Dear St. Paul's Community,
This is an unprecedented time for us in our nation, in Key West and at St. Paul's. As businesses struggle, public services are limited, even as attendance for worship is restricted, we are still the Church, still the body of Christ. St. Paul's role in our lives and in our community is more important that ever. We are going to continue to pray together, be a church, and be one in spirit. We are going to need to reach out and care for each other, and for our neighbors. As the needs become clearer, we will act. We need to be ready. To be ready, we also must continue the practice of stewardship. With restrictions on Sunday service attendance, we can only pass the plate to a limited few. If you have typically made your contribution in the plate, please consider continuing to make your gifts to St. Paul's electronically or by mail.
Necessary procedures to protect the public health are already taking a toll on finances at St. Paul’s. While we hope that pledge and regular attendee contributions will eventually equal what is being missed, “plate” collections (the money given by one time visitors) at regular services, and donations collected in the box during the week are probably lost for good.
How can you help?
You can mail in your donation. The mailbox is checked daily and volunteers log in donations and make bank deposits. The Church’s mailing address is 401 Duval Street, Key West, Fl 33040.
In person We do not urge anybody to leave their home for the sole purpose of bringing a donation to the church. But, if you are on the island and will be out anyway, checks can be left at the office. If a volunteer is at the office, it can be delivered personally. (Please understand that the office person will still need to practice social distancing and not be able to remain in close proximity to visitors.) If nobody is at the office there is a lock box that is checked daily by the office door. The size of the box and the opening probably won’t accept large envelopes, so only the check should be inserted.
Donate Online You may select among several options to donate online. This service does come with a service fee to the church. If you would like to cover the fee, approximately 3% extra will do that. (For example, adding $6 to a $200 contribution will yield approximately $200.)
If you are unable to contribute at this point, please make a personal commitment to yourself to forward later on whatever you would given if present, when the danger has passed. Almost all the expenses of the parish (utilities, maintenance, insurance, etc.) continue whether or not the congregation can gather. It is important that the current loss in contributions not become permanent.
We’ve made great strides in the past few months toward financial stability. The virus and the necessary cancellation of opportunities to gather are a serious blow. But, working together, we can assure that St. Paul’s remains a solid rock in our community.
