How Can I Support the Campaign?
Giving to the Remembering. Sharing. and Becoming! campaign is an important decision. We realize your gift may be one of the most significant charitable donations you make in your lifetime. We encourage you to pray about your pledge before deciding what you intend to give.
We ask that you consider the following:
Recall the blessings God has given to you, remembering that everything we have belongs to God, and our role is to be a good steward of His resources.
Remember the impact that can be made for God’s Kingdom through your sacrificial gift. Our church has a unique calling to serve God in our community.
Bear in mind that every gift, regardless of size, is an important contribution to God’s work through our church.
Discuss the practical and spiritual implications of your family’s participation with all members of your family.
As with the annual appeal, we need 100-percent parish participation in the capital campaign to continue the planning process for a larger church. Please remember that the commitments to the capital campaign are in addition to what you are currently giving to the annual appeal.
The chart shows how you could fulfill your commitment in weekly, monthly or annual contribution.
|Annual Household Income||5% Monthly Commitment||5% Annual Commitment||Total 5%
What are the benefits of participating in the campaign?
- Your participation provides an opportunity to ask yourselves, “How does God want to use me and my resources to help build up our parish?”
- Participation in the campaign gives us an opportunity to be part of a total parish effort that strengthens our connection to the faith community.
- Feel a great sense of accomplishment when we begin to see the fruits of our efforts with a new sanctuary and expanded ministries.
- Your contributions are generally tax deductible.
Want to use auto-pledge?
Auto-pledge is a monthly or bi-weekly deduction from your checking account with the sum transferred to the church. It can handle your annual stewardship pledge amount and/or your capital campaign pledge amount. Make your life simple by using this monthly system and avoid writing checks. You can select the beginning of the month or mid-month for withdrawals. Christine Gemmel, business manager of the church, can set this up.
Please contact the Administrative Offices at the Church at (727) 799-4605. You will need your bank routing number as well as your checking account number.
