For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.

ROMANS 12:4-5

Growing Together

From Fr. Wes ...

As we look forward to growing together as a parish I am excited about the many possibilities I see before us. We are hoping to bring on more clergy in various capacities, grow our outreach programs, expand our offerings of Adult Christian Education, and also expand our offerings to youth and children. There is no shortage of needs and opportunities in our community and our parish.

 

We have been extremely blessed to have so many new faces in the parish that are bringing new ideas and energy to our ministries. Sadly so many of our fellow Episcopal churches are struggling in terms of finances and attendance. We should be filled with gratitude for the blessings that God has poured out on this parish. We have grown tremendously over the last two years and we have run large surpluses financially while still paying out several hundred thousand dollars for much-needed repairs to our buildings. 

 

I truly believe that God is at work in this place and I hope you will continue to support that good work. 

 

Yours in Christ,

Wes

Do You Have Questions About Your Pledge?

What is pledging? Pledging is your heartfelt, faithful spiritual practice to financially support St. Augustine’s ministries and programs in the year ahead. It is a personal example of gratitude that you have for all our God has given to you and your family. 

Why not simply make non-pledge contributions? Pledges provide the Vestry with an estimate of expected income essential to the preparation of the church’s annual budget. St. Augustine’s simply cannot operate and thrive without a reasonable estimate of its financial resources. Your pledge reinforces the importance of God and St. Augustine’s in your life.

How much should I pledge? Your pledge is a personal decision between God, you and your family. It should be grounded in your faith, love and commitment to God’s work through St. Augustine’s. It requires reflection, prayer, and priority. Traditionally, we consider a pledge amount that is 10% of our income. Scripture tells us: “A tenth of the produce of the land, whether grain or fruit, is the Lord's, and is holy.” (Leviticus 27:30) 

These and other questions are answered in our Stewardship Q & A document.
