Abundant Love

__________________________________________________________________________________

 

In time of stress and anxiety we turn not inward for relief but outward to the Abundant Love of God and our faith home community at St. David’s.  With so many unknowns in our world it is comforting to come together each week in worship.  We can absorb the healing music of our choir.  We can listen to the stories of inspiration from our ministry and communicate God’s Abundant Love through community prayer.

 

St David’s is here for us in times of sorrow and fear, and in times of joy and celebration. Reach deep into your heart and give your support this year to keep St. David’s ministry – OUR ministry – active and alive. We are even more dependent on your pledge at this time for our parish financial health. Your gifts will help us continue our beautiful virtual weekly services with live music and choir, Christian education for all ages, outreach efforts, weekly inspirational newsletters, and an in-person Day School.  

 

Please prayerfully consider your pledge level this year, keeping in mind that there are some who are seriously suffering financially and give out of Abundant Love for St. David’s.  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 2020-2021

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
