There are many ways to make a difference in the life of this community and the world through financial donations.
Our members’ annual pledges keep St. John’s operating and living into what God has planned for us. Pledges constitute most of our annual budget, which we use to fund our mission-critical outreach programs, to support the pastoral care we provide to those in need, and to pay our Clergy and support staff, among many other things. We hold a pledge drive each fall, but you can pledge at other times as well. You can donate a lump sum or spread your contribution out over the year. Will you consider giving to St. John’s through our pledge program? It can create great blessings in the life of this community and, we hope, in your own life.
Donate on one or more of St. John’s 11 “Outreach Sundays,” when the check or cash you place into the offertory plate on Sunday (“loose” offerings not designated toward a member’s pledge to St. John’s) go to one of the many nonprofit groups that St. John’s supports. Each of these groups is selected by St. John’s Outreach Committee based on their impact in helping those in need, locally or internationally. Clergy announce the group at each Outreach Sunday service, and the groups are also listed on the Members page.
A gift through your will, trust, retirement or life insurance plan can make sure St. John’s is here spreading Christ’s love for many years to come. See the Members page for simple options and steps. Contact the church office for more information.
St. John’s holds several events each year to help raise money for special projects that forward our work to build Christ-centered community. Check the calendar, Crossroads newsletter, and Sunday service bulletin for the next opportunities to participate. Events include parish-wide silent and live auctions to help fund our outreach programs and our teens’ spiritual pilgrimage, evening concerts with donations going toward international aid organizations, and much more.
