Dear Friends,

The people of St. Peter's have done a magnificent job recovering from last year's financial distress.  We've closed that gap...MOST OF THE WAY.  We project about a $17,000 shortfall to fully fund our mission for 2017.

We need your help to push us over the line. The Vestry asks everyone to make sure that you are meeting your pledge for 2017, and to consider making a one-time holiday gift to fully fund our ministry, staff, and mission. We are "Turning Strangers into Friends into Followers of Jesus."

Please consider automating your giving using REALM.  To learn how, see the instructional video on our website and McCray Hall.  Online giving insures stable income for the church.  Currently 25% of our giving is automated and it has helped a lot.  We'd like to increase that to 50% of our giving by the end of the year.

The Vestry and I really appreciate your help in addressing this together so St. Peter’s can deliver consistent service to God and the community that we serve.

Thank You.

Joe Matthews, Sr. Warden
