Stewardship Giving and The Three Pennies Challenge
Stewardship is our way of contributing to our mission with time, talents, and financial resources to help our community thrive in God's name. The concept of stewardship is that all members contribute according to their abilities to fulfill the church's needs
Our church does not have a fixed membership fee. Instead we welcome members to make a stewardship pledge of an amount of their choosing that they are able to fulfill.
We are often asked what an amount that a family should pledge. Along with many parishes, we recommend that families consider the "Three Pennies Pledge". This pledge equates to offering at least 3 Pennies out of every 1 dollar of their monthly income to support our Church. Please consult the table below for more information.
You keep 97 cents!...and you give just 3 Pennies to support your Church! If you have any questions, please reach out to a member of the Parish Council or the Stewardship Committee.

How We Fund Our Mission? .... Stewardship!
It’s not a Membership Fee or Donation
We become “members” of our Church at Baptism
God blesses us with so much!
Our families, our work…everything!
Based on our Gratitude for God’s Blessings
We give back a portion of what God has given us
How Do We Give?
Giving our First Fruits to God…not giving left-overs from our disposable income!
Trying to give God 10% back as it says in the Bible
Begin by trying to give at least 3%
That’s just 3 Pennies out of every $1...and that’s the 3 Pennies Challenge!
How do I take the challenge?
Keep an open mind and think about your role as Christ’s steward.
Don’t decide on a random dollar amount and pay a “membership fee” or make an annual “donation” to the Church.
Take the 3 Pennies Challenge and offer at least 3% of your household income to support your Church.
If you have already made your pledge…Thank You! But it’s still not too late to take the 3 Pennies Challenge!
