2017 Reoccurring Stewardship Donations
When does the stewardship process begin?
2017 Stewardship Pledge Cards were mailed to all registered Parishioners' homes in November. If you have not received a Pledge Card, please contact the Church Office. Information requested will include the names of family members, ages of the children, a list of activities in which members will participate during the upcoming year, and a pledge of a financial contribution for the coming year. The pledge listed on the card will support the church for the coming year. The pledge can be paid weekly, quarterly, monthly or yearly. Weekly or monthly offerings may work better as it is easier to manage small, regular contributions rather than large accumulated amounts. It is also easier for the Parish to operate the Church if stewardship donations are consistent throughout the year.
Payments begin in January and continue through December for a given year.
Who makes a pledge?
The Stewardship Commitment is completed per individual or family.
- A family pledge may include a husband and wife with or without dependent(s) or a single parent with or without dependent(s).
- A single working adult over 18 years of age without dependents should make his or her own commitment.
- Family membership allows each Orthodox spouse voting privileges in parish matters.
When is the stewardship pledge effective?
Pledges made for 2017 are effective from January through December of 2017.
When should I return my Pledge Card/Form?
The Stewardship Committee encourages all stewards to return their 2017 Pledge Cards by Sunday, December 4, 2016. If you have missed this deadline, please send in your card as soon as you can.
What happens if my circumstance changes during the year?
If your financial situation changes, you can change your pledge by advising the Priest, Parish Council President or Parish Council Treasurer.
All pledges should be paid in full for the good of the Church. Fulfilling your commitment allows the Church to appropriately budget for her needs and ensures that stewards maintain their status as stewards in good standing. However, a steward in difficult circumstances may at anytime privately contact the Parish Priest to lower or discontinue their pledge until circumstances allow for a return to their original commitment.
