A pledge is a financial commitment made in faith.  After prayer and discernment, each person commits to give a certain amount to the church's ministry for the following year. The form below allows you to submit your pledge online.

In making a financial pledge, it allows you to participate in the spiritual discipline of stewardship.  Our vestry participates in their own spiritual discipline of stewardship as they prayerfully plan our budget for ministry and mission.

This form will allow you to enter your pledge, select your form of payment, and to securely enter credit card or bank draft information if that is the method you choose.

if you need assistance, please contact Louise Symmes, our director of generosity, at lsymmes@sjd.org or 713.354.2218.
