The 2013 Stewardship Campaign:
Keeping the doors of St. Bart’s open for all.
Do you have to be a member to pledge?
While pledging—giving on the record, by commitment—is certainly a definition of membership, many who are not formal members support St. Bart’s. Commitment takes many forms, and we welcome all to be a part of our community.
What is the 2013 Stewardship Campaign?
The Stewardship Campaign is the collective financial support of parishioners, friends and visitors who believe in the mission or have been touched by St. Bart’s in some way. In the spiritual sense, the Stewardship Campaign is a way for you to put your values and faith into action.
What is a pledge of record and why is it so important?
A pledge of record is your formal annual declaration that you will support the operations and programs at St. Bart’s. You are encouraged to consider giving in proportion to what you have been given, literally and figuratively.
A pledge of record is important because it allows the Church to plan a fiscally responsible budget based on what has been pledged. As faithful stewards, we make every effort to only spend what we have received.
Why pledge now?
Pledging early lets us know that we can count on your support. Of course, you may increase or decrease your pledge later on to reflect your personal financial situation.
