When you make a financial pledge, it allows you to practice the spiritual discipline of stewardship and it allows the vestry to do the same as they prayerfully plan our budget for ministry and mission.
This form is just to tell us your pledge, not to pay it. To actually make a payment of your pledge, you can do so in the offering plate on Sunday, mailing or dropping off a check at the church office, or by using our secure online giving portal at stalbanswaco.org/give.
STEWARDSHIP FAST FACTS- The pledges of our members support 80% of our budget. - In 2018, our average pledge was $3,329, or $277/month. The median annual pledge was $1,820 (about $151/mo). - For 2019, the vestry has identified three key priorities for our budget: turn the Curate position into a permanent Associate Rector, call a part-time youth minister, and add a part-time staff member to assist with communications and administration. - A 15% increase in pledging would allow us to meet these goals. If you pledged last year, thank you! We invite you to consider increasing your pledge for 2019.
