Giving and Stewardship


 
Giving is a Spiritual Practice

Our parish, like all Episcopal parishes, is supported almost entirely by annual pledges from our members and friends. Pledges allow us to carry out the mission God calls us to. They also allow our parish to support the broader mission of the church through our diocese and the national Episcopal Church. We give out of thanksgiving for all God has done for us. We give knowing that we are stewards of time, talent, and money, called by God to discern how best to use these resources to bless and love in Christ's name. Pledges are not "dues," and there is no set amount to give.  

Online Banking Bill Pay

One way to give is to set up a one-time or recurring online payment using your bank's web site or mobile service. When you set up an online payment to CGS, your bank will mail a check on your behalf directly to the church. Most banks do not charge for this service so your entire gift will go directly to the Church of the Good Shepherd.

Use this address when you are completing your bank's online account setup:

Church of the Good Shepherd
Treasurer
9 Russell Avenue
Watertown, MA 02472

You can use the memo line to indicate a specific mission or focus for your contribution, like "Landscaping" or "Memorial gift".
