STEWARDSHIP at St John 2019


Gracious Act of Giving   
2 Corinthians 8:7

This past week we have begun our focus on stewardship, an essential part of being a follower of Jesus. God has graciously given us all things and we respond with our “gracious acts of giving.” When our individual contributions are brought together, we can accomplish much more for the mission and ministry of St John. How is God moving you to “gracious acts of giving”?
You will receive a letter in the mail with more details and encouragement about your stewardship at St John. This letter will contain a Pledge Card, a tool to help you consider how you can contribute financially to the ministry of St John. We ask that you bring your Pledge Card to worship on Sunday, June 16 or Wednesday, June 19.
  • Blessing of the Pledges – June 16 & 19 - Bring your Pledge Cards to worship (or return to the Church Office) as we ask God’s blessing on our ministry at St John.

Congregational Meeting

This meeting, part of our quarterly Voter’s Meetings, is an opportunity for you to share your ideas for ministry at St John. 

As preparation for the meeting, think about these questions:

  • What are the present strengths of St John Lutheran?

  • What specific things need improvement at St John Lutheran?

  • What are some needs of the community around St John Lutheran?

We will have FOOD and will show a movie for children - so now there is no excuse not to attend!

We want to hear from YOU! 
See you Sunday!
