Buy Me a Cup of Coffee

Good Day, Friends of DSCS.

Another friend of the Dollar Store Children Sermon page brought this to my attention, and I like it.

If you would like to support me and the DSCS, you can simple by me a cup of coffee (or two), over at this site: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/DSKidSermons

You, of course, can still use Venmo (@revjohn29), but this seems to be a simple and direct way to offer support in a fun and, to me, meaningful way.

Thank you!

John

Greetings Saints!

I am so thankful for all of your love over the last 9ish years of the DSCS. I have so much fun running the DSCS and love the fact that I am hearing from more and more of you.

One of my greatest joys is when I will have folks visit Zion Lutheran because of this site, or when you reach out and we have conversations online. It is Grace upon Grace for me!

It has been especially important these last two-three years, as I have felt very connected to you all during the pandemic.

Would you consider making a donation to the DSCS?

You can do so through venmo: @revjohn29 or paypal:

Thank you!
