Stewardship

This season at St. Alban’s we invite you to honor the Saints of your life by making your annual pledge… a pledge from your great store of gifts… with your saints in your mind and heart. Together we will remember those who touched us and moved us, those who shared God’s grace. With our saints in mind, we look back in gratitude and forward in confidence to what God continues to do with our energies and prayers and pledges.

A pledge is a promise to provide a certain amount of financial support to St. Alban’s during 2018.  Annual pledges and Sunday offerings are the sole source of funding for everything we do at St. Alban’s.  We receive no support from the Diocese and we do not have an endowment that is sufficient to fund day-to-day expenses.  Pledges allow us to budget wisely as we offer ministries and services to our congregation, the larger community, and the wider world.

A Letter from the Stewardship committee on October 24, 2017

Dear Parish Family,

On each of the last three Sundays we distributed the pledge packets for our 2018 stewardship effort. These packets, which were mailed to you if missed yours at church, contain a great message from your Stewardship Committee. We invite you to read and consider this year’s special message. If you have not already done so, click here to review the materials online.

If you haven’t gotten a packet, please let us or the parish office know and we’ll be sure to get one to you. You can also pick them up on Sunday after service.

 

Remember, we are continuing our tradition of Dedication Sunday, November 5th during our All Saints’ Day celebration. And this year we invite you to honor your saints who have made a difference in your life, as you make a pledge of time, talent, and treasure to St. Alban’s for 2018.  We will all bring our pledge cards, reflecting our stewardship offerings, to the altar at Communion. We celebrate the gifts God has given us as we honor the saints of our lives!  If you won’t be present on Dedication Sunday, you can drop your pledge card in the collection plate at any other service, deliver it to the parish office, or mail it. You can also pledge online. It’s easy and confidential!

We also invite you to read through some additional information on stewardship and pledging which you may find helpful in considering how, and how much, you will want to pledge for the coming year. This may well help inform your choices.  Just visit our website and follow the Giving link.  You’ll find Father Tim’s warm and wise stewardship sermon here from this past Sunday, as well as a fresh video from a member of our parish family. Watch for more these soon!

We are so grateful for the ongoing and generous contributions of our parish family in support of all the good works of St. Alban’s ministries.

 

Faithfully yours,

 

Your Stewardship Committee

A Letter from the Stewardship committee on October 12, 2017
Dear Parish Family,
Last Sunday your Stewardship Committee began distributing pledge packets, launching our 2018 stewardship effort. These packets contain a fresh approach to stewardship that we invite you to join.
 
How can each of us honor the saints of our lives as we pledge our gifts of time, talent, and treasure to St. Alban’s for 2018?
Over the next few weeks as we think about how we can contribute to
St. Alban’s ministries and family life, we would like to concentrate on the saints in our own lives who have given us so much. How can we honor them
through our fresh commitment to
St. Alban’s?
Please take a close look at your stewardship materials in prayerfully considering this question.
We’re planning to make our All Saints Day experience on November 5th a joyful celebration of our dedication of Time, Talent, and Treasure.
This will be an especially spirited and beautiful service with great music and flowers, plus the celebration of our saints, a fine sermon and a hearty parish breakfast!
We ask that you return your pledges on or before November 5th, so we can honor all your saints as we together bless our pledges for 2018. 
And, in an effort to bring a focus to Stewardship on the afternoon of All Saints Day, your Vestry and Stewardship Committee will gather to make calls to all parish members who have not yet returned their pledge cards. This will bring to a culmination our “One Sunday, One Celebration . . . for all our saints”.
So please pick up your packet this Sunday, and join St. Alban’s 2018 stewardship celebration.
Faithfully yours,
Your Stewardship Committee
