Connecting our giving and our hearts changes us and others. That’s God at work, and it’s why our generosity matters. As you think about the many ways in which you’ve been blessed to be a blessing we want to challenge you to consider your financial commitment to God’s Mission and Ministry in the coming year. Together, we can step more boldly into our vision of being The Connecting Church, providing hope and wholeness for all people, with specific emphasis on children, seniors and people in poverty.

Whether you make a financial commitment every year, or this is the first, please prayerfully consider how God is calling you to joyfully give in ways that change lives, including yours!

Give Online

Giving online allows you to set up an authorized withdrawal for a specified amount from your bank account or a credit/debit card. You determine the frequency of your automatic gifts: one time, weekly, semi‐monthly or monthly.

Special Offering

Lutheran Campus Ministry

Our Special Offering in October-November will provide support for Lutheran Campus Ministry at the University of Minnesota. The college years are often critical in the spiritual formation of young adults. Students need a safe place to challenge their beliefs and explore new ideas in order to make faith their own. Pastor Kate Reuer Welton is doing outstanding work with students from all over the world on the U of M Campus, developing leaders for God’s work in the world.

2017 Commitment

There are three ways to make your commitment for God’s work through Prince of Peace:

  • 2017 Annual Pledge online – Complete your pledge electronically. It’s quick and easy! This option records your pledge only. If you wish to change your electronic giving amount, select “Become a Sustainer” below.
  • 2017 Annual Pledge (.pdf) – Your pledge may be placed in the offering during worship or returned to the church office.
  • Become a Sustainer – Automatic giving is a great way to consistently support the work of the Church. Your enrollment or change in giving through electronic giving will automatically record your pledge as well.

Questions on your pledge or on automatic giving? Contact the Finance Office at 952‐898‐9390.

Appreciated Securities

Gifts of appreciated securities (stocks, mutual funds, bonds) may also be donated to Prince of Peace, and may provide significant tax benefits to the donor. Talk with your tax advisor. Please note that gifts of appreciated securities, and particularly mutual funds, may need additional time to process and will need the attention of your financial advisor/broker well before December 22 to be sure the transfer is completed by the end of the tax year. Fax the stock donation form below to 952‐898‐9397, “Attention: Jane Victorey,” or contact Jane at 952‐898‐9313 or jvictorey@popmn.org.
