Jesus took generosity so seriously, that he made it his way of life.  Jesus did not apologize for being generous and humble.  He came as a humble servant, and in his life, we have the ultimate in giving.  For Jesus there was no holding back, no reserve, and no condition.  His generosity for us was without condition.  We have the opportunity to return that love by financially supporting our ministries of St. John.

Options for Giving to St. John


St. John offers a simple and secure way for you to give to the church electronically through Vanco. Simply click the green GIVE button in the upper right-half corner of your screen. There, you can create a personal account with one password that you can use to give online from your computer or mobile device. You can also store multiple payment methods (credit card or electronic transfer) or contact the church office for assistance. 

Once you have set up your account, you can:

  • Set up a weekly, semi-monthly, or monthly electronic funds transfer (EFT). One easy step each year guarantees that St John will receive your gifts on a regular basis, even if you are out of town or forget one week.
  • Or you can set up a one-time gift to support St John’s ministries, that you can do as frequently as you would like to.

Cash or Check

Please make sure you identify yourself on the envelope or your check so St. John can provide you a record for tax purposes. Your gifts can be placed in the weekly worship offering plate or they may be mailed to:  St John Lutheran Church, 715 College Street, Cedar Falls, IA 50613.
