Pledge Information and Guidelines
In I Corinthinans 16:2 we read “On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his/her income.” Regular stewardship contributions are easier to manage and keep the Church and her ministries in our thoughts and plans. One way to do this is through automatically scheduled payments sent directly from your bank. In this way, we offer back to God the “first fruits” of our labor, realizing that all we possess comes from Him.
Completing Your Stewardship Pledge Card
Giving and Setting up online contributions
Once you have completed your Stewardship Pledge Card, you must login to ACS to manage your payment methods and gifting schedule. ACS processes our online pledge contributions, and allows you to give via credit card, debit card, checking or savings account. The online system is a great tool that enables parishioners to be in control of their payments to the Cathedral and offers options to each parishioner to define their method of payment and make sure it is set up according to their wishes. It is important that you specify your giving as a “one-time” or “recurring” payment.
Your Pledge is effective from January 2017 through December 2017
Once you have completed and submitted your 2017 Stewardship Pledge Card, please remember that it is based on the calendar year and reflects how much you plan to offer in support of Cathedral Ministries from January through December of said year.
The Cathedral does not automatically set up any parishioner’s charge for the current year unless the parishioner directly requests it. The Cathedral Office cannot charge anyone’s credit card/account past December of the current year without the parishioner’s permission. The parishioner must set up their online giving process each year.
