Communion Rail Offering

Communion Rail Offering for September
Hope Food Pantry

Hope Food Pantry, located at Trinity Church in the Hyde Park neighborhood, provides free groceries to those struggling to make ends meet. Saint John's UMC, Saint Luke UMC, Tarrytown UMC, and Trinity Church, support this important effort for those facing food insecurity. The City of Austin has recently partnered with Hope Food Pantry through their Plus 1 Program. In 2022, Hope Food Pantry provided groceries to 4602 households. Over 6400 hours of volunteer time was donated to delivering, sorting, stocking, preparing and distributing approximately 207,090 pounds of food. This is an equivalent of 172,575 meals. Saint John's has remained a long-time supporter of Hope Food Pantry through their many volunteers, board members, food donations, and financial contributions.

On the first Sunday of the month, your Communion Rail Offering may be placed in the boxes located at the altar rail. All month long, you may also give to the communion rail online, by mail, or by placing an envelope in the offering plate. In the memo line, please designate your gift for “Communion Rail Offering”.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the “General Fund” offering?

Each fall, staff and volunteers of Saint John’s set the financial priorities for the next year through the general fund budget. General Fund offerings, pledges to the General Fund and other items make up the revenue for the General Fund budget. The budget provides the financial resources for adult, youth and children educational ministries, worship ministries, human resources, general administrative and facility expenses.

What is the “Communion Rail” offering?

On the first Sunday of the month, communion is offered in worship. After each person receives the communion elements, each person is invited to pray or meditate at the altar rail. If you so choose, you may leave a small financial token at the altar rail. Each month a different mission initiative is selected to receive the offerings gathered at the rail. The pre-selected mission initiative will be announced in the service and that week’s newsletter.

What is the Saint John’s Endowment Fund?

The Endowment Fund of Saint John's was established in 1976 to provide members and friends of the church the opportunity to make charitable gifts to a permanent endowment of financial support. By including Saint John's in your will or estate plans, you can significantly strengthen our church's vital mission both locally and around the world. Grants from this fund support many strategic plan initiatives around our community. Click Here to read our FAQs about the Endowment Fund.
