Giving is Discipleship
The mission of the church is to build, form, and sustain disciples. Therefore, the aim of stewardship development at church is not only to finance the annual operating budget but also to change lives and strengthen our faith as Jesus followers. The Bible contains many messages about personal finance, and generous giving is just one way we demonstrate our trust in God as our provider and show our gratitude for the financial blessings bestowed upon us. Consistent, planned generosity also makes it possible for St. John to budget and dream responsibly. Members who participate in our secured online automated giving program help us succeed by improving functionality and reducing administrative costs. Given the busy pace of everyday life, we invite you to consider whether this convenient solution is right for you.
Electronic giving is convenient for you and provides much-needed consistency for our church. There is no cost for you to participate. If you are currently giving on a weekly basis, you will no longer need to write out 52 checks a year or prepare 52 envelopes. And when travel, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, this program will allow your weekly offerings to continue on an uninterrupted basis.
