St John Evangelical Lutheran Church, Sandusky, Ohio is pleased to offer a new electronic option to safely make 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 new electronic giving program offers convenience for you and provides much-needed donation 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 new option for you to consider. And, when travel, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, this program will allow your weekly offerings to continue on an uninterrupted basis.
This new electronic option allows donations to an array of items via a drop-down menu. Some examples are flowers, the cemetery fund, memorials, endowments, scholarships, fuel, and others.
