Stewardship

There are four ways to give:

  1. Text Stm to 73256 (REALM). Standard text messaging rates may apply.
  2. Give online on our website. Click on the Giving link at the top of the page.
  3. Mail your tithe or offering to St. Michael's Church, 71 Broad St., Charleston, SC 29401
  4. On Sunday mornings, just drop it in the offering plate!

The St. Michael's Church Simple Legacy Planned Giving Initiative provides your church with long term stability. Legacy giving is a lot less complicated than you think: Today, more than 55% of individuals do not have a will. Legacy giving is the most inclusive strategy for giving. Many older members hold the majority of their wealth in liquid assets such as land, small businesses or collectibles. St. Michael's Church can convene legacy conversations and provide consultation on these important decisions.

For more information on tithing, donations, or making a bequest, please see our Giving webpage.
