Just Imagine

At The Lutheran Church of St. John, we are a place of Grace Overflowing.  Through the years, God has poured the abundance of His grace on us and we have responded with a heartfelt passion for sharing those gifts.  Over the years we have joyfully supported missions around the world, promoted Lutheran education and operated the second largest food pantry in Adams County.  We have erected a beautiful building and staffed our ministry in the hopes of sharing God’s good gifts with as many people as possible. 

From this deep desire to magnify God by sharing gifts, we are launching Hearts Overflowing, a campaign to position The Lutheran Church of St. John to continue bringing faith to life for many years to come.

Imagine what we could do if we eliminated our mortgage debt!  Hearts Overflowing is designed to provide us the freedom to dream of a deeper ministry and a wider mission.  With a goal of raising $700,000 over three years, we look to completely pay off our mortgage, while also establishing a fund to ensure that our building remains safe, beautiful and functional for years to come. Hearts Overflowing will also allow us to continue to magnify God’s gifts by focusing beyond ourselves, as God’s grace flows from us to others.   

Imagine what we could do if we could allocate the $68,762 we now pay in our annual mortgage to further our mission and ministry!  Imagine if we could,

•Call a director of worship
•Beautify our sanctuary through needed improvements
•Increase our support of Gospel  ministry around the world along with that of our own Central Illinois District
•Develop new opportunities to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with more people.

Hearts Overflowing Campaign Goals

$550,000 – Praise Goal:  Praise God that by reaching this goal we will be able to retire our mortgage at the end of the 3-year campaign.  As resources become freed up they will be invested in the worship life of our congregation, thereby multiplying our praise.

$700,000 – Rejoice Goal:  Rejoice in the gifts of God that by reaching this threshold we will not only be enabled to pay off our debt, but also to establish a reserve for major repairs and maintenance.  These monies will allow us to keep our building safe, beautiful and functional for years to come.

$850,000 – Exalt Goal:  Exalt in the overflowing abundance of God that allows for no debt, a maintenance reserve, and even upgrades to our facility.  These upgrades would focus on a beautification project for our sanctuary, further enhancing our worship.
