Church Support and Stewardship
Church, like any organization, is a give-and-take operation. The church serves its parishoners through
worship services, fellowship, counseling, and support. The church serves the community through its many
outreach ministries. And that is a good thing; the church is supposed to be God's hands and voice in
the world! But the church's work cannot happen without financial support.
While most of the church's work is done by church members volunteering their time and talents (and that is very important), volunteering alone will not support the ministry of Prince of Peace. The building and the land have to be purchased and maintained. The staff needs to be paid; the light bill has to be paid. The campus must be maintained. There is work to do and things to buy if the church is to serve either the parishoners or the community. Our financial support makes these things happen.
As stewards (managers on God's behalf) of Prince of Peace, we are called on to look at all that God has blessed
us with and give something in thanksgiving in return. After prayerful consideration about financial giving to
God's work through Prince of Peace, we ask our parishoners to commit (pledge) to give of our time, talent, and
treasure. The Hebrew Scriptures commanded to set aside ten percent of one's income as a gift to God. We have moved
from the law of tithe to the grace of generosity with Jesus.
Traditionally, Prince of Peace requests the parishoners submit a pledge of financial support in November (to allow for planning of the next year's budget). But one can pledge support at any time by requesting a pledge card from the office or by using our online pledge card (below).
If you wish to make your pledge electronically, please also download and complete the Electronic Giving Authorization Form below and return it to the church office.
In this digital age, some parishoners wish to contribute their pledges via online banking. This can be accomplished through the parishoner's bank or by using the service Prince of Peace has enrolled with (below).
