Giving at St. Bart's

Supporting the future of our parish


St. Bart's is a generous faith family, recognizing that all we are and all we have comes from God. We are asked to give our time, our talents, and our treasure as tangible signs of our faith and our commitment to God and our church. 


Each year we kick off the annual stewardship or giving campaign using multi-colored post-it notes to write in our own words, "Why I Give." Each note is placed on the sanctuary windows to share our faith and personal commitment to the future of St. Bart's. Thank you for supporting St. Bart's!

Giving at St. Bart's

As a church, we believe we are called to respond to the generosity of the gospel by supporting our church, community, and world. We express our love to God by giving our time, talents, and treasure. Giving is not dues to the church, giving is an act of faith and commitment to ensure that the work and ministry of St. Bart’s can continue each year and for generations to come.

Planned Giving


The Legacy Society was established for planned giving that creates a legacy for future generations. It is open to anyone who confirms making provisions for a donation to St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church in their estate plan.


While an estate plan determines a destiny for your assets after your passing, making a planned gift to our church also communicates your values, wishes, and memories as well as financial support for St. Bart's programs and ministries today and generations to come.
