God has given us many gifts, and we are called to be good stewards, caretakers, of all that we have been given. We have been blessed with time, talents, and material treasure. Part of our practical and spiritual life together at St. George’s involves sharing the gifts we have received. This sharing is an opportunity to show our thanks to God, to help us grow in faith and love, and to support the ongoing efforts to be a compassionate, faithful community of God’s love in this place at this time.
- You can give of your time by simply showing up, being here for worship and fellowship, by getting involved in the many ministries and activities of this place. Just your presence can be a blessing to others.
- You can give of your talents by offering skills and abilities in worship, as a member of one the ministry commissions, and in many other volunteer capacities.
- You can give of your treasure through monetary donations or other property or estate gifts.
The “Giving” section of this website is really focused on the third category of gifts that involve money and material resources. See “New to Giving” for a brief summary of why we give money to the church and why it’s so important. See “planned giving” for ideas about how you can think long-term about charitable gifts to the church via wills, trusts, and other financial instruments (and possibly save money at the same time). See our stewardship campaign page for information about our pledge campaigns generally and details on the 2018 campaign as they come out.
Whether you put a few dollars in the plate once in a while, pledge to make regular financial donations to our annual budget, donate a portion of your estate to the church, make a one-time donation to some of our special appeals, or add to our trust funds, we thank you for your gifts. By sharing what we have been given we, together, are blessed to share the gift of God’s love with the world.
