How We Finance Ministry

Saint James' Episcopal Church - Hackettstown, New Jersey

Stewardship

We believe that every good thing we have and every good thing we are is a gift from God. Therefore, we believe that the appropriate way to make our commitment to God's work at St. James' is to give in proportion to our income, that is, in proportion to what we have. Stewardship is not only the foundation of our financial giving, but the foundation for our giving of our time and talent as well. As we each seek God's guidance in our financial giving, we recognize that the tithe (10%) is the goal we strive toward. All financial gifts are a spiritual matter between the giver and God, so all gifts are welcomed. We ask those who are committed to our community and our ministry to make an annual pledge as a way to help them honor God's leading in their financial life.

Fundraising

Fundraising events help us to balance our budget as well as provide opportunities to work together to support our ministries. From bake sales to presence at local events like Hackettstown Community Day, we work to raise money and raise awareness of our dynamic community.
