Make Your 2019 Stewardship Pledge

The General Thanksgiving

~ a stewardship prayer ~
Almighty God, Father of all mercies,
we your unworthy servants give you humble thanks
for all your goodness and loving-kindness
to us and to all whom you have made.
We bless you for our creation, preservation,
and all the blessings of this life;
but above all for your immeasurable love
in the redemption of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ;
for the means of grace, and for the hope of glory.
And, we pray, give us such an awareness of your mercies,
that with truly thankful hearts we may show forth your praise,
not only with our lips, but in our lives,
by giving up our selves to your service,
and by walking before you
in holiness and righteousness all our days;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
to whom, with you and the Holy Spirit,
be honor and glory throughout all ages. Amen.

Why Annual Pledges are important

Pledging allows our vestry, St. Martin’s governing board, to plan for our parish community in the same way that you plan for your household. The vestry sets a budget based on the total amount pledged to St. Martin’s. And while regular giving that is not pledged is important, a pledge allows the vestry to plan more accurately for the programming and ministries St. Martin’s can accomplish. 

An annual pledge submitted in the Autumn for the next year helps us to set an accurate budget, make our payroll, fund our programming and outreach, and plan for the future. Pledges fund the general operating budget that is set and approved by the vestry each year.

A giver may give weekly, monthly, or annually, through stock transfers, online, with cash, giving envelopes and/or checks. To provide you a record of your giving for tax purposes we will need to receive your gift in the form of a check, or in a numbered giving envelope.  If you give through stock transfer please have your broker identify you as the source of the stock so we can give proper credit.

Restricted giving, i.e. gifts designated for specific ministries in the church, are discouraged unless the person has already pledged. As a community, we need to work together to finance our common life and mission first before we focus on individual passions and interests.

An annual pledge to St. Martin’s is required:

    • To be a voting member of St. Martin’s
    • To serve on the Vestry or other leadership and decision making bodies.
    • To serve in liturgical and ministry roles.
