“It is in giving that we receive…”
Many thanks to everyone who has turned in a completed 2018 Pledge Form, or pledged online at stpaulswallingford.org. If you’ve not already done so, please place your Form in today’s offertory or drop it off in the parish office during the week. Pledge Forms are available at each church entrance. YOUR pledge makes everything we do together possible. For instance, a pledge of $900 provides altar supplies for the year, $2,500 covers church school and youth programming, $6,300 pays six month of utilities for our big, beautiful space, and $14,000 supports half of the music director’s time. We also encourage you to see if your employer offers Matching Gifts. Please contact the parish office for more information about how we can arrange for St. Paul’s to be the beneficiary of this. Thank you!
