Go Deep! Make Your Stewardship Pledge for 2015 Print E-mail
2014pledgebuttonThis is a special time in the life of our church, during which we envision hopes and dreams for our parish for the year ahead. Our stewardship campaign represents the way in which we financially support our St. Paul's and all it provides us, from physical space of our sanctuary and grounds, to the spiritual place it fills in our lives. Individually and as families, we pledge. Together, we share a vision.

You can make a financial pledge at any time of year, of course. However, our church budget is determined by the pledges received during our fall stewardship campaign. Pledging is an easy, but profoundly meaningful way to make tangible your commitment of faith to our community. Every pledge is important, and the participation of each and every church member is encouraged.

On October 12, The Rev. George Adamik gave a presentation about St. Paul’s growth plans for 2015 and the additional needs that growth will create. Click here for a replay of that discussion

Click the "Pledge Online" button to make your pledge to St. Paul's for calendar year 2015.

Matthew 22:34-46
Spiritual journeys begin in very simple ways. Usually they begin by a dawning awareness of some sense of connection that runs deeper than we anticipate. Or they begin again because there is a desire to grow deeper in our life...

A couple of months ago the committee that tends to our website wanted to put on the website brief biographies, little bios of the clergy. Each of the clergy were interviewed. One of the questions was, "What is your favorite song?"...
