Stewardship is about being grateful, responsible stewards of the gifts we receive from God. The tradition of giving back to God and to the church comes from the Biblical practice of “tithing,” which means to give back a tenth of our earnings to God (Numbers 18:26). The Episcopal Church sees stewardship as more than simply contributing money to the church; it’s also about contributing time and talents, and volunteering for ministry and mission. It’s about reaching out to build relationships from a perspective of abundance instead of scarcity. (TEC)

Stewarding St. Andrew's Preschool
St. Andrew's Preschool has served our local community for nearly 60 years. It has been SEA Episcopal's privilege and blessing to be partner with the preschool in a variety of ways - from providing beautiful outdoor grounds, modern and airy classrooms to interaction between the staff and congregation on a regular basis, including overseeing the school's budget, special feast celebrations, and occasional chapel services. The preschool was one of only a few in the Bay Area that secured federal funds early in the Covid crisis enabling them to re-open in July after the mandated shut-down in March. SEA Episcopal is committed to helping St. Andrew's Preschool remain open for this entire school year. Please consider making a designated donation to SEA Episcopal Church for the preschool.

Scrip Gift Cards
What is Scrip?
Scrip is a term that means “substitute money.” The Scrip Program is a fundraiser for our parish that doesn't require any extra money and only a little bit of extra planning. Scrip gift cards are available for you to purchase at face value for use in a variety of retail stores and online businesses (see the list below). The difference of the card value and the discounted price is profit for our parish. Scrip is SEA Episcopal's ongoing fundraising activity and the easiest way for you to help. Contact us here to purchase cards. And thank you!
