Annual Giving

Why I am Taking a Leap of Faith

Why We Give

The Rev. Wes Shields, Rector

"It is once again time for our annual stewardship campaign. When we talk about stewardship we are always referring to how we spend our time, talent, and treasure. The three are inextricably linked. God asks us for all three, because if not, we will simply be more generous with that which we value least, or the one that we feel we have in abundance.


I remember when Laura and I got married, I had just started seminary and on the first day they took us into a room and said that on average we would graduate with $35,000 in debt from our time in seminary. Right then and there I decided that wouldn't be me, although truth be told, I had probably already made that decision, I just didn't have those numbers in front of me. "

How We Are Called

Karen McIntyre, Senior Warden

"I was thinking ... How about if I bought God something? We could golf together at Meadowbrook Golf Course and have a drink for about $140.00 or $7,280 per year. Tickets for two at Riverside Theater for about $200.00 or $2,400 for 12 shows. Maybe coffee, milk, eggs and bacon at Publix and God can cook breakfast for about $29.00 weekly or $1,508 per year. Normal things in our times are expensive, and I want to encourage you to commit your time, your talents, and your financial resources to the work of God's kingdom in and through St. Augustine. Your financial support will continue to help our ministries flourish. We are the body of Christ, we are the Church. Come and worship, come and serve, commit to being the church. "


Where Our Money Goes

Stephen Connell, Treasurer

"The first place our money goes is to provide a place for people of faith to worship in a setting which conveys the significance of our beliefs, the historic liturgical traditions of our religion. 

The second use is to facilitate our efforts spread the Word of our Lord throughout the community.

The third use is to do for others less fortunate whose needs can be met through monetary assistance as well as volunteer giving of one’s time and talents."

Any questions regarding giving
may be
directed to:

“Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the first fruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.”

Please put aside to some time today to look through your Stewardship package. May we all come together and give generously. We need everyone’s support of St. Augustine’s this year more than ever before. May God bless you for your generosity!
