Communion Rail Offering

Communion Rail Offering for September
World Communion Sunday

On World Communion Sunday, United Methodists, in conjunction with other denominations worldwide, participate in communion to recognize our unity in Jesus Christ. This universal and inclusive connection is the foundation of the special offering for World Communion Sunday. Donations support racial and ethnic students in achieving their goals and transforming communities. These funds provide scholarships, grants, mentoring, and training for leadership development in the U.S. and throughout the world.

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.

What do I need to know about Required Minimum Distributions from my IRA?

If you have an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) and are at a certain age, there are certain stipulations required by the IRS. IRS law allows these taxpayers to make direct, annual transfers of up to $100,000 from their IRA using Qualified Charitable Distributions (QCDs) to a church without treating the distribution as taxable income. If you choose to make a QCD from your IRA account this year, please consider Saint John's. To learn more, please contact your tax professional or fiduciary representatives.
