Communion Rail Offering for December
Benefitting Austin Region Justice for Our Neighbor
Austin Region Justice for Our Neighbor (ARJON) is the December Communion Rail Offering recipient. ARJON, a non-profit law office, welcomes refugees and immigrants into our communities by providing free, high-quality immigration legal services, education, and advocacy. Their services focus on removal defense in family-based and humanitarian law. Founded nationally in 1999 by the United Methodist Church, ARJON helps immigrants navigate the complex system of immigration regulations. ARJON strives to empower immigrants to bring about systematic change through active participation in our community.
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.
We now have permanent space reserved on campus for our three partnership organizations
For as the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring up, so God will cause righteousness and praise to spring up…~ Isaiah 61:11
Isaiah 61 is a passage that speaks strongly to faith and values, it is not surprising that Jesus repeats it in the gospels. The prophet tells us that we can plant and grow even in difficult times, because God is with us, and goodness will come. We are in a time where we long for goodness, rest, and joy. May we remember that God reminds us we will find goodness, so we are asked to plant, grow, harvest, and feed, even in the hard times.
