For God so loved the world....

Rev. John Baumann talks about love and the church. God's love still moves us to give as Christians. His divine love is our guideline for how we support our ministries and missions at St. Peter's UCC. Rev. John Baumann served as the St. Peter's UCC pastor from 1969-1989.

FACING OUR GIANTS

Please do your part to help St. Peter's United Church of Christ support its ministries. Everyone has a role to play, and is encouraged to give to the best of their ability. Your contributions to the work of St. Peter's UCC are a way of saying thanks to God for all the blessings you have received.

This year, we are working toward building our general fund contributing levels as we prepare to call a new settled pastor. Your help is appreciated.

We are asking all members to increase their weekly giving by $5 per week. So, wherever you are in the giving spectrum, please consider adding $5 per week to your general fund contributions.

We already have 30 giving units who have stepped forward to make a difference. Our goal is to get a commitment from more than 100 giving units to match that commitment.

David defeated his giant with the help of the Lord. He put five small stones in the sling and silenced the tormentor. We can conquer our giant if you are willing to put five small dollars more per week into your contributing patterns.

Thank you for helping meet the needs of God's church!

ELECTRONIC GIVING HELPS EVERYONE

An electronic funds giving service is available through St. Peter's UCC. The Electronic Funds (EFT) program works in the same manner as available to pay your heat, electric, insurance, etc. The Financial Secretary will take your completed authorization form (available in the Fellowship Hall, from the Church office, or download the authorization form here). You can enroll at any time and you can cancel at any time. Enrolling provides you with the satisfaction of giving to God first and provides our church with a more predictable income flow.
What Does It Cost? It costs you nothing and saves you time. The church pays twenty-five cents per transaction. The program is set up identical to your current envelope sections.
Frequently Asked Questions:
How is it automated?
Once you authorize the transfer, your specified contribution is electronically transferred directly from your checking or savings account to the church's account.
Is this the same as my annual pledge for financial support through our Stewardship program?
You'll still make a pledge. Electronic giving just helps you fulfill it! What are the advantages? It saves you time and work and St. Peter's benefits from more stable contribution levels.
When will my offering be deducted from my account?
On the date(s) you specify on your authorization form.
What if I try it and don't like it, or need to change it for any reason?
You can cancel or change your authorization by completing a new authorization form (if changing) or calling the church Financial Secretary in writing.
What if I change banks or accounts?
Just complete a new authorization form.
Is an electronic fund transfer risky?
Electronic contribution is less risky than a check contribution. It cannot be lost, stolen, or destroyed. It has an extremely high rate of accuracy.
