sign of gratefulness to God for God’s abundant blessings.
If you are already tithing, consider increasing your tithe. If you are not tithing, consider step tithing. Start at a level of generosity you feel comfortable with and move up incrementally. If you are not ready to tithe, make an annual pledge, in proportion to your income, as an offering of thankfulness for God’s blessings.
Your pledge, although not a legal document, helps us develop a budget for the coming year. Our budget goal for 2021 is a minimum of $548,000. Pledges may be increased or decreased as your personal circumstances permit. Your tithe, or pledge, is an investment in St. Paul’s future. If you want to see the mission of St. Paul’s thrive and grow, be as generous as you can. You’ll be glad you did.

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!
