Stewardship

stewardshipThe Stewardship Committee develops and delivers the Church of the Holy Spirit annual stewardship campaign.

The campaign usually kicks off with a letter sent to parishioners in September that includes an invitation to our Parish Celebration Dinner in late October. We ask at this time that parishioners begin to pray about their stewardship response for the following year. In early October, various members of the parish will speak to the congregation about what the parish means to them and why they are active supporters of stewardship. Then pledge packets are sent out in November, including a summary of the previous year’s budget and pledge income.

In addition to facilitating the stewardship campaign, this committee also writes the “Stewardship Corner” articles that appear in the Church of the Holy Spirit newsletter, Together. The goal is to help parishioners discover that stewardship is not merely a once-a-year appeal for money. There are many ways to support the parish through your gifts of time, talent, and treasure all year long. To get involved or learn more about stewardship at Church of the Holy Spirit, speak to the Rector or one of the church wardens, or call the parish office.
