While the following paragraphs refer mainly to the financial aspect of stewardship, at All Souls Parish we believe in the stewardship of all life -- our time, our talents, and our treasure.
Over 63% of our membership is active in some form of ministry of this parish beyond regular worship attendance. We freely offer our time and talent to the ongoing support of the church, through leading study groups, serving on boards, or participating in one of our small groups. Stewardship of God's gifts to us needs to be a way of life, not merely a seasonal exercise of pledging financial support.
Our yearly pledge assists the Session (the governing body of the congregation) in preparing an annual budget for the church, this includes mission outreach beyond All Souls. The budget is heavily dependent on our giving in thankful response to God. Please speak with our Financial Secretary, Andrea Winchester for more information.
All Souls has established a fund to honor or memorialize relatives or friends or to give thanks to God for special occasions. Your tributes are used to help fund special building projects and programs in the church. You may send a contribution in any amount (separate contributions for separate tributes, please). Please use the envelopes available in the pews, the narthex (foyer) or the Church Office for your offering.
You may contribute toward the cost of weekly sanctuary flowers for special occasions or in honor or memory of loved ones. The cost of flowers is $25 per arrangement. Your gift is acknowledged in the worship bulletin. Please sign up on the bulletin board in the hallway by the narthex or call the church office at 914-939-4300 to arrange for you flower donation. Seasonal plants are available at Christmas and Easter.
