Your Financial Support has never been more important! 


Whether you are making a recurring, weekly gift or considering an extra “one-time” gift, your financial support of the ministry of St. John’s has never been more important. Our ability to expand this ministry … both church and school … will be dependent on the financial resources to do so.

UNRESTRICTED / GENERAL FUND OFFERINGS

The “life blood” of our ongoing ministry are the unrestricted offerings that church members and friends provide. Your regularly, ongoing gifts for this purpose help “pay the bills” … everything from utilities to salaries, from worship supplies to repairs and maintenance. You can provide a gift in many ways: by means of check or cash placed in an envelope, or by using a bill pay service provided by your bank. We even have a PayPal link on the website if you would like to make an online gift. EVERY part of our ministry is impacted by your offerings.

CAPITAL INVESTMENTS

Project Welcome 2.0 is just one example of the ongoing capital investments we must make to sustain our ministry. Church members from years past have provided us some wonderful facilities, but they need regular maintenance and periodic upgrades. Infrastructure “wears out,” and needs change. There is an important project to meet any donor’s expectation for supporting the ministry we share! We have gathered information on projects from equipment to flooring to roofing to landscaping and more.

We are pursuing more and more grant funding from local and state sources, all of which require a “match,” often as much as 50%. While the recent Secured School Safety Grant from the Indiana Department of Homeland security is great, we need to match the state’s $50,000 with $25,000 of our own.

SCHOLARSHIPS

St. John’s provides $120,000 annually in scholarships for our SJLS students. Through the Lutheran Scholarship Granting Organization of Indiana (https://www.lutheransgo.org/) donors can provide for these scholarships AND receive a 50% tax credit good towards their Indiana state tax liability (both individuals and corporations).

If you have any questions, please speak with Pastor Albers. The Governing Board and other leaders are always seeking an opportunity to better sustain our important ministry.
