Dear Friends in Christ Jesus our Lord,
We have received information about providing the means for our members to provide their offerings electronically. Electronic giving allows for the transfer of funds from a bank or credit card account to the St. John’s bank account on a consistent basis (once a week, for example) and/or also on an irregular basis (Lenten services or mission Sundays, for example). This method of giving is becoming more common in our world today. If you are interested in participating in this means of giving, please contact our Financial Secretary, Mary Pfeffer, to receive more information or sign up for this method.
Our usual means of receiving offerings will continue and we encourage those members who sign up for the electronic giving to consider still placing their envelopes in the offering plates that are passed and brought to the altar to remember our thanks to God for all He has given us and especially for the Word we received through our Pastor. Placing the envelopes in the offering plates also provides an example for the children and members around us to witness our participation together in the presentation of thanks to our Lord.
