Ways to Support St. John’s Lutheran Church
General Fund – This provides the financial resources for the day to day ministry of the church.
Memorials and Special Gifts
Ladies Aid – To help fund the work and mission of the women’s group.
Youth Group – To help the youth attend National Youth Gatherings and other events.
Altar Guild – For the purchase of items used in worship.
Wee Care – To help cover staff salaries so that tuition rates be kept as low as possible.
Wee Care Scholarship Fund – To grant financial aid to qualified families to help pay some of the cost of sending a child to Wee Care for 2 or 3 day classes.
Capital Replacement – To replace major equipment and appliances that are aging (most are over 22 years old!!), including the furnaces and air conditioners in the church, education wing, and parsonage, and dishwasher and stove at the parsonage.
Roof Repair – To replace the slopped roofs over the church and the education wing are over 22 years old. They are holding their own and will last for some more years, but when new roofs are needed that will certainly cost tens of thousands of dollars.
Parsonage Improvements – For future improvements at the parsonage.
New Lighted Church Signs – For the purchase of a digital display board to replace the current announcement board on the front of the church.
Scholarship Fund (LCMS Colleges) – For students who attend one of the colleges of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Concordia University System or Valparaiso. This also helps students who attend Camp Omega.
CarePortal – This fund helps cover needs of hurting children and families in our community that are brought to our attention through social services.
Associate Pastor Relocation & Installation Fund – Donate towards the pastor’s moving expenses, office updates, and supplies needed to get them plugged in here at St. John’s.
Music Ministry Memorial – Memorials received that are designated for the choir, hand bells or other music ministry.
