Online Giving

We are pleased to announce that we will be using a new system for our automatic tithing withdrawals. It is called Online Giving, and it will give you complete control over managing your automatic tithing to St. John.

If you are currently giving via automatic withdrawals from your checking account or credit card, switching to Online Giving is a two-step process. Step one is to set up an account with Online Giving, which can be done by clicking on the icon below:

Step two is to email Cris Denning at or call Cris at (785) 843-0109 and request that your tithing account be transferred to Online Giving. Once this transfer is complete in our system you will receive an email from St. John the Evangelist with instructions on how to complete your account set-up.

If you do not currently have automatic withdrawals for your tithing, then please consider enrolling in this new Online Giving program. It is convenient and safe! Just click on the Online Giving icon above.

When you participate your gift will be securely transferred directly into the parish bank account. And you won’t have to remember to write a check or stop by the ATM on Sundays!

If you have any questions please contact Cris Denning by phone at (785) 843-0109 or by email at
