We are still limiting attendance to 80 per service to maintain social distancing. In order to do that in an organized way without having to turn anyone away, we’re asking our members to sign up on a first come, first served basis. Also, per the governor's executive order, face masks are now required in public gatherings, churches included. Thanks for your patience as we navigate through these unprecedented times!

Sending Offerings through Bill Pay ~ Several members of St. John’s have asked if there is a way for them to make their weekly offerings automatically either online or by an automatic bank transaction. St. John’s is investigating our online giving options, but are not yet ready to receive online gifts. For the time being, we suggest that our members consider using your bank’s online Bill Pay service to make weekly or monthly gifts to St. John’s. If you have questions about using Bill Pay to make donations, please contact Financial Secretary Mike Thom at 507-217-7671.
