Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 
and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.  And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.

Matthew 28:19-20

Stewardship

Why is it good to pledge?

The church requires funds to exist to continue our education programs, and to do important mission work in our community and beyond. The church functions more efficiently when our financial officers know how much money they can expect to receive so they can budget more accurately. Think of it this way: to make a family budget, you need to know what your income will be. Your church is no different. To plan effectively, our leaders need to know what our income will be.

Can we count on you to make a pledge?

Three ways to pledge

Our pledge goal is 100% participation by church members. Remember, it is not how much you pledge but that you show your commitment to this church by pledging. Each member of Shallowford is mailed a pledge card with a return envelope for your prayerful consideration. No pledge is too small to be thankfully received. Pledges are confidential, known only to our financial leaders, and can be adjusted simply by calling the church office. No questions will be asked.

Online pledges and contributions are processed through Realm.
