As we believe that generous giving is one of the Marks of Discipleship and is definitely a spiritual matter, we encourage everyone to give freely, joyfully, regularly and sacrificially. Our financial gifts make possible all we do together as a family of faith – providing for all our ministries and the staff, resources and facilities necessary to make them possible. When we give, we are blessed as we know that we are being responsive to God’s call to be about His Kingdom work in the here and now.
Members and regular guests of St. Andrew’s receive offering envelopes at the end of each year for the upcoming year. There is one envelope for each Sunday in addition to special worship services like Christmas and mid-week Lent worship services.
Another method of regular giving is by using Simply Giving – an electronic transfer of funds (ETF).
Each giver decides the amount and frequency of the electronic transfer of funds. The benefit of this method is you never forget to do the giving you intend to do. It happens automatically. It is a method of “first fruits” giving. Instead of giving what is “left over,” you decide up front what to give to God’s Kingdom work. It also provides for a more consistent cash flow for your congregation. Many people use electronic transfer of funds to take care of their most important financial commitments – mortgage, utilities, insurances, etc. If you find ETF convenient and acceptable, perhaps you’d be interested in Simply Giving.
