"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
Matthew 6: 21
Transforming Generosity is the theme for pledging and giving this stewardship season, and our journey has begun.
Last year your Vestry made a significant investment in the growth and development of St. Mary's. And this investment has started to reap an incredible harvest. Now we are asking you - everyone one of you - to invest in St. Mary's right now. We need your pledges.
~ If you have pledged before, please increase your pledge, so that we may continue to grow the mission and ministries that have become so important to our members and to our community.
~ If you have not pledged before, now is the time. Make an ongoing pledge in support of St. Mary's mission and ministry.
Extravagant giving has the power to -
transform your heart - transform your life - transform our church.
And online pledging is easy. Just visit our online giving page to make a recurring gift (pledge) or a one-time donation. You can also fill out a pledge card. These are available at the church - in the lobby or in the Administration Office. Your gift will reflect God's generosity to you and your generosity to others.
The Christian's responsibilities of stewardship extend to the final disposition of material possessions after death. Every person, no matter how modest her or his circumstances, should have a valid will. Providing even a small bequest to the church through one's estate enables the church to continue its work.
St. Mary's has been blessed and benefited considerably by the generosity of former parishioners who have remembered the church in their wills. The clergy or Vestry office members will be happy to discuss particulars of bequests and appropriate ways to convey legacies to St. Mary's.
