At St. Andrew’s, we believe that all we have has been entrusted to us by God. Our response to God’s generosity and gift is to care for and support God’s work in the world through the stewardship of our lives. How we use our time, the gifts of our hands and heart, and the treasure of lives, matters.
How we fulfill this commitment is up to each of us, keeping in mind that giving back to God a portion of what He has given to us is crucial to spiritual health.
“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:7)
God has provided everything that we have, so the act of returning a portion of this gift to God should be done in a prayerful manner as a show of faith. The point isn’t about how much we give, but the gratitude with which the gift is made. When we give freely to God’s work through the work of our parish, we reap bountifully-both inside our parish, and externally through our outreach programs.
Pledges can be made weekly, monthly, quarterly or annually. They can be declared by completing a pledge card and returning it to the parish office. Individual pledge amounts are confidential. St. Andrew’s provides an annual statement to you to help with deducting your contributions from your taxable income. Pledge commitments may be fulfilled in weekly, monthly, quarterly or annual installments and may be paid via cash or check.
