Christian stewardship is a way of living in which we recognize that everything belongs to God. Therefore, true stewardship encompasses every aspect of the Christian Life. Join us at St Thomas as we Encounter Christ and strive to give Him dominion over every aspect of our life, including our finances
The Importance of stewardship is not in giving to needs but rather your need to give.
If you are already giving online – it may be time to reconsider your giving level. If you are not giving on-line we encourage you to give it a try!
It keeps the first things first. Giving to God is to be “first” and not a last or leftover matter.
It’s consistent. Have you ever forgotten your gift, left it at home or pledged to double it in the future? Have you fallen behind because of travel or other schedule interruptions? Online giving provides a way to stay up to date.
It’s convenient. You expedite your gift, simplify your checkbook, and strengthen our base of regular support.
It’s secure. An online gift cannot be lost or stolen.

Planned Giving Gifts are often those that take effect after our journey on earth has ended. They can be the most significant gifts we may ever make, and their importance to the mission of St. Thomas the Apostle Church cannot be overestimated. There are several Pathways to Planned Giving that we hope you will consider:
† Through Outright Gifts of cash or appreciated property.
† Through Bequests in your Will or Trust of a specific amount, a percentage of your estate or of the remainder after all your other bequests are satisfied.
† Through Beneficiary Designation in your life insurance, annuity or retirement accounts.
† Through an Income Annuity you can provide yourself with lifetime income while leaving the remainder upon your death.
† Through Split-Interest Trusts you can accomplish your advanced estate and tax planning goals while leaving a legacy at St. Thomas the Apostle Church. When designating St. Thomas the Apostle Church, please use our official title and address as it appears below:
