2013 Stewardship


As of Thursday, January 24th, we have 110 pledges totaling $333,557 for the 2013 EMC campaign, which includes a few new members. But we still have a ways to go to surpass last year (115 pledges for $355,622) and achieve this year's goal of $370,000 in pledges. 


Extra pledge cards can be found in the narthex or click here to download or email the office to have one sent to you.


Don't forget that you can donate your Stocks to SJOTM. The tax advantages of giving stock, instead of cash, to church can make doing so very worthwhile.  To learn more, please contact Lisa Keenan in the office at 908-766-2282 ext 13 or by email at  We would be happy to accept stock donations for 2013 as form of  pledge payment.
