SPECIALEVENTS


There is always something good going on here at St. John's! We strive to offer plenty of opportunities for fellowship, outreach, and service as ways of Pointing to Jesus. Plan to attend, get involved, and bring a friend or two!

Matthew 25:37-40:

37"Then the righteous will answer him, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?' 40"The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'

All ladies from the community are invited. You may bring grocery bags with you that day, but please do not drop them off at the church beforehand. If you crochet, please bring a P or Q hook. Otherwise, just bring a pair of scissors. Breakfast will be provided. Ladies, come and join this purposeful time of working together to serve those less fortunate! RSVP by click here.

      This will be St. John's 11th year of participating with this very worthwhile cause. Join us again as we pack 3150 meals to be distributed to hungry people all over the world. Each meal costs just 30 cents, but that's a total of over $9,000 for that many meals. Collection jars are around the church. Consider taking up a collection at work, or school, or in a group to which you belong. We currently have 10 other organizations that will be helping us this day. Please pass the word, as we'd love to have even more!
