As gathering at the church has been paused, we still can continue to worship, reach out with phone calls, emails and even video chat. Fellowship remains and always will be an important part of the St. John community. We, at this time, of all times, are also called to pray.
While we miss worshipping at church, some of our expenses continue to be a constant. We want to continue to support our staff as best as we can, as well as ensure the necessary utilities are maintained to protect the integrity of the church.
To add to this challenging time, we are also missing out on rental revenue, as our partners in ministry and community outreach are under the same restrictions as we find ourselves. It is also a reality that some of us will be affected financially by the slowdown and changes in the economy, and this may be for some time to come. We are fortunate to have some reserves at hand, but these will quickly diminish without your support.
