As we approach 2019, we are inviting you to commit to helping your St. James Parish achieve all the exciting things that are going on here – so that they continue. Our 2019 Pledge Card gives you the opportunity to donate to two campaigns – the Stewardship of Treasure (your 2019 tithe) and the New Church Fund.
Stewardship of Treasure
We invite each of you to fill out the left side of the pledge card for the Stewardship of Treasure” (your 2019 tithe). This goes to pay our ordinary expenses of the day-to-day operations of a large parish plant, with many ministries and needs.
New Church Fund 2019
The right side of the pledge card invites those who have made a pledge to the new church fund through 2018 to make the pledge to continue giving through 2019. It also provides an opportunity for those who have not made a pledge to ‘come on board’. This would help us to not be burdened with a large debt when the construction of our new church is finished.

Remember, “Not Equal Gifts, But Equal Sacrifice!” Some have been given little, so they can share little; some have been given much, so they can share much. But all of us can give like kings, if we give sacrificially. Everything belongs to the Lord, and we are simply caretakers and stewards for a period of time.
We invite you to become an integral part of making this exciting vision a reality. Please, in prayer, consider a generous sacrificial gift to St. James through a pledge to this campaign.
Please pick up a pledge card in the Narthex and return it in the collection basket or to the church office.
