A Few Thoughts About Giving Estimates
Intended as Discernment. Your Giving Estimates are intended to be your prayerful discernment of what God is calling you to give of your time, talent, and treasurer to further God’s ministry at and through St. Nicholas Church, and what your circumstances permit.
Covers a Calendar Year. Your Giving Estimates are intended to cover an entire calendar year, so that church leadership can exercise good stewardship of the resources of time, talent, and treasure entrusted to them by the people of the parish.
Changeable as Needed. Your Giving Estimates can be changed and resubmitted any time your circumstances require a decrease or permit a desired increase.
