Jesus Calms the Storm

June 23, 2024

This coming Sunday we hear of Jesus stilling the storm. We join with the disciples in the boat of the church -- we call our church space a "nave": think "navy" -- and pray for Jesus' presence and power in our midst through all life's storms.

Council asks the congregation to pray for Pastor Stacy and her family as they travel for sabbatical. We pray that Pastor feels renewed, refreshed, and refilled with the Holy Spirit and that our congregation does the same, that together we may rededicate ourselves to doing God’s work in the world.

Sabbatical Thanks: Thank you so much to everyone who is helping with things while I am on sabbatical. I hope this will be a time for us all to pause, reflect, and give thanks for the ministry that we get to do together. I will be holding each of you in my prayers as we journey and learn. Thank you so much. Pastor Stacy

Giving Options
 

Saint John's offers an electronic option to safely make both regular offerings and special donations to our church.



Or if you like to give a RECURRING GIFT, you can now contribute automatically from your checking or savings account through your credit/debit card or by a text message. Our electronic giving program offers convenience for you and provides much-needed income consistency for our congregation. But remember, if you are happy with your current giving method, you do not have to change a thing.

If you no longer want to write 52 checks a year or prepare 52 envelopes, this is a giving option for you to consider. And when travel, illness, or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, this program will allow your regular offerings to continue on an uninterrupted basis.

This electronic option allows donations to an array of budget items via a drop-down menu. Some examples are flowers, the cemetery fund, memorials, endowments, scholarships, fuel, and others.
