TO OUR CONGREGATION AT ST. PETER’S — Thanks to each of you for your strong stewardship giving through the first two months of the year. Year to date giving through February, 2019 is $176,211 vs. $153,430 in 2018. That is a 14.8% increase. However, some of that increase is from “advanced gifts” which covers the entire year. Our Stewardship goal (and we hope yours) is a 3% increase over 2018. We can do it! Stewardship Committee
