Holiday Giving

For 2020, St. Paul's will make the holidays brighter for families in our area with fewer resources, including those in our Hunger Ministry and those referred to us by partners at Montgomery County through the Department of Health & Human Services. For 2020, we will be sending department-store gift cards (such as Target) and grocery gift cards by mail. Although we will deeply miss the annual Cookies & Carols party and stacks of donated gifts under the tree, this plan gives the families maximum flexibility to select meaningful presents and prevents any possible spread of covid-19 among our families and volunteers.

Pledging Support for 2021

Committing to regular giving to the church amidst all of the challenges of the current moment might seem impossible. At St. Paul’s, we are people who believe in beautiful impossibilities. Despite the challenges we face, with God's help, we will make this come out all right.

If circumstances enable you to offer a pledge this year, it can help ensure we can keep our commitments. If you keep your pledge the same as last year, it will be all right. If you are able to increase your pledge, it will be all right. If circumstance dictates that you must decrease your pledge, then that will be all right. If you have never pledged before, that's all right, too! And if you are unable to pledge, we hope you will contribute as you are able throughout the year.

Your faithful giving makes it possible for St. Paul's to maintain a vital, vibrant ministry that reaches our members and friends, our local community, and our world, and enables us to keep our commitments to the people and projects within our walls and the outreach and mission work that reaches far beyond our walls.  

  Please click HERE for the secure Pledge form and indicate your commitment for supporting St. Paul's in the year 2021. 

Stewardship Sunday will be celebrated on October 25 when we worship together in the park. Click here to read more

Paper forms and a letter from our Stewardship chair haven been mailed to church members and friends. You do not need to pledge more than once, so if you choose to use the online form there is no need to also submit a paper form. 

We are so grateful for your pledge of support and your commitment to this faith community as we journey together! If you have questions, please contact Michelle Gregonis, Treasurer, at mgregonis At

"Special Sundays" Offerings

"Special Sundays" are designated by the global United Methodist Church and enable congregations throughout our whole denomination to celebrate, commemorate, and contribute connectionally to support important causes. According to the UMC's General Council on Finance & Administration,  individual congregations may choose to celebrate Special Sundays and welcome offerings on any Sunday throughout the year that is convenient and appropriate.  While COVID-19 prevents us from providing the paper envelopes we would normally see as bulletin inserts, we will be posting online giving options for each Special Sunday as it is observed at St. Paul's.

More About... 

The Capital Campaign

The Capital Campaign, launched in 2016, has one goal: to raise the funds for a building renovation that will improve our church's accessibility and worship/fellowship spaces.

The feel and functionality of our church is essential to our mission and service goals. It is an extension and reflection of who we are and it is the vessel through which we fulfill our commitment and connection to Christ.

By altering and modernizing our inner walls, we can provide a more welcoming environment for visitors and our current members, shape a more accessible space for our community to gather, ensure our church is ADA compliant, and - maybe most important - provide more space for our ever-growing ministries.

Our Building Committee and Capital Campaign Committees, working together, have helped us move toward this renovation. Design professionals have drawn up architectural plans, surveys have been completed, permits have been issued, and other necessary paperwork has been submitted for approval. 

Please click here to visit the Renovation page to learn about the project's current status and view the slideshow presented at our Special Church Conference in September 2020 when final plans were overwhelmingly approved by voting members.

Capital giving differs from annual giving in several ways:

• It invests in permanent properties

• It spreads out payments during a much longer period.

• It seeks larger amounts than annual budgets can deliver

• It requires a planned, sacrificial and inspirational effort, and occasionally involves gifting of real estate, securities, life insurance or other tangible assets. 

• It is over and above one’s regular or annual giving.

Click here to read the Capital Campaign brochure, and then prayerfully consider making a special pledge to support this project. Capital Campaign Pledge cards are available in the church office. Please contact Tim Simpson, chair of the capital campaign committee, or the church office.

Offering Envelopes Available

Members and friends of St. Paul's who give their general offering to St. Paul's using check or cash may choose to receive customized paper offering envelopes. These come from a printing service and arrive at donors' homes, ready to use and pre-printed with the donors' name, address, envelope number, and Sunday dates (although you can use them any time).

If you would normally place checks or cash in the offering plate and now wish to mail it to St. Paul's, these customized paper envelopes might be useful to you. Email Erin Steele (stpaulsunited [at] and she will add you to the list.

Alternatively, if you receive envelopes but shifted to online giving and no longer need printed envelopes, please let us know. This can help keep clutter out of your mailbox and save the church a little money on printing and postage costs. Please email Erin (stpaulsunited [at] with your request.

One last note:  Thank you for your patience! Due to the printers' timetable and the challenges of working remotely during the COVID-19 period, there may be a two-month (or more) delay between your request and a change in your paper envelope status.
