Supporting the Work of Your Church During These Times
With the present societal impact of the corona virus, you may be wondering how to maintain your offerings to our Lord. Especially in times of difficulty, the work of the Church goes on! We still have work to do, bills to pay and wages owed to our dedicated staff. The Mission work of the WELS goes on! Here are a few options to allow you to continue to support these labors in the Lord.
Mail your offerings
You may bring your offerings to the office between 9 and 3 Monday – Friday (except Good Friday), or mail your offering by check to the church office. Please include one offering envelope or a slip of paper stating your name, envelope number, and how you wish your offering divided (St. Paul’s Ministry Fund, Missions Fund, Benevolence Fund). You might consider mailing your offering once or twice a month to save on postage.
Electronically transfer your offerings
If you would like your offerings to be regularly, automatically withdrawn from your checking or savings account, please provide the information below. You may either mail the information below to the church office, or email the information directly to our Treasurer, Paul Louks (find email in directory, or call/email the office). If you are uncomfortable emailing this information, you can send an email asking to be contacted and set up over the phone. There is no fee for you to use this service. You may transfer funds on the 1st of the month only, the 15th of the month only, or both the 1st and 15th of each month. You may designate how to divide your offering between the St. Paul’s Ministry Fund, Missions Fund, and Benevolence Fund.

Thank you for considering how you can continue to support God’s ministry during these times. As Paul wrote to believers in the city of Philippi who supported his work: “[Your offerings] are a sweet smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God. And my God will supply all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:19-20)
