Ninth Sunday after Pentecost

August 14, 2022   Tenth Sunday After Pentecost   Luke 12:49-56

The gospel for this coming Sunday is surprisingly harsh: being a believer brings not peace, but dissension. Come to worship to hear about this: come to pray. The bread and wine will strengthen us for our future, no matter what comes.

Summer worship times: Santuary worship 9:00 am and Zoom worship 10:30 am.

· 2022 -Year of Vision · 


The Year of Vision Memory Verse:

“And the one who was seated on the throne said, 'See, I am making all things new.'”
(Revelation 21:5a).

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.
