STEWARDSHIP AND TITHING

To request envelopes for weekly giving, please contact the parish office at 488-2595. You may also give electronically through Faith Direct on their secure website or by downloading a form and mailing it in.

Another good way to support the parish is through eScrip. The eScrip program allows you to input your Safeway Club Card number and link it to our parish. One percent of your purchases will be given back to the parish to support our religious education programs. There is no cost or extra charge for enrolling in this program.


HOW CAN I BE A GOOD STEWARD OF MY TREASURE?

  • I acknowledge that all of my material possessions are gifts from God.
  • I understand that my offering is my “thank you” to such a generous God.
  • I give in proportion to the gifts I have received.
  • I strive to follow the Biblical tithe of 10 percent.

WHY 10 PERCENT?

  • 5 percent to the weekly Sunday parish offertory
  • 1 percent to the annual Diocese of Fairbanks Bishop's Appeal
  • 4 percent to other charities of your choice (including local/national non-profits, offerings for the poor, etc.)

While 10 percent is recommended, the actual amount anybody gives is left up to them. The thought is that it is the job of those who go to the church to take care of the financial needs of that particular church. Therefore, parishioners should tithe what they can afford.
