About Stewardship

Stewardship is about being grateful, responsible stewards of the gifts we receive from God. The tradition of giving back to God and to the church comes from the Biblical practice of “tithing,” which means to give back a tenth of our earnings to God (Numbers 18:26). The Episcopal Church sees stewardship as more than simply contributing money to the church; it’s also about contributing time and talents, and volunteering for ministry and mission. It’s about reaching out to build relationships from a perspective of abundance instead of scarcity.

Stewardship begins not with the mission of the church, nor the needs of its institution, but rather with God’s abundance and our response to it.

Every fall, St. Francis sponsors a Stewardship campaign calling for financial commitments for the following year.  Our budget depends on these commitments which are meant to be given out of love and a belief that we want to sustain and strengthen the church so it can give to others what it has given to us...and allow others to give as it has allowed us to give.

If you wish to make a pledge to St. Francis, it is welcome any time during the year.  Please contact Rev. Stacey:  revstacey@stfrancisnovato.org or 415-892-1609.  You can also pledge online using this Donate link.
