SCRIP

Never too early to plan ahead for Christmas giving.  It's easy to budget holiday spending when using scrip.  Purchase scrip cards now to use or give as gifts. We have an updated list of scrip available on the scrip table outside the office. Remember we are ordering scrip the first Tuesday of each month, get your order in now for October.  If you have any questions see Donna or Maggie Vesey.

DEMONSTRATE YOUR THANKFULNESS THIS SEASON
Each holiday season, St. John anticipates and relies on a seasonal increase in contributions.  It is through the donations of every individual and family in the congregation that we are able to carry on our work throughout the year. If you need a convenient way to make recurring contributions or plan to make an additional gift before the end of the year, we encourage you to check out our electronic giving option.  As the pace of life speeds up around the holidays, you may find electronic giving a most welcome way to make contributions. To set up a recurring giving schedule, complete a Joyful Response authorization form and return it to the church office.  Forms can be found on counter in the church office.  Thank you for your generosity and support!
