Giving at Annunciation
Stewardship is part of our spiritual formation and maturation. We are stewards of God’s creation, as well as stewards of what we have been given here at Annunciation. We give to God for the joy of serving God, and that commitment is between you and God alone. The goal for giving within the Episcopal Church is the biblical tithe of 10%. We encourage you to pray about giving as part of your spiritual discipline and are willing to discuss your commitment with you at any time. We offer a yearly opportunity to make a pledge to the following years’ operating expenses, however, it is always a good time to review, renew, or make your first-time pledge. We have pledge cards available in the Church Office.
Everything we have is a gift from God. We are called to be wise stewards of those gifts. One simple way to carry out our call is to support the church’s mission through sacrificial giving. Our new eGiving options make it easy. eGiving allows you to make a one-time contribution or set up automatic recurring contributions and view your complete online giving history all at your own convenience. We now accept credit cards, debit cards
If you are currently giving on a weekly basis, you no longer need to write out 52 checks a year. When travel, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, this will allow your weekly offerings to continue on an uninterrupted basis.
Click on the “Donate Now” giving button to donate now. Set up your profile, and then follow the onscreen instructions to create an online profile and to schedule your one-time or your recurring contributions.
You may continue to give via traditional methods of checks or cash, during worship services on Sundays by simply dropping your offering in the offering plate. Utilize the memo line to request any special designation or offering. All checks without designations are applied to the general operating budget. Or, you can mail your offering to:
The Episcopal Church of the Annunciation
P.O. Box 292365
Lewisville, TX 75029-2365
If you need more information, you can send an e-mail to our Director of Business Affairs, Jeni Payton.
Annunciation has established a fund to help ensure the financial future of our church. These funds are invested, and the proceeds from the investments will be used each year to subsidize youth mission trips, provide seed money for new ministries, and to assist with larger facilities projects. They will not be used to subsidize our operating budget and will be managed by the Endowment Committee to ensure the sustainability of the Legacy Fund over the long-term. To learn more about including the Legacy Fund in your estate planning, please contact the Church Office.
You may also give to our Memorial Fund in memory or in honor of a loved one, or you can give to our Altar Flower fund in order to dedicate the flowers on the Altar. If you are interested in giving in this way, please click here to make your wishes known.
