Give In Person
We invite you to give in person during our Sunday service.
Lyn Loeffler spoke on Sunday, August 8th about how giving to Saint John's impacts our community.
The Communion Rail Offering for September is Peace With Justice Sunday. It is a special offering made annually to the United Methodist Church. The UMC Book of Resolutions states that, "We must renew our call for social transformation, for the quest to open the doors of opportunity for all, to distribute resources more equitably, and to provide better care for persons in need." This offering enables the UMC to have a voice in advocating for peace and justice through a broad spectrum of global programs.
To donate, use whichever method of donation you prefer and put "Communion Rail Offering" in the memo line.
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.
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.
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.
Other opportunities for giving are made available from time to time. Visit our website regularly to find ways you may give so we may create a community where God's love changes people and God's people change the world.
