Christian Stewardship is the responsible use of our individual talents and gifts. We use these gifts to support our worship service for the enjoyment of all, to maintain our grounds and property, to serve our community, and to promote God’s love in our own lives and those around us. These are sustained through the generosity of friends and visitors. Stewardship is about giving back to God, in thanksgiving for the many gifts we’ve been blessed with in our lives. Please consider how you can support St. Andrew’s with your talents, gifts and generosity.
Support – Life of St. Andrew’s
Stewardship is an integral part of our spiritual journey and our relationship with God. Your consideration and support in whatever is appropriate for you and your financial situation helps to support the ministries at St. Andrew’s.
The day-to-day operations of the chapel are almost entirely supported by the chapel service offerings and contributions to our building and maintenance fund. Weddings, baptisms and funeral contributions also support our expenses. Your generous support is greatly appreciated, and is the only way we can sustain the daily life of St. Andrew’s and meet the worship needs of our members.
Time and Talent
When we offer our time, talent, and special gifts that we each have to serve Christ in the work of St. Andrew’s and our greater communities; we share our passion, our life experiences, and our love as we seek to serve others. Through the giving of our time and talent, we realize the fullness of what it means to lead a Christian life, and be of service to others.
Special Gifts – Memorials, Capital Gifts…
You may make a gift of altar flowers for one of our Sunday services, provide a designated gift, or a memorial gift in honor of a loved one. These are wonderful ways to make a special gift and contribution, or for the pure joy of giving.
Planned Giving – Endowment Fund
For decades we have been blessed with the generous donations and gifts from those who have made it possible for St. Andrew’s to exist for our benefit today. As we look to the future as responsible stewards, we recognize the need to plan for the future.
To create a sustainable and solid financial future for St. Andrew’s, through planned giving, legacy donations and other bequests/investments, you can help to preserve the future health of our chapel and our greater community.
Contributions can be made to the St. Andrew’s-by-the-Sea Building and Maintenance Fund or Endowment Fund at any time.
By including St. Andrew’s in your estate planning, your stewardship as a legacy will help to provide the means and the inspiration for our sustainability, for years to come.
All are welcome to participate and support this important stewardship. We encourage you to contact our Vicar or one of our Executive Committee members at info@StAndrews-by-the-Sea.org.
