A pledge is a written declaration of commitment to donate a specific amount of money over the year. If you’re new to church and getting acquainted, you are encouraged to give what you feel moved to give. Most importantly, we want you to come back and get to know us, and allow us to know you. We believe that giving back to God, what has come from God, is a faith practice.
A pledge is a financial commitment. Each year St. Bart’s will ask you to prayerfully consider making an annual pledge to the Stewardship Campaign. The amount of your pledge is something to which you will want to give prayerful consideration. You are encouraged to use “proportional giving” which means you or your household select a proportion of your income that you are comfortable contributing. As you consider giving, consider all that you have been given by God– your life, your friendships, your family, your talent, your financial resources – and from there give in proportion to the gifts you have received.
You can make a pledge in one of three easy ways:
1. In worship, on Commitment Sunday, the St. Bart’s community comes together to pledge.
2. Declare your pledge by clicking here and submit our online pledge card.
2. By contacting Jama Toung at or 212-378-0278.
When you or your household signs a pledge card for support, you are making a statement. A signed pledge card is a sign of your commitment to Christ and the Church. Your pledge also helps the Vestry, clergy, and staff as they craft the annual church budget.
Stewardship gifts cover half of the church’s operating budget and enable us to open our doors to all. Your gifts support the diverse ministries of St. Bart’s including live and virtual worship, education, fellowship, faith-formation, pastor care, youth and family programs, and outreach. All of St. Bart’s ministries are designed to renew our hearts and minds so that we may fully experience Christ’s love. Clergy, musicians, and staff combine their talents to create transcendent worship and to support ministry to our city, the nation, and the world.
