Faith Filled Generosity

__________________________________________________________________________________

 

The hallways may be dark, the big red doors closed,

but the spirit of St. David’s remains vibrant and strong

through your faith and your generosity.

 

The heart of our church is beating with virtual choir rehearsals, committee meetings and words of inspiration from our clergy and leaders. We may not be meeting in person but we can gather each Sunday together on Zoom, Facebook or YouTube to hear the Word of God.

 

This is a time of great anxiety for many in our community but we hope you are able to keep your pledge payments coming. You currently have the option of

  • mailing your check to the church office
  • including us on automated Bill Pay through your bank
  • using the One-Time Gift button (in the sidebar to the right)
  • and coming soon: an online giving program through our website

 Keep in mind that stewardship is not only about money. Stewardship is about caring for our church family and our community. If you are in need of any kind of support, or if you know of anyone who is in need of support, please call the church office.

 

Our buildings may be closed, but our hearts are open and our faith remains strong.

 

New information for Charitable giving in 2020

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES) includes a number of provisions that may affect your charitable giving this year. Beginning in 2020:

  • Individuals who do not itemize can now deduct up to $300 from their gross income for making a gift to any non-profit including St. David’s.
  • For those of you who do itemize you can continue to contribute with no cap.
  • There is no required minimum distribution from IRA retirement plans, but you can still distribute and if to a charity they remain tax free, and further it still possible for donors who are 70½ or over to contribute up to $100,000 directly to a charity from their IRAs without paying tax on the distribution.

The one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.  Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.  And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work.

 2 Corinthians 9:6-8
