Each of you should give what you
have decided in your heart to give,
not reluctantly or under compulsion,
for God loves a cheerful giver.

Stewardship at St. Andrew’s
We believe that all that we have belongs to God. As Christians we are called to give “the first fruits” of our labors back to God. We give not because God needs our money, but because we need to remind ourselves of our dependence upon him, and express our thankfulness for the blessings he has given us.
St. Andrew’s depends upon the voluntary financial contributions of our members to pay our clergy and staff, maintain our facilities, finance our ministries, fund our children’s and youth programs and other ministries, and cover our administrative costs. Without your sacrificial giving, none of the work we do for God here at St. Andrew’s is possible. You generosity is greatly appreciated.
How can I give?
Cash or Check – The easiest way to give with cash or a check is during the collection of the offering during our worship services. Contributions may also be mailed or delivered during the week to the church office.
“Bill Pay” Online Banking – Most banks now provide online banking (sometimes called “Bill Pay”) for those who prefer not to write checks. Follow directions from your bank to create St. Andrew’s Anglican Church as a new payee and choose the frequency of your gifts.
Give Online – St. Andrew’s Anglican Church has partnered with OneChurch Software to offer secure, online giving. Click here to make a one time gift, or set up an account for recurring gifts.
Who should give?
St. Andrew’s encourages every person (or family) who considers our congregation to be their church home to give regularly for the sake of their own spiritual life and the life of God’s Church.
How much should I give?
The biblical starting place for giving is a tithe (10%) of one’s annual income, and we want to commend this practice to you. If you have not tithed in the past, see if you can take a baby step towards tithing by increasing your giving each year until you reach at least 10%.
Is my gift tax-deductible?
Yes, St. Andrew’s Anglican Church is registered as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which means all gifts to our church are tax-deductible. All gifts made by check or online will automatically be added to your annual giving statement. If you would like any cash donations to be added to your giving statement, please enclose cash offerings in a giving envelope with your name on it. The IRS requires receipts or statements to verify contributions of any amount for tax deduction.
