Frequently Asked Questions

What does it mean to make a pledge?

Each year Gloria Dei asks for estimates of giving to help us develop our Ministry Spending Plan for the coming year. Making a pledge is an informal commitment to contribute financially to the coming year. Making a financial pledge is also a spiritual commitment to share in the mission and ministry of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church.

How do I pay my pledge?

You can request weekly offering envelopes, place a check in the offering plate on Sunday, or set up and manage a recurring contribution online, through your financial institution, or through Simply Giving.

I’m thinking about pledging, but I’m concerned about my financial status. If I have a change in my status, can I adjust my pledge?

Yes, your estimate of giving can be changed (up or down) at any time for any reason in confidentiality. Contact the Church Financial Secretary

I don’t have a lot of financial resource to give right now. Will my pledge of a small amount make a difference?

Yes! If everyone in the congregation committed to give even a small amount, the church could surpass our current level of giving.

 Your gift makes a great deal of difference. Making and keeping a financial pledge to the church helps keep all our financial activity in a spiritual perspective, recognizing that all we have is a gift from God.

What does it mean to be a good steward?

In modern terms, a steward is a ‘manager,’ given responsibility to administer faithfully all that God has entrusted to us – making a difference in the world as a follower of Jesus Christ.
