sharing the gifts we have been given

The Stewardship Committee recognizes that all that we have and all that we are comes from God. As God’s stewards, it is our responsibility to help the congregation to give of their time, talents, and treasure, not out of obligation or guilt, but according to what they want to become in their relationship with God and with others. Our stewardship is not something we do; it is who we are. The committee is responsible for determining the needs of the church in terms of how people can become involved and in terms of the financial needs to support our many missions and ministries at Pluckemin Presbyterian. They then strive to help the congregation to fulfill those needs.

Stewardship 2019

God is calling us, saying,

“… loose the bonds of injustice, let the oppressed go free, share your bread with the

hungry, bring the homeless poor into your house; when you see the naked, cover them, do not hide yourself from your own kin. Then your light shall break forth like the dawn…”adapted from Isaiah 58:6-8

Stewardship Season is the time each year when we are challenged to

look afresh at our total commitment to Christ. During this time we are asked to rediscover, or discover for the first time our gifts and talents, and to recommit to using them to fulfill our mission to share the reconciling love of Christ with those around us through our worship and service.

We are also asked to take a fresh look at our financial commitment. This has been an exciting year, and we have seen God doing marvelous things in the life of this church. We do step forward in Faith, but at the same time, God has blessed each of us financially to one extent or another, and as much as we are challenged to commit our gifts and talents, so we are also challenged to give of the financial blessings that God has given to us.

This year Stewardship Season begins on October 13, as we look for a few weeks at what it means to be good stewards of all that God has given to us.

We have a few special events taking place this year to help bring more clarity and focus to our commitment:

October 22 – Stewardship Dinner, with Special Guest Speaker  Jessica Johnson from   Thrivent

November 3 – Commitment Sunday

Online donation

Your stewardship donations can now be taken care of online. There are two ways to give online.

  • Fill out the form below to give a one time or reoccurring donation 
  • Text GIVE and an amount to 908-300-5269

    If it's the first time you are donating by text, you will be given a link and asked to supply your payment method (credit card, debit card, or bank account). This payment source will then be linked with your phone number so that, in the future, all you will need to do is text in the amount and you will not need to re-enter their payment information.

Tips to help your donation go further….

Unfortunately, online donations come with a processing cost that the church must pay.
Two ways you can help the church save processing fees:

  • Give from your bank account rather than a credit card.  The processing fees the church pays will be less.
  • Consider helping us cover the costs by adding 2.9% for Credit/Debit Card payments or 1% for ACH Bank Transfer Payments  

We are considerably grateful for your commitment and generosity
