What Can You Expect?

A warm welcome! 

We try to lead worship in a way that is true to our inherited traditions while exploring new expressions of our faith.  Some of our members come to church in suits and dresses, others in jeans and t-shirts.  *Children are always welcome in church but for those parents who prefer, infant and toddler care is provided every Sunday beginning at 9:00am. *Visit our Youth Formation page to learn more if desired. 

Please fill out and return the "Welcome/Connect" card you'll find in our pews; share whatever and whenever you're comfortable.

Journey to Generosity

“Put simply, life is a God-given opportunity to become who we are, to affirm our own true spiritual nature, claim our truth, appropriate and integrate the reality of our being, but most of all, to say ‘Yes’ to the One who calls us the Beloved.” — Henri J.M. Nouwen

Our Fall Commitment Program 

Our fall commitment program invites everyone into the journey of saying “yes” to God who calls us the Beloved. 
From the moment we draw our first breath to the moment we breathe our last, we are both receivers and givers. How we move from takers of everything given to us to sharing everything we have is one measure of how we live into saying, “Yes.”
It is not simply about how much we give to support the mission and ministry of our parish. The journey is about how we live our lives as the Beloved.  Are we generous in our dealings with others? Are we generous when we welcome the stranger and the strange to church on Sunday mornings? Are we generous in our forgiveness and in our acceptance of forgiveness?

We hope you find the reflections we have planned through our fall commitment program helpful as we travel together on the Journey to Generosity.

Pledge Materials 

Pledge materials are set to be mailed Friday, September 29.  If you do not receive by mail and wish for your contact information to be included in the church records, please notify the parish office.  Extra pledge materials may be accessed from the church and via links below.  Please direct questions to office@sjec-midland.org or the parish office (989) 631-2260.

 

Ingathering Sunday

Our fall commitment program kicks off October 1 and culminates with Ingathering Sunday, November 5, 2017.  You are encouraged to return your pledge to the parish office through October - placing in Sunday collection plate or delivering it to our office.  All commitments received through Ingathering, November 5 will be blessed in that Sunday's worship.  St. John's asks that each of us devote intentional and reflective time to making pledge decisions.  We hope you continue to be enriched by reflecting and praying about journeying with a generous spirit.

Following Up: What To Expect 

Shortly after receipt, pledges will be confirmed with a mailed letter.  If we have not received your 2018 pledge by November 6, members of St. John’s vestry or stewardhsip team will follow up.  Please be open to receiving their inquiry and sharing honestly with them.

Ways to Give 
Stewardship Messages 

The act of making a pledge has a significance beyond the pledge amount - it is a visible sign of what we carry in our hearts and spirit.  While pledging meets a practical need of a church to budget and plan, the conscious decision to make a pledge is also important because it indicates that supporting the work church is a priority in our lives. 

Information about St. John's fall commitment program is typically mailed out to our congregation in early fall each year but feel welcome to contact St. John's at any time if you have questions about pledging or your giving history.
