  • Stewardship Formation

    Established by the Vestry in 2009, is a year-round communication effort to link tithing and proportional or percentage giving by personal testimonies, written prayers used in the Prayers of the People on Sundays, and other stewardship messages that go to all pledging households.

  • Annual Giving

    This is the annual fall campaign process to fund our operating budget. At St. Paul’s, the average household pledge exceeds that of the average pledge of the other congregations in the Diocese of Georgia and throughout the Episcopal Church. While our giving is generous, our expenses are considerable, so we must all keep our pledges up to date and be aware of other needs.  Please contact Ed Dozier (229) 894-5898.

     

  • Endowment Foundation

    This was formed in 1972 with a single generous gift. Today, the Foundation has had many donors, and the value is approaching $1 million. Gifts may be designated or undesignated—but only earnings from the principal will be spent and spent only on buildings maintenance or a ministry which the donor designates.  Please contact Jay Reynolds (229) 344-5000 and Dunn Stapleton (229) 436-1354.

  • Memorial Gifts

    Are given to the Glory of God, and in memory of someone who has died or in thanksgiving for someone, the donor wishes to recognize. Memorial gifts are given and recorded throughout the year.  Debbie Godwin (229) 436-0196.

  • Planned Giving

    This is a program (also called Legacy Ministry) where individuals have informed us that St. Paul’s is to be provided a gift at the end of their life.  Please contact the church office (229) 436-0196.

  • Living in Gods Creation

    This is the newest component of stewardship at St. Paul’s, formed in early 2012.  This ministry focuses on recycling throughout the church and Parish House.  Please contact Linda Lowery (229) 436-0196.
