2020 Annual Stewardship & Funding the Future
Making your annual pledge supports the day-to-day operations of St. Mary’s and retains the vitality of the parish.
Contributing to Funding the Future will support repairs and upgrades to our church building and organ and cover the cost of a church van. Click here for conceptual drawings of church improvements.
One Campaign, Two Pledges
2020 Annual Stewardship
To fully fund the vibrant ministries of St. Mary’s, we are asking all our church members to pray and consider sustaining their current giving and increasing if they can. Our goal for Annual Stewardship is to raise $2 million.
Funding the Future Capital Campaign
The goal of Funding the Future is to raise $6 million over three-years for needed improvements to our existing facilities, the construction of a new mission and ministry building, and the retirement of our rectory debt. Ten percent of funds raised will be given to the outreach ministries of St. Mary’s. Our stewardship appeal runs in tandem with the capital campaign. We seek to raise these additional funds for sustaining and expanding ministry in the future.
Contributions to the Funding the Future are one-time commitments that are OVER and ABOVE your annual pledge to the current ministry and mission of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church and can be paid in full or over the course of a three-year period ending on December 31, 2022.
Pray, Learn, Discuss, Pledge
We need everyone’s continued participation as we continue to grow as a community of faith. Please keep these upcoming milestone events marked on your calendar.
