Your Giving Estimate As A Percent Of Income

Why look at your pledge as a percent of your income? As Christian stewards of God's gifts to our lives, we believe that what we have belongs to God and must be used to accomplish God's purpose. Several General Conventions of the Episcopal Church, as well as the Convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, have affirmed 10% of income as the biblical standard giving. While we do not want to be legalistic about such percentages, it can be a helpful discipline to budget our expenditures so that we can intentionally reserve a percentage for God's work. It may also be helpful in re-estimating your giving if your circumstances change. If you have questions about percentage giving, feel free to speak to the rector or a member of the vestry with whom you feel comfortable.
