"For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
-- Matthew 6:21

A Pledge to St. James

We acknowledge that Jesus Christ is the giver of all that we are and all that we have, and that we are entrusted to be stewards of His gifts. We believe that, as stewards, God desires that we joyfully give our treasure, time and talent to His glory. We acknowledge stewardship as a living witness of our faith and the tithe as a standard of Christian giving. We will work toward tithing as part of our total stewardship commitment and pray that the seeds of generous giving will grow the kingdom of God.

We invite you, our St. James family, to join us in this affirmation of stewardship — gratefully acknowledging our blessings and giving out of thanksgiving.

Giving Toward Your Pledge

  • Bill Pay through your financial institution - Fulfilling your pledge through Bill Pay puts you in charge, directing your financial institution to send automatic, periodic payments to St. James. Most financial institutions provide this service with no fees, but check with your financial institution. Simply set up a new payee in the name of "St. James Episcopal Church, P.O. Box 126, Baton Rouge LA 70821" at your bank's website. Each time you want to contribute toward your pledge, you’ll enter the date and amount of the contribution, or you can schedule regular payments of a given amount. Your bank will print and mail a check that will pull money from your account.
  • Automatic payments through ACS - ACS (Automated Church Systems) will send requests to your financial institution (credit/debit card issuer, or as electronic check) as you direct in our secure financial portal, here.
