Dear St. John’s Parishioner,
Our stewardship theme this year, “Every Perfect Gift,” beautifully describes every blessing we receive throughout each day from God: from the embrace of a child to the smile of a loved one. It also speaks to the gifts that St. John’s as a community has bestowed on all of us. This year it is an honor for us to serve you as co-chairs of the Stewardship committee.
While the pandemic still affects us even this year, there finally seems to be a return to normalcy on the horizon. Our faith in God and the strength of our St. John’s family has helped to carry us through. Whether we have made the move back to attending Sundays in-person with our families, or are participating online during the virtual prayers and services, we all have found our own way to share in God’s grace at St. John’s Episcopal Church. Now is the time for us to show our gratitude, our generosity, and our love for the place we all think of as a second home.
There are many ways to give:
1. Complete and mail in your pledge card which was enclosed with our paper letter or pledge online on Realm. This is the preferred method!
2. Click “Stewardship” in the menu bar here on our site. You will find links to Realm and a downloadable version of the pledge card.
St. John’s annual financial budget is planned in accordance with pledge commitments made by us each year. It is this monetary support that enables us to maintain important programs and ministries such as music and worship, outreach and pastoral care and programs for youth and children.
We hope this letter finds you and your family happy and healthy. Know that each pledge is counted and is important; so please consider with generosity what will be your perfect gift.
