Building for the Future

GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform our communities and the world.

We're joining millions of people in this global movement for good!

Take a moment to reflect on what St. John's means to you:

Sharing it, Living it, Being Bold with it!

We know that we are part of a larger story. This building, this church, and this ministry here at St. John's is bigger than just this moment—there is a history that we have been given. There is a future to which we turn our hearts and our minds.

We're a faith community that works to empower people to learn about God through Scripture, influence the world in a Christ-like manner, and find peace, love, hope and joy in God.

Now more than ever we are called upon to make a difference

And we do this by sharing generously. 
Together with our community, St. John's responds to that call by reflecting God’s love and generosity and continuing to live out God’s purpose for St John’s in our neighbourhood. 

Faithfully living out who God is calling us to be!

Your generous donation can be a one-time gift or a pledge over a designated period.

St. John’s is our home — a church where we hear the Spirit guiding us and where we are strengthened to respond to where God is leading us. A place where we find rest and friendship as well as offer generous hospitality to our neighbours.

 

Your thoughtful donation ensures we can continue to offer a warm, well-maintained, safe, clean, and friendly space for all.

Thank you for prayerfully considering how you might offer a financial gift to help support our everyday ministry. Together we help to reflect the love and the generosity that we have been given to the world and the community around us.

Your giving makes possible the everyday work of St. John's.

THANK YOU!!
