“As each has received a gift, employ it for one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” – 1 Peter 4:10
Ways to Give
God has blessed each of us with gifts of time, talent, and financial resources (treasure). It is up to us to act as good stewards for what He has given us.
Our Church offers many opportunities to give of our time, beyond attending worship. Some options include: helping with office tasks, setting up for special events, cleaning up after special events, and more. Contact the church office for more details.
Do you have a special talent for baking? Sewing? Crunching numbers? Conversation? Each of us has a talent for something that the church or the wider community needs. For ideas, check out the Time and Talent Opportunities section of the monthly SJUCC Bongards Buzz eNewsletter. Or ask Pastor Shuji or Michelle Bachmann, our Consistory President, where you might fit in. We have a place for everyone!
Our ministries, programs, staff, building, and community also depend on financial resources. Giving money is another way for us to return to God a portion of what He gives to us. Our congregation takes seriously the responsibility to be a good steward of these resources, as we support the work of St. John’s and the wider church and community.
