What does it mean to make a pledge?

The Church asks each year for "estimates of giving" to plan for annual budgeting of expenditures.
How do I pay my pledge? You can request weekly offering envelopes or ask the church to set up automatic giving to fit your budgeting schedule, (MasterCard, Visa, or debit). To manage a recurring donation online, you will be prompted to choose an option when you make your pledge. Gifts of appreciated stock are also accepted.

If you have not yet filled out a pledge card, please do so. Every pledge makes a difference and supports our church with a vital mission and ministry seven days a week. Pledge cards are available online either at  www.csmsg.org or click here. You may also pick one up at Church or contact Laurie at Laurie@csmsg.org

Thank you for your pledge.

Celebrating Our History, Insuring Our Future
Planned Giving at The Church of St. Michael & St. George: Planned Giving is a term for the number of ways in which parishioners can ensure that their stewardship efforts continue after their death by making a gift to the Endowment Fund. If you care enough about your church to make a faithful annual pledge, contributing to our Endowment Fund should be a natural next step. If you are interested in more information about making a planned gift to CSMSG, please visit our website for more information, or contact the Rector's Office at 314.721.1502.
