Giving Opportunities

St. John’s offers several options to make it easy for you to support our many ministries:

  • Of course, you can always just put a check or cash in the offering plate or the offering box. If you’re a member of St. John’s, be sure to include your envelope number so that your donation can be properly credited.
  • Vanco, our eGiving provider, has a mobile app that can be downloaded for free from the App Store or Google Play-for information on how to use this app click here: pdf (;
  • You can also set up regular deductions from your checking account through Vanco by completing the Simply Giving form and returning it to the Parish Administrator;
  • You can use the QR code found in your bulletin or this link for periodic deductions;
  • Many employers offer the ability to have your donations deducted from your paycheck and then forward those donations on to us. Some even offer a generous match!  Contact your Human Resources Department to see if this is a possibility for you.
  • If you are a member of Thrivent, you are eligible to apply for two Action Team Grants each year to benefit your church. Through the Thrivent Financial charitable grant program, members can select where Thrivent Financial distributes part of its charitable grant funds – including St. John’s.  Don’t miss this opportunity to help support St. John’s. Go to or call 1-800-Thrivent and state “Thrivent Choice” to designate funds.  You can learn more about Thrivent at
  • Donating appreciated stock will benefit the church and provide a potential tax benefit to the donor. If interested in donating stock to St. John’s, contact our Church Treasurer, Shirley Platzer.

Thank you for your generosity!
