Why We Give

In every way I’ve shown you that by laboring like this, it is necessary to help the weak and to keep in mind the words of the Lord Jesus, for He said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ” Acts 20:35

2024 Estimated Giving

The discipline of making a giving estimate is often used as a part of a spiritual development. The emphasis is on the gift, not the amount. Please take time to prayerfully consider what is best for you/your household and how you might be able to support our ministries. Every gift is important. As always, giving estimates can be lowered or raised at any time by contacting Jessica Evans in the church office.

What Is an Annual Stewardship Pledge?

Your Annual Stewardship Pledge is a commitment to make a financial gift over the course of a year that supports the mission of Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church. Pledging is a response to God’s call to each of us, and a response to the abundance of God’s blessing in our own lives: it is a statement of thanksgiving.

Why Does Palmer Need Annual Pledges?

Everything we do at Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church relies principally on Stewardship pledges — paying clergy, supporting our outreach ministries, Christian Formation programs, music, paying the electric bill, and maintaining our beautiful campus. We need Stewardship commitments to plan our annual expenditures. In addition, part of every pledge supports the Episcopal Diocese of Texas and national church (ECUSA) and its ministry around the world.

Who Should Make a Pledge?

Anyone and everyone! If Palmer is your church home, we need your pledge. We hope you’ll feel you need it too as part of being a Christian.

How Much Should I Pledge?

We ask each parishioner to consider making a pledge that is both responsible and significant based on his or her financial situation. A tithe (10% of your income) has long been held as the standard of Christian giving. For most it is a goal to be reached through incremental increases each year. Every pledged dollar adds to our mission and ministry.
