Why I Give

By Susanne D’Angelo

Years ago, I was always having financial problems no matter how hard I tried to save my money.  A very good friend told me, “if you will give to the Lord first, you will have more.”. It was hard to believe but I was willing to try.  Amazingly, after pledging to do so and giving to God first, I always had enough and most times extra.

Years later, after Michael and I were married, it was my turn to tell him this.  He was uncomfortable pledging a “fixed” amount but he has since become a believe er also.

St. John’s is my spiritual family and has done so much for meand made me feel so at home.  I want to give all I can, not only financially but also through the gifts God has given me.

Being a servant, whether through teaching Sunday School, making shawls for those in need, working at the community kitchen, singing in the choir, or giving financially, I have been so blessed at St. John’s.  That is why I choose to make a pledge during this stewardship campaign.
