stewardship


"Jesus said therefore, ‘What is the kingdom of God like?

And to what shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed

which a man took and sowed in his garden;

and it grew and became a tree,

and the birds of the air made nests in its branches.’”

                                                                                            —Luke 13:18-19


St. Peter’s continues to be a dynamic and growing community of faith providing a sanctuary in the heart of Lewes, open and welcoming to all. So far in 2016 we already have 24 new households worshiping with us. Our church can be likened to the trees in the parable of the mustard seed, providing a place for birds, our ministries, to grow. Birds supported in our trees include, among others, pastoral services, outreach, worship, music, Christian formation and parish life. Our ministries provide wonderful and needed services to parishioners, those seeking to learn about the Lord, and those in need throughout the Cape region. All of the property, administration and ministries done by St. Peter’s of course require financial and volunteer support. Please take some time to consider what St. Peter’s means to you personally and the greater community. Then determine what you can do to support the church.


Pledging.  Pledging is the primary way to financially support St. Peter’s. A Pledge is your estimate of what you expect to give to the church during the next year. It isn’t a binding commitment and can be modified at any time. It can be given weekly, monthly, or annually. Your pledge goes to support all aspects of the church. By pledging, you’re providing the Vestry with the information it needs to generate a realistic budget and to plan for next year’s activities.


Join us on November 6, as we give offer gifts to God and join in "Growing St. Peter's in 2017." 


Pot Luck Luncheon and Annual Meeting.  As in previous years, we will have a Pot Luck lunch after the 10 a.m. worship service on November 6.  Please bring a covered dish to share.  The Annual Meeting will follow at noon.  Both will take place in the Parish Hall.
