Supporting Christ’s work
We are incredibly grateful for all who give financially to support St. John’s. This provides St. John’s the resources so others come to know Christ, lives are changed and the vulnerable supported in our community and beyond.
Our members do that, because they love Jesus and want others to meet him, as the Bible says: ‘God loves a cheerful giver’. If you'd like an overview of the Bible’s teaching about giving, click here.
