So far, we have received 89 pledges for a total of $230,266. If you have not sent in your pledge card please do so as soon as possible so that we can complete our budget for 2020. THANK YOU!!!


“Shining Our Light” is our Pledge Drive theme this year, taken from the fifth chapter of Matthew’s Gospel.  The theme speaks to us as individuals and as a community of faith.

Individually, each of us is called to make sure we are letting God’s light shine through our work, our friendships, our service and our giving. We are called to be light bearers. It is a powerful calling.

But we can’t always be as bright as we are called to be on our own. As a faith community, St. Richard’s must shine the light of Christ through our worship, welcoming, pastoral care and outreach ministry to the wider community. How we use our time, talents, and treasure determines how brightly we are shining our collective light.

St. Richard’s Church is committed to shining as bright as possible in as many ways as possible and empowering each other to find our light and contribute in various ways. Some of us make sure the snacks at the coffee hour are delicious and abundant. Others participate in our worship either by singing in our Schola or assisting in the service. Still others prepare the worship space with flowers or altar vestments. Many of us also represent the church in our participation of various community service programs around Central Florida.

While during this pledge drive, each of us is asked to make a generous financial pledge for the coming year, we can also be grateful for the many gifts of time, food, and  skills from virtually every member of this church.

Let’s work together to shine our light in our church, in our community and in our lives by pledging to support St. Richard’s with our money.

Roof Loan PNG

St. Richard's has a great expanse of Roof! It's our most prominent physical feature. 
In 2015 we replaced the roof on the worship space and on all the buildings on the property. 
We financed a loan for the roof with Commerce National Bank and Trust at 4% for 15 years. 
We ask all of our members to pledge $20 a month toward paying the roof loan in addition to their pledge. This pays the interest on the loan that we have budgeted for in 2020. 

Thank you for pledging to the operating fund and to the roof loan. If you are looking to make an additional charitable gift in 2019 please consider making a gift to St. Richard's to pay the Roof Loan Principal. Here is what the impact can be:

"Wouldn’t it be great if St. Richard’s Episcopal Church were offered 44% interest on your pledge or gift donation?  Actually, that’s possible. Pledges and gifts made now and designated as “Roof loan principal only” amplify the impact of your giving in two ways without placing any additional burden on you the giver.

1) Gifts designated “Roof loan principal only” avoid St. Richard’s being charged 4% annual interest over the remaining 8 years of the loan. (4% x 8 = 32%)

2) Gifts and pledges designated for “Roof loan principal only” are not taxed by the diocese at 12% as most other budget items are.

To take advantage of these multipliers simply indicate “Roof loan principal only” on the memo line of your check or when giving online."
