St. Andrew’s Presbyterian provides multiple ways for members, friends and visitors to Live Generously, including through their financial support of the ministries of St. Andrew’s.
Tithes & Offerings
The day-to-day work of St. Andrew’s is funded through our operating budget, financed in large part by tithes and contributions offered by our members, friends and visitors. In addition to keeping the lights on and funding the programs at St. Andrew’s, we “tithe” approximately 13% of our operating budget to support our external ministry partners both here in Houston and throughout the world.
The amount that each person or household contributes is a personal decision between them and God. All donors will receive a statement in the mail at the end of each calendar quarter showing all their giving for that year.Support the Church
Capital Improvements & Debt Retirement
The recent acquisition of adjacent properties on Bissonnet, renovation of the Warren Family Center multiuse space, and construction of a gathering area on the Rutgers Street side of the church required us to borrow money over and above funds raised by our Capital Campaign. We would like to retire the remaining debt to ensure that our future use of revenue is as efficient and fruitful as possible.Help Eliminate Debt
The long-term vitality of St. Andrew’s ministries is supported by gifts to our Permanent Funds which have been established as an Endowment to provide ongoing financial support toward our Programs, Missions, Benevolences and Capital Facilities. As an endowment, the principal in the Permanent Funds is held and invested in perpetuity while the earnings from that investment may be used to support the work of the church. St. Andrew’s Endowment is an excellent way to make a Legacy donation of a lasting nature.Build Endowment
