2020 Pledge in Action

Thank you for your generosity and thus help us accomplish much in this upcoming New Year for Christ and His Holy Orthodox Church!

I hope you will take a moment to consider a simple and reliable means of fulfilling this financial pledge. It’s easy to forget cash-back at the super market or writing a check on a Sunday morning when you are rushed to get out the door–but methods exist to help with this and keep us faithful to our commitments.

“The firstfruits of your ground you shall bring to the house of the Lord your God.” Exodus 34:26.

Many banks have enabled members to set up automatic “bill pay” to send a check directly to a institution easily and worry-free. I recommend using this tool as a means of giving to God your firstfruits by setting it to send that 10% immediately after payday. In this way we may come closer to relying on him so that “the blessing of the Lord brings wealth, without painful toil.” (Proverbs 10:22)

When setting up your automatic pledge, simply add St John Orthodox Church as the Payee and use your Family Name as the Account Number, as shown in the illustration.
