Pledging and why it matters
We hope that you will offer your annual pledge as a sign of God's generosity in your life and of your commitment to the growth and fellowship of St. Mary's. There are a variety of ways to figure out how much to pledge:
The biblical standard is the tithe, or 10 percent of your income. Many people begin by pledging 1 precent and then increasing it by a percent every year or two. Some figure the amount they spend on vacation and give an equal amount to God. Others figure $1 per week for every $1,000 of income. Perhaps the most important thing is to consider it prayerfully and thoughtfully.
Did you know there are a number of ways to offer of your pledge? You can fill out a pledge card and put it in the offering plate. Or, you can let us know by filling out the form below. More than anything else, your pledge says "I am here and a part of the St. Mary's community! I am thankful to God for the gifts I have been given!"
