Beginning October 2, financial pledge cards will begin their journey into the congregation. We invite you to faithfully pledge a significant percentage of income in thanksgiving to God and in support of St. George’s 2017 operating budget. We also hope this process helps our community grow in faith and grow in our relationships to one another.
“Giving As One, Growing As One” is our mission to support God’s glory—how we see God’s presence in our world for 2017. One by one by one—in the time of Moses (Exodus 35:21): “and they came forward—every one whose heart stirred him up, and every one whose spirit was willing.” Pledges make up 90% of our mission contribution. Last year, 70% of the congregation came forward (a St. George’s record). With more “ones” we can make a goal of 75%.
