BETTER - Pay digitally through Thrivent
You can give via credit card or EFT with no cost to St. John. It does take a few weeks to arrive.
Thrivent covers all processing costs, maximizing your giving to St. John. Please note - St. John does not receive a copy of your donation amount, please keep your receipt from Thrivent.
GOOD - Give Online through MySJC
This allows you to give via draft or via credit card anytime, but it costs St. John 3% of your donation. Just sign in to your account.
You can give here via credit card without a MySJC account, but we highly recommend setting one up! Contact the church office for assistance.

OTHER WAYS TO SUPPORT ST. JOHN
St. John Endowment Fund
We now have an established Endowment Fund that you can use which allows your gift to support the ministry of St. John every year. We have already received over $62,307 to date.
If you own stock, consider the benefits of contributing appreciated stock. There is a double benefit to giving stock that you’ve held for more than a year. First, you avoid paying capital gains tax. In addition, you receive a charitable deduction for the full fair market value of the stock at the time of the gift.
Giving Directly from Your IRA
If you’re at least 70 ½ years of age, you may now give a qualified charity (St. John qualifies) up to $100,000 directly from your IRA without triggering federal income taxes. The gift will also satisfy the fuels for required minimum distributions for the year. Please consult with a tax professional before making such a distribution.
