  • Stewardship Season at St. Paul’s:  Scripture teaches us that we have been entrusted with the careful stewardship of all that has been given to us—our soul, our domestic relationships, our earthly possessions, our tallents, etc.  As Christians were are also encouraged to share a portion of our blessings with the Household of God.   So, every fall we are reminded of our calling to be good stewards, and in this larger context we are asked to make a “pledge” of how much money we hope to give to the parish during the course of the upcoming year.  We use “Pledge Cards” on which to record this amount, then we turn them into the Stewardship Committee who maintains records in confidence.  The Vestry basis our new year’s budgeting on the information received.  If a “pledger’s” circumstances change during the course of the year, their “pledges” may be lowered (or raised!) accordingly.


Coming up on November 5th!!
