Understanding Financial Stewardship. At Christ Church, we know that financial stewardship is an important component of a balanced spiritual life. Returning to God from that which God has given us is a tangible way to express our faith. When each of us gives as we are able, together we fund ministry within our parish, to the Tyler community, and to the world.

What is a pledge? A pledge is an estinate of giving; some call it a statement of intent. Your pledge amount may be changed, increased or decreased during the year, at any time as your financial circumstances change.

Why should I pledge? Pledging allows you to make intentional decisons about your financial giving. When you plan ahead for your giving, you make conscious choices about spending your money in ways that reflect your faith and values. Receiving your pledge allows our Vestry, the church's governing board, to do for our parish community what you do for your household: plan wisely for the use of your resources in support of the mission and ministry to which God has called us.

How do I pledge? You may pledge by returning a traditional commitment card, using the Christ Church mobile app, or online here. If you do not have the Christ Church app on your phone the link is as follows:

Financial Gifts may be paid by cash or check. Simply place in the offering plate using the envelopes provided in the pews. Checks may be mailed to 118 S. Bois d'Arc, Tyler, Texas 75702. Financial gifts may also be charged to your credit card here

Honorariums/Memorials may be made to Christ Church to honor loved ones or friends.

Estate Planning. The Endowment Fund of Christ Church provides an opportunity for church members to make gifts to Christ Church that are a permanent endowment of financial support for the Church and a living memorial to the donor. The fund is managed professionally, the principal is not drawn upon, and the income from the fund supports mission and capital projects which are above and beyond the established programs funded through the general operating budget. Methods available for gifts to the Endowment Fund include bequests and memorials, securities, life insurance, real estate, and cash.
