Shining our Light: Annual Giving 2020
ANNUAL PLEDGE CARDS NOW AVAILABLE How would “generosity” be transformed if we remembered what Jesus is always calling us to do? As a faith community, we are indeed called to establish new priorities for ourselves and the church. Our 2020 annual pledge drive is more than funding the church’s budget. Rather, it is a change for transforming how we look at our calling as Christians. Prayerfully consider a commitment to St Timothy’s Episcopal Church and return your pledge card in the envelope to the office or place it in the offering plate.
2019 PLEDGES, FLOWER FUND, AND YEAR END GIFTS: Thank you all for your generosity in 2019. St Timothyʻs is wrapping up our budget year so thank you for sending your 2019 commitments toward Annual Giving, the Flower Fund, or other designated offering. Please consider a gift over and above your annual pledge. Gifts in thanksgiving or in memory of someone may be for general use or designated for a specific purpose such as outreach, altar appointments or flowers, or capital improvements. Our wish list includes carpeting and other improvements to the worship space and to Sumida Hall. Please see contact the church office and Fr. Dan regarding your gift or if you have any questions.
