Let’s make a difference in the world together!
Loved by God through Christ, we are called to love into our world as Christ loves us. As faithful people, we tend to the needs of others and our church’s ministry when we share our gifts, talents and resources. The world experiences God’s love through us!
As a community of faith, St. Andrew members and our congregation as a whole make contributions for the betterment of God’s world. Together, we support a vibrant ministry in Eden Prairie that involves dynamic weekly worship, an enriching early learning program, a camping ministry in northern Minnesota and a multitude of service and learning programs designed to equip people of all ages. St. Andrew also follows the biblical concept of a tithe by giving 10% of our envelope giving to our Benevolence Fund, supporting ministries outside our congregation. The Endowment Fund is another example of how we joyfully leave a legacy so that proceeds of the fund might work for the betterment of God’s world
Giving is not only about how the congregation gives, but it is also about you. Every member has many opportunities to live faithfully in daily life by sharing your time and talents within the ministry at St. Andrew (small group leaders, ushers, etc.) as well as within the broader community for the sake of Christ.
Giving also involves sharing financial resources with the church, acknowledging that St. Andrew is a strong and faithful expression of God’s work in our community and world. Members of the community are encouraged to make a financial pledge to support the church. A variety of giving options exist from the popular electronic giving, weekly offerings, stock gifts, or the annual Give to the Max program.
Thank you for the many contributions you make to the work of God’s church in the world. Please let us know how we might assist you as you explore your many gifts that you have to share. Together we make a difference in the world for the sake of Christ!
To setup your giving pledge, please indicate the frequency and amount of your pledge in an email to Gail Silewski at email@example.com.
