Autumn, 2017

Dear Fellow Parishioners,

Thank you for your past support of St. George’s Church. The pledges that you have contributed have been put to good use, and we continue to strive to make our church better every year. For example, the parish website recently underwent a complete overhaul. Many of the favorite items are still there, such as the weekly bulletin and monthly calendar, but there are also many new features. The new site now includes a Google calendar, Facebook and Twitter pages, and an easier to navigate interface. Live video streaming of the Liturgy is now available, and you may now pay for pledges using credit cards. If you haven’t visited our website recently, do so soon. Be sure that you share our site with any interested friends. And if you haven’t been to church lately, I encourage you to pay a visit and see all that we have to offer. We need your help in spiritually and financially supporting our ministries.

October 1st 2017 began our parish fiscal year. Once again, we are seeking your support to provide for the financial needs of our parish. Our parish relies 100% on the generosity of its membership to meet the financial obligations.

We continue to utilize our “fair share stewardship program.” The stewardship program provides each person the opportunity to pledge in total confidence based upon our ability to support the financial needs of the church community. We can choose the amount we give and in what manner to make payment, that is: weekly, monthly, annually – whatever is best for our personal situation. We encourage you to “make a pledge” by completing the enclosed pledge form for the 2018 fiscal year (Oct. 1, 2017 through September 30, 2018) and returning it ASAP. Thank you to those who have donated with or without a formal pledge. This year, we ask that everyone please complete a pledge form in order for us to plan our budget based upon a known projected income.

To keep our church vibrant and viable, it is necessary to receive an average of at least $1200 per pledging unit annually. A pledging unit is normally a single adult, a married couple or a married couple with minor children. However, each individual pledge should be based upon our own ability to give. We also welcome support from those who are not official members of the parish, but support church functions or otherwise utilize church services.

In addition to your financial support, we also encourage you to take advantage of the many blessings that our church has to offer, and to use your talents to support our important ministries such as Choir, Sunday School, SOYO and Fellowship of St. John and others.
I would be happy to address any questions you may have regarding the stewardship program. Please feel free to contact me at (978) 688-0582 or via email at mkraunelis(at)gmail(dot)com. If you prefer, you can to email your pledge information directly to me. Thank you for your fellowship and support.

Sincerely,
Matthew A. Kraunelis
Director of Stewardship & Outreach
