Annual Pledging

By making an annual pledge to Grace Church, you are committing to the financial support of our mission and ministry: “To build by the grace of God, a loving and joyful community which lives the Gospel through worship, proclamation, and service to each other and to downtown Providence and beyond.”

Annual pledges – usually made in the fall for the next calendar year – demonstrate your commitment to Grace Church and allow its leadership to budget for our ministry and the prudent maintenance of its resources.

You may make your pledge in regular installments – weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annually. Pledge envelopes are supplied for those who wish to place them in the collection plate each week, or you may give through Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) directly from your bank account or online. To make your pledge payments via Electronic Funds Transfer, please click here to securely setup your recurring payments online, or contact the Parish Administrator at 331-3225. Alternatively, you can create recurring pledge contributions using your smartphone by downloading the GivePlus app, entering Grace Church in Providence as your church, and following the simple prompts.

And, should your financial capacity to fulfill your pledge change during the giving year, you may contact the church administrator to adjust your pledge up or down as your circumstances require.

Your pledge is a tax-deductible contribution.

“The disciples, each according to their ability, decided to provide help.” – Acts 11:29

What is Tithing?

Tithing is the opportunity to designate the “first fruits” of your labors to God. It is a goal for giving, not a requirement. All pledges to Grace Church are gratefully received.

A tithe is traditionally the gift of 10% of your annual income (wages, retirement, investments, etc.).

The concept of tithing comes from several biblical sources:

“Bring God a free-will offering proportionate in size to his blessing upon you as judged by the amount of your harvest.” – Deuteronomy 16:10

“Let each one of you give according to how the Lord has prospered you.” – I Corinthians 16:2

There is also the concept of modern tithing – designating 5% of your income to the church and 5% to other worthy nonprofit organizations that you chose to support in fulfilling God’s Kingdom on earth.

A third concept is proportional tithing – designating a set percentage of your income for the church, with the goal of increasing your pledge as circumstances permit.
