2023 Stewardship Campaign
This is such an exciting and joyful time in the life of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church! While there are still COVID concerns, we are able to engage in-person more readily than last year. St. Paul’s faithfully went through the search and call of a new pastor who has brought renewed energy to our congregational life. We’ve paid off and shredded our mortgage and there is momentum forward. We are in a more joyful time, like we’ve crossed a bridge into a better place. In this way, we’re like the Israelites who crossed into the Promised Land, but had much more to do for God. And like them, we’re still on a journey with more bridges to cross and more to reach! St. Paul’s is a blessing to the people in our congregation and community because of the support of the congregation.
This is traditionally a time of the year when we as a congregation fill out a pledge card or an estimate of giving for the next year. This provides the leaders of St. Paul’s an accurate estimate for next year’s budget to fund the many teams and ministries. In addition to our current ministries and fixed costs, many of our teams have been dreaming and planning for ways to grow our discipleship, address needed building repairs, broaden our outreach, bless more who are in need and improve our worship. However, these dreams cannot happen without the generosity of the people of St. Paul’s.
We are asking every family to complete this estimate of giving for 2023 so our council and ministries can plan for the future. For some this might be a brand new faith step to make a commitment for God’s work at St. Paul’s. For others this might be something you’ve done in the past and want to continue. For either, we know this will be a blessing to you and for our ministry together.
We thank you for all you have done in the past and all that God will lead us, joyfully, into the future! Definitely if you have any questions, please feel free to contact the church staff through the form below!
