Inspired to give? Donate to St. John's


There are many ways at St. John the Evangelist to give back to the church and community, whether financially, spiritually, or gifts of time and talents. All gifts contribute meaningfully to our lives of faith and service, and each performs a vital role in helping St. John’s to serve and support our growing parish. Please consider serving as a lay leader; organizing coffee hour; making meals for others; serving as a greeter on Sunday mornings; lending a hand at our Sunday receptions; helping to change light bulbs, or even flower bulbs! Your presence, and your contributions – big, small and in between – are always welcome at St. John’s.

                        • Sunday offering

Every Sunday “we offer our selves, our souls and bodies” to God, in the words of the Communion prayer. At the offertory, we demonstrate our gratitude to God in support of St. John’s through our offerings. Simply place your offering in the plate during the service. If you are paying with a check, or do not need a record of your giving, a pledge envelope is not necessary. If you would like pledge envelopes, please be in touch with the parish office at


Mail your gift

You can mail in a gift at any time by sending your check to the address below. Please write in the memo line who or what you would like your gift to be put toward, such as flowers or a candle in memory of someone; to the Rector’s Discretionary Fund, which helps people in our community; to our Capital Campaign; or to the restoration of our historic Hook & Hastings Organ. It’s OK if you don’t know the “official” name of our funds; but the more specific you can be, the better we can honor your wishes.
