Giving: Our Hope Foundation
St. John is launching a program of planned giving called “Our Hope Foundation” to provide an opportunity for St. John parishioners to support the long-term ministry and mission of our church. This program includes a number of ways for our parishioners to benefit their church in the distribution of their assets regardless of age or stage toward retirement. Many people who are approaching retirement may benefit from a strategy that provides a lifetime retirement income, tax deduction, and a gift to the church and/or school. For more information, please visit the Our Hope Foundation webpage.
Do you want to learn how to cook our tasty German food? Would you like to join the planning and preparation for the event? Do you want to help out during Oktoberfest? We are always looking for new friends to join the committee or cooking crew or just volunteer at the event. Call Angie Evers at (785) 550-0411 to find out how you can get involved or visit http://signup.com/go/VQrKLno to sign up online. SIGNUP TABLES ARE AVAILABLE AFTER ALL MASSES. Please stop by.
