Transformed People Transform People

St. John’s Stewardship 2022

“And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works...” - Hebrews 10:24

 

This year, Commitment and Celebration Sunday is Nov. 21, 2021.  We are asking you to think about this next year’s giving in four ways:

  1. Pledge if you can!  The future is bright for St. John's.  We have a dynamic new Associate Pastor in Pastor Kim Kyllo and we just welcomed a very talented, wise, and faith-filled Director of Music in Dr. Dennis Friesen-Carper.  Your pledges and commitments will propel even more energy and ministry at St. John's

  2. Read these inserts and look at this year's St. John's stewardship brochure  

  3. Give JOYFULLY!  Your JOYFUL faithfulness is the tool of our endurance     

  4. Have each other’s backs.  Not everyone is experiencing the pandemic the same way.  If you can give, please do!  And consider pitching in something for those whose circumstances are not as well-off as your own.  If you are less-well-off, know that we love what you can do and that we as the whole of St. John’s will aim high for God!

  5. Above all, know this:  “A gift opens doors;  it gives access to the great.” - Proverbs 18:16.  The pandemic world needs God’s work.  It needs St. John’s people who are transformed by the grace and love of Christ so others can be transformed by that grace and love as we embody it.  When people see transformed people, they have the chance of having their lives transformed also

We praise God for each and every one of you and for all you do for St. John’s, and for God in the world!  Thank you, in advance, for your prayer, pledging, and giving when we open the new year of 2022 as Transformed People Transforming People.  God bless you!
