Christian Stewardship is faithful management of all the gifts God has given to humankind- time, talents, the created world and money, including accumulated, inherited and appreciated assets.  Three areas described below enable us to fulfill our mission at Bruton Parish Church, and joyfully “walk through history into the future with Christ”.
 
Annual Giving
 
Bruton Parish relies on the financial support of its members and all who consider it their church home.  Every fall, members are asked to make a pledge for the coming year.  Those joining the parish may make their pledge at any point in the year.  A pledge signifies your willingness to commit an amount-- your “best estimate”-- towards the work of God at this place and time. 
 
 
 
 
 
Planned Giving
 

Parishioners can answer God’s call to faithful Christian stewardship by considering the Bruton Parish Church Foundation, Inc. in their estate plans. Foundation assets are invested to grow for the future.  A portion of the earnings may be distributed annually for the benefit of Bruton Parish, to the greater glory of God.  Choosing the Foundation as a recipient of one’s resources can be of benefit to both the donor and the parish.  

Individuals or couples who remember the Foundation through their will, trust, or other planned gift, regardless of value, will be recognized as members of the 1715 Society.   Periodically, 1715 Society members are listed (with permission) in The Chronicle or (in the future) on a permanent display, as a way to recognize them for taking this extraordinary step.   For more information, please email Marty Easton, Development Director, measton@brutonparish.org.
