All members will continue to receive envelopes, including envelopes for special collections (Christmas, Neighbors In Need, One Great Hour of Sharing, Advent, etc.). Regular collections will be taken each week as usual. EFT participants can mark "EFT" on the amount line of their envelope and place it in the collection plate as usual. If you do not currently use envelopes, please consider participating in either the envelope program or the new EFT program. St. John's needs your consistent support.
