What is “Stewardship”?

Stewardship refers to the commitment we make to use our resources in ways that are grounded in the profound understanding that all that we are and all that we have comes from God.   With that mindset, we are called to share our abundance in service to God’s world and to care for creation.  

Parish members are asked to make a meaningful annual pledge to provide financial support to the ministries of St. George’s, in recognition that in so doing we are committing ourselves to this community of love, faith and service.  

Each and every member is also invited – and encouraged – to lend their talents, insights, energy and time to the array of activities that bind us together as community and make our love known in the world around us.

How are our funds used?   

 Our pledges support the wealth of ministries at the core of our St. George’s community:

  • Worship
  • Music and the arts
  • Spiritual formation and education for children, youth and adults
  • Fellowship and hospitality
  • Social justice discernment and activism
 

Our pledges maintain our building and grounds – within which we house:

  • Our worship services
  • Hosting of community groups such as AA, arts and education programs, youth programming
  • Social gatherings for members and community

Our pledges support our ministries to the wider community and those in need:

  • Grants to local food pantries and service programs for the unhoused and under-resourced 
  • Organizing and supplies for a neighboring church’s meal program and thrift store 
  • Service projects by our youth group
  • Grants to support immigrants and refugees

Where do our funds come from?

Members’ pledges support 77% of our total budget.  

We are committed to increasing the number of our members/attendees who are supporting the church with financial pledge commitments – aiming to get to at least 75 pledges for 2023. 

How do I participate?  

We invite our members to make a commitment of faith by offering an annual pledge.  

Payments on that pledge can then be fulfilled in a variety of ways:  

  • recurring online payments or bank-transfers
  • a one-time annual payment
  • payments by check when attending church services
  • payments by cash, using envelopes assigned 

See the buttons to the right to participate online.

 

Weekly Stewardship Reflection

Malachi 4:1-2a

When have you experienced grace, at a time when you’ve struggled and most needed it? 
When have you had the opportunity to offer grace to another – and been fed by doing so?
