After 100 years as a mission church in the Diocese of Virginia, St. Peter’s began the process of becoming a self-sustaining church. This is a signiﬁcant moment in the life of our congregation, as we stand on the shoulders of those who came before us, who invested themselves and their resources into this church that they loved.
Now is our opportunity to carry on their legacy and invest ourselves here. There is no other church in Richmond like St. Peter’s. Here, people from different races and socio-economic backgrounds gather to worship together in what has historically been called the nation’s most segregated hour. That is not true at St. Peter’s.
The year 2020 has impacted each of our lives differently. We have our own “One Together” stories of how God has gifted us, built our ministries and our relationships. Our pledge participation, our involvements in ministries and our faith in continuing church mission have been sustained. Together we are “One Together” in Ministry and Service.
Each individual or family has received a pledge card for request of commitment to continue the progress and programs in 2021. Our 2021 appeal to you to support a balanced budget, to continue the core mission as a family of faith, and continue living our stewardship as Christians. Please review your pledge card, pray and choose to increase your pledge in response to God’s call to us. On Sunday, January 10, 2021, we will receive and bless all cards pledged. This will be held through our virtual service.
You may mail your pledge information to St. Peter’s Episcopal Church or send a notification to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may make your pledge payments and other financial gifts using on online giving page (below).
Our neighborhood needs St. Peter’s, as people from different backgrounds live near each other but may not have places to be together. And our nation needs St. Peter’s, as people with differing viewpoints and backgrounds are increasingly divided from each other. St. Peter’s is a place for all of us to learn to love God and love our neighbor together.
The rich legacy we have inherited and our mission in this neighborhood and nation will continue into the future through what we collectively give: work, wealth, and wisdom.
The vestry and clergy are grateful and thankful to serve you.
We are excited to announce the addition of an online giving option. We are partnering with DonorBox to offer a secure option that allows one-time and recurring donations.
