Hundreds of members of our church family and community suffered the trauma of being flooded, losing their homes and possessions, and being displaced as a result of Hurricane Harvey. Harvey focused us on physically and financially helping and spiritually shepherding all those affected. St. John the Divine's response is a striking example of your church making a difference in many lives in a time of crisis.
Your church is also there for people during all the "Harveys" that impact us every day. Your church makes a difference when a loved one dies, when you face a cancer diagnosis, a divorce, or the illness of a child. Thus, the work we do, as God’s Church, goes on as it has for the past 77 years - making a difference in the lives of individuals, families, and the greater community.
And so, in the midst of all this, we move forward with our fall stewardship campaign to support the work we are called to do. God is using this parish to be the hands and feet of Christ, responding to his call to help others. Each and every person who has been touched by the Spirit of God in your church works together to make a difference.
Your Church Makes a Difference
Your Church Cares
Each of us is a steward of the gifts that we have been given by God. He trusts us to care for and use those gifts wisely and well. Stewardship is everything that you do with what you have been given by God.
The Bible charges us to give a portion of our time, talent, and treasure to the work of the Church. Your stewardship pledge is your commitment to use a portion of God's generous gifts to financially support the ministry of St. John the Divine in the coming year.
