Alongside this year's annual campaign, Saint Michael is pleased to launch a historic capital campaign. We give thanks for the generosity and faithfulness that have brought us to this point, and the new commitments that will bring us to where we need to be in the future. We have an unprecedented opportunity to make a meaningful contribution toward building a legacy for future disciples, just like those who came before us. Join us in making a big investment in our community, in our campus, and in our impact in the city and the world.
As you read through our plan, we invite you to prayerfully consider how YOU can further our programs and ministries with a capital gift and an annual gift. Giving back to God’s work through Saint Michael is a sign of gratitude and a key part of deepening our discipleship identity. By joining our efforts to Build our Future and Build the Kingdom, we prepare Saint Michael to make an even greater impact in the future, extending the love of Christ to all.
This is a unique time in Saint Michael’s history—a time that urges us to think boldly, consider necessary improvements to our campus, and enhance our spiritual growth and outreach in the community. This historic capital campaign is focused on Uniting our Community, Reinvigorating our Campus, and Investing in Education.
Support of our annual stewardship campaign, Building the Kingdom, is an essential practice that supports Saint Michael’s growing staff, campus, programs, and ministries. While essential to our operations, it is most important to remember that giving is part of the stewardship of our time, talents, and goods, and that stewardship is a key part of being true disciples of Christ.
Our annual stewardship campaign, like our capital campaign, is grounded in the image of “building.” For more than 75 years, we’ve been “building the kingdom” through our fellowship, our worship, our formation, our outreach, and our many programs. As we set our sights on the future, we do so mindful of the many opportunities for ministry and service immediately before us.
