Your gifts create and sustain this special place for faith.
Making Georgia a holier place for children
We each need A Place for Faith. We are called to create a place for faith for others. Your act of giving to support this work is an important part of how you put your faith into action. We are called to be good stewards of all the resources entrusted to us. Every decision we make about the way we live our lives and use our resources is an act of stewardship and a tangible expression of our faith. And, it is a way for each of us to live into the life that God calls us to through his unconditional love.
Stewardship is often described as caring for something entrusted to you. It is reflected in the way we each use the time, talent, and financial resources that God has given us to bring life and action to our faith through the church. Your pledge is not measured against what others give or do, but is a reflection of your place in your own faith journey. We urge you take this first step if you have never pledged before. For those who have pledged before, we ask you to challenge yourself to take your faith and commitment to a deeper level.
The opportunities we have to grow in our own faith and fulfill the call to pray, love, and serve are boundless. We welcome you to join us on this joyful journey.
Bank Payments & Credit Card Payments
Many parishioners find that it is easy to pay by making monthly or periodic payments through online banking or credit cards. Please remember that credit cards take a percentage of the transaction as a fee, while online bank drafts send all of your pledge to the church.
To set up an automatic bank withdrawal, simply contact your bank and let them know that you would like to set up a reoccurring payment to Holy Innocents' Episcopal Church. You will need to provide them with the amount, our address, and the date(s) in which you would like these payments made. A check will be automatically drafted to HIEC from your bank.
Memorial Gifts and Flowers in Memory or Thanksgiving
Honor and remember others through your gifts to Holy Innocents' by designating them in honor or memory of your loved one.
Offering plates pass through the pews each week and prayers of thanksgiving are said over the gifts placed in them. Contributions can also always be dropped off to Melody at the front desk during office hours.
The generosity of a stock donation is greatly appreciated and its cash value can be applied to any pledge you designate. The following instructions have been provided by Caroline Fleming, Financial Administrator. If you have any questions, please contact Caroline Fleming.
