Giving at SCAPC

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.

Annual Pledging

Each fall, our Stewardship Campaign invites members to make an annual financial pledge to support SCAPC’s ministries. These funds are allocated to our local and global mission partners as well as the worship and fellowship of our church and spiritual formation of its members. In the current year, approximately 300 households have affirmed their commitment by pledging a total of $1,446,000. To learn more about where Stewardship dollars go, or to make a pledge, click here.

Automatic Check Disbursement

An easy way to remain consistent in your SCAPC giving is to contact your bank to inquire about Automatic Check Disbursement. This is typically a free service by which your bank will cut and mail a check directly to SCAPC in the time frame that you specify (weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc.). Save a stamp and help ensure that your giving remains consistent!

Stock Donations

Now may be the time to consider making your Stewardship donation by transferring stock to the church. To affect such a donation, please contact Emily Fleshman, Accountant, by clicking here.

Visionary Fund

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.

To make a pledge, contribute to the Visionary Fund, or give a gift or memorial, please contact SCAPC Accountant Emily Fleshman by clicking here.
