Dear Friends and Parishioners of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church,

Recently, I sent out a very important letter to the parish. If you did not receive it, I’ve attached the letter to this email and would kindly ask you to read it.

In this very challenging times, I would like to invite you to THINK, PRAY and PLAN. These are indeed challenging times for all of us! Imagine what it has been like to run a church through a pandemic! It has been quite stressful for all involved and there have been many sleepless nights. But, there is also great HOPE because our parishioners continue to give because our mission is very important to them. This has been a sign of great HOPE!

The biggest impact that COVID-19 has had on our parish is the inability to take our weekly collection during our Sunday liturgy. This has had a significant impact on us. We hope to overcome this challenge in new and creative ways by embrace a new model of giving and I am asking you to help.

As we face 2021, we ask our parishioners to consider planned giving and to make your 2021 pledge by using Online Electronic Giving either on a monthly basis or on a weekly basis. This safe and secure way to give will allow us to “set our sails” and help us get through this pandemic for 2021.
We need to plan for 2021 now.

WE ASK YOU TO COMPLETE THE FORM and mail it to us by December 15, 2020. Once we receive your form, someone from our team will be in touch with you soon to help with the next steps and to help answer any questions you might have.

You can find both the 2021 Stewardship Letter and the 201

2021 Stewardship Letter

2021 Pledge Form

VERY IMPORTANT: Even if you are currently giving to St. Peter’s Episcopal Church on a regular basis, we ask you to fill out a new form every year.

Your 2021 contribution to St. Peter’s will help us improve the quality of our ministry and will help us to BE better and DO better. The investment of your money in our programs and services will help us embrace innovation and growth.

Our work of LOVING GOD, LOVING OTHERS & MAKING NEW DISCIPLES has been carried out every day since this pandemic began earlier this year. How we engage in ministry looks very different these days. However, with resiliency, love and action, we are being innovative and creative.

YOUR GIVING MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE. We invite you to continue to support our vital ministries here at St. Peter’s. As a church, let us continue to embrace innovation and be forward-thinking.

If you have already mailed your form to us, thank you SO much!

Together, let us embrace 2021 and the life and ministry of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church with great hope!

In Christ,
