Stewardship Letter


Read the stewardship letter mailed to members and friends of the congregation on November 20 that highlights what our resources are doing, the state of those resources, and an invitation for you to consider your ongoing part in our life together. 

Resources for Giving to Hosanna!


Writing a check isn’t the only way to support God’s work through Hosanna!  

Take a look at this pamphlet mailed with the stewardship letter for tips on how much to give, automatic giving, reducing tax liability through donations, planned gifts, other ways to support our ministry, and giving beyond Hosanna! 

Make Regular Automatic Contributions: 

Meet your goals without the hassle of checks by using direct bank withdrawal, debit card, or credit card to give weekly, biweekly, or monthly.

  • Use Hosanna’s electronic giving provider.  You can begin automatic e-giving yourself through our online giving portal or by calling the church office.  Changes to giving begun using a form can be made by calling the office or filling out a new form, or through the website if you signed up there.  There is a small fee for this service. 

  • Set up automatic giving through your bank.  Many banks allow you to set up automatic giving by EFT or by check for free through their bill pay.  Contact your bank about setting this up.  If additional information is needed from the church, call the church office. 


Give a portion of your paycheck. 

Some employers allow you to contribute to not-for-profit organizations like Hosanna! by deducting your gift from your paycheck on a pre-tax basis. 
Talk to your employer to see if this is an option.


Stock and Retirement Distributions: 

In addition to cash gifts, appreciated stock and distributions from an IRA or similar account can be given to the church in a way that reduces your tax liability.  Consult with a finance professional or your broker to learn how you might benefit from this and how to set it up. 


Planned Giving: 

Invest in the future of Hosanna! by paying down debt, funding capital improvements, or seeding new ministry through your estate plan.  Talk with your estate or financial planner to explore your options, or speak with Stephen Phelps, MA, CFRE of Lutheran Planned Giving.  Stephen doesn’t sell anything, but rather helps members learn how they can structure their estate to achieve their existing goals while leaving a legacy.  Stephen can be reached at 314-703-6949 or


Give to a project: 

If you’d like to invest in our ministry beyond the operating budget, talk with Pastor Mike or a council member about non-budgeted projects that might be on our horizon, dreams that have been tabled due to lack of funds, or maintenance needs that may be coming. 


Thrivent Choice: 

If you are a member of Thrivent Financial, you can direct Choice Dollars to Hosanna!  These funds must be designated each year, which can be done at or by contacting your Thrivent representative.  Over the years, has received over $10,040 Choice Dollars.
