Giving to St. John's Lafayette

The 2015 Annual Giving Campaign: Walking the Way

The life of faith is a journey we make together, not a solo expedition.  The annual giving campaign is a time set aside to reflect on how this community has nurtured you and your family in the walk of faith.  It is a time to reflect on how the practice of intentional giving deepens your walk with Christ.  We are a pilgrim people, meaning together we strive and support one another in taking on the mind of Christ.  Learn more about the 2015 Annual Giving Campaign by clicking HERE or make your pledge online.

Donate directly to a St. John’s ministry using PayPal
