2021 Stewardship Campaign
“All Things in Love” 1 Cor 14-16
Financially, St Barnabas has been impacted by the pandemic with decreases in pledge and plate income, and a loss of some rental income. Pledge income has dropped from about $275k in prior years, to about $225-$245k in 2020. The Finance Committee has targeted pledge to increase by 6-12% to achieve the target budget of $260k in pledge commitments for 2021. This will allow us to stabilize the church financials for 2021 even though we will need to draw on our endowment fund and still have a deficit that will be funding from cash savings. We believe that things will return to ‘normal’ in 2022.
At this stage, all we need from you is a pledge, which will be kept confidential. Your pledge is an offering to God, an investment in St Barnabas as your spiritual home. On behalf of the vestry and finance committee, we ask that you prayerfully consider your pledge for the upcoming year.
There are 3 ways to submit your pledge:
