What’s Consistent Giving giving all about?

At Good Samaritan, we believe that stewardship of time, talent, and treasure is an important component of a balanced spiritual life. Returning to God from that which God has given us is a tangible way to express our faith. When each of us gives as we are able, together we fund ministry within our congregation, in our community, and in the world.

What is a Consistent Gift?

A consistent gift or pledge is an estimate of giving; some call it a statement of intent. Your consistent gift amount may be changed, increased or decreased during the year, at any time as your financial circumstances change. Simply notify our treasurer, and we will adjust your estimated gift.

Why should I make a Consistent Gift?

Consistent giving allows you to make intentional decisions about your financial giving. When you plan ahead for your giving, you make conscious choices about spending your money in ways that reflect your faith and values. Receiving your consistent gift allows our Bishop’s Committee, the church’s governing board, to do for our congregation what you do for your household: plan wisely for the use our resources in support of the mission and ministry to which God has called us. The Bishop’s Committee sets a budget based on the total amount committed to the church. While cash-in-the-plate offerings are important, your consistent gift lets the Bishop’s Committee plan more accurately for the ministry we can accomplish. This is especially important as Good Sam’s works toward our key priorities for 2020.
