We believe Christian stewardship is a personal covenant between an individual and God.
In this covenant, we acknowledge that God is creator and owner of all things,
and everything we have is a gift from God to use for his glory.
God calls us to return a portion of our time, talents, and treasure to do his work in the world. God asks each of us to give him our tithe (Malachi 3:10). But, Christian stewardship is more than returning a portion of our gifts to God. It is about faith and trust in God. God wants us to commit our whole lives to His son Jesus Christ. When we make this commitment to Christ, our lives are transformed and our faith deepens.
The Visionary Fund was created by the Session several years ago to give church members an additional opportunity to make a planned gift to our church, above and beyond their Stewardship pledge. Fund assets enable the church to grow significantly in its mission and ministry. Legacy gifts help ensure that St. Charles Avenue Presbyterian Church will be engaged in ministry for generations to come.
Gifts and Memorials
The Gifts & Memorials Fund consists of contributions that are used to help defray the annual operating expenses and minor special projects of the church. These generally consist of specific donations, such as contributions to fund a special music event or property item, and unspecified contributions to the church in memory or honor of a loved one.
Please note: The church offers PayPal as a convenience, however, please be aware that PayPal collects a fee equal to 3% of your donation. For the church to receive the full benefit of your gift, please consider either mailing a check or ask your bank about automatic check disbursement. It’s usually a free service by which your bank cuts checks as you specify (weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc.) and mails them directly to the church.
