» New Ways to Give

Posted on: October 4, 2017

We are an evolving congregation and we are always working to meet people “where they are.” One way we are doing this is by offering new giving options by text, website, and app. Now you can contribute financially even if you aren’t in church, if you don’t carry cash or a checkbook, or if you prefer to save paper and give digitally.

Online: Follow this link (or go to our home page and click “Give Now” at the top). Click “Quick Give” to give without setting up an account. Or click “First Time” to set up a profile with your checking account, debit card, or credit card.

By Text: Text 651-273-0753 with the amount you would like to give and the words “2018 Pledge” (to pay your pledge) or “Mustard Seed” (to contribute to a Mustard Seed offering). You will receive a secure URL to visit and enter your credit or debit card info.

By App: Go to your phone’s App Store and download “ConnectNow Giving.” Search for zip code “55102” and choose “St John the Evangelist.” Choose “Sign up for an account” to register. Push the icon of a red plus sign to make your donation.

 

Why Should I Pay by Direct Deposit?

When you pay your pledge by direct deposit, your bank automatically sends your donation to St. John’s each month.

  • You no longer need to write checks.
  • You can keep up with your pledge when you are away from church.
  • Scheduled automatic payments make it easier for St. John’s to manage its budget during the year.

To sign up for direct deposit, follow this link (or go to our home page and click “Give Now” at the top). Click “First Time” to register, then click “Scheduled Giving” to set up recurring donations by credit card or check. Or get a paper enrollment form from the church office.
