It’s common for churches to see what’s been thoughtfully (or painfully) coined “the summer giving slump” where giving declines for most churches between May and August. Like CSMSG, many churches see a twenty percent or more decrease in giving during these months due to members being on vacation, going to BBQs, traveling with family, etc. You can help CSMSG avoid the slump in two ways:

1.  Pay your pledge in full now, instead of at the end of the year;

2.  Send in those pledge payments you will miss while you are away this summer. You may give online at any time from anywhere. Go to, click on Stewardship, then click on Give Now

Despite the slump, God is at work at CSMSG this summer! We are gearing up for what is sure to be a spectacular fall. Thank you for your support!

If you have any questions about making a financial contribution to CSMSG, please contact Alexis Posnanski, Director of Stewardship and Giving, at or 314.518.1478.
