ccording to the grace of God … like a skilled master builder I laid a foundation, and someone else is building on it. Each builder must choose with care how to build on it. — 1 Corinthians 3:10
EXTEND is the theme for our Annual Stewardship & Mortgage Reduction Appeal.
This is an opportunity for all members and friends of St. John’s Lutheran Church to grow in faith and generosity.
Extend is about raising money, but it also about much more. It is about raising faith. It is about providing for the future. It is about putting into place a real-life, concrete commitment to reach the next generations for Christ.
OUR EXTEND APPEAL include two purposes and two commitments. We are asking all members and friends of St. John’s Lutheran Church to prayerfully consider
• A one-year commitment to our 2015 Annual Stewardship
• A three-year commitment to our Mortgage Reduction Fund that is over and above your annual stewardship giving
MOST OF ALL, keep St. John’s Lutheran Church in your prayers as we focus on Extending! By faith we have come this far, and by faith we will EXTEND the work that Christ is doing through our congregation.
NOVEMBER 15 and 16 Commitment Weekend and Special Fellowship Event – All are encouraged to bring their commitment forms to worship, where they will be dedicated to the glory of God.
JANUARY 10 and 11 Celebration Weekend! – Let’s give thanks for appeal results to date.
