Stewardship is not fund-raising at St. John’s. No gimmicks. No guilt. No desperate pleas.

That is because, in a discipleship church, giving is neither a duty nor an option; it is the pathway to a full life lived in the presence of God. Our need to give is as real as our need for air, water, sleep, and exercise. Giving is how we fulfill our purpose as creatures made in God’s image. Giving is how we draw close to God.

We ask a simple question of our congregation: Do you believe in the message of Jesus that we proclaim here at St. John’s? A congregation that truly believes this will not have to be badgered or guilted into giving. It will do so joyfully, as much as possible.

Do you believe in the message of Jesus that we proclaim at St. John’s? Do you believe it in your heart? If so, we invite you to open your treasure to the work we are doing, and in so doing, you will open your heart to God.

Checks may be sent to:

QR Code


We have a QR code!  What does that mean?  A QR code enables people who would like to donate to St. John’s but don’t have cash on hand or no longer write checks.  A QR code takes you straight to our GIVE page on our website where you can just enter what you’d like to give to and enter your credit card there.  Our website is a safe and secure way to give to this faith community you love and the QR code is the easy way to get you there, so you don’t have to remember where on the website to click.  Scanning a QR code using your device is straightforward: For older phones, open the QR reader application that you have downloaded or for newer phones, open your camera on your smartphone. Point it at the QR code – you should be able to point your camera from any angle and still receive the necessary information!  It’s that simple, at least for those who are used to using these updated technologies.  Give it a try!  Try it during the offering time or whenever you are at church or online watching on Facebook Live.
