Our Annual Stewardship Campaign begins this year on October 4 and concludes on November 1. Included in your packet is your Pledge Form and detailed information about the campaign, finances, and programs here at St. Matthew’s. Your responses are vital to financial planning for the many church programs, staffing needs, and outreach that enable the gifts St. Matthew’s brings to us and to the community around us. Thy are being mailed out this year.
The annual campaign reflects the financial aspects of holistic stewardship only, but it is a vital part of the whole. The wider mission of stewardship reflects how we care for all the gifts of our lives: our faith, our relationships, our physical being and the earth that nourishes us, and how we use all our talents, time and treasures to deepen and enrich our spiritual foundation.
Our Pledge Goal for the upcoming year is $425,000. Pledge forms are due by November 1 and can be returned in the offering plate, mailed, filled out on line, or dropped off to the church office. If you have questions, please reach out to Elizabeth Hays, Allison Bass, or any member of the Vestry.
Please join us as we begin this new season of intentional and heartfelt gratitude for all the gifts of our life and our parish.
