“Lord, please give us generous and giving hearts.”
What we do at St. Paul Matters!
Stewardship is much more than a few church-related activities. It’s making a choice, one small step at a time, to acknowledge our dependence on God for all we have and all we are. As a steward at St. Paul’s, we recognize that everything we have and everything we love is only on loan from God. We use our time, talent and treasure gifts from God to serve others for His Glory. It is in giving, after all, that we receive.
Note on Annual Appeal:
Please see the inside back of the Bulletin to see where we are with the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal. If you have not yet made a pledge but, would like to do so, we could really use your commitment. In doing so, you will provide for ministries and services throughout the Archdiocese and also for services that are of great help to other ministries in our parish. And, remember, if we go over our goal, all the extra comes back to our Parish tax free! It’s never too late to make your pledge. Just stop by the office or see an usher after mass to get a pledge envelope. Or, contact Darrel Chaney at 770-715-1599 or email@example.com. What we do at St. Paul’s, Matters!
And from the Archdiocese…
“How shall I make a return to the Lord for all the good He has done for me?” – Psalm 116:12
We are called to be good stewards of the gifts God has given us. Good stewards often have assets they can share with our parish endowment fund. A simple way is naming the parish endowment fund as a beneficiary of your IRA or 401K account. Simply contact the retirement account provider for a change of beneficiary form. This is easy and costs you nothing during your lifetime. For more information contact Juliet Greco at the Catholic Foundation of North Georgia at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404-497-9440.
