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.'

    March Events

    • Noisy Offering - Sunday, March 4, 2018 at both services

      Clean out the car, the couch, and your purse! The kids will be coming around with pots and pans to collect your change for our Kids Against Hunger campaign (bills and checks will be allowed, too!). This is a fun way to get the kids and adults involved in serving those less fortunate. All can help with the offering on this day, and all can help pack the meals on March 10th (see below).

    • Kids Against Hunger! Saturday, March 10th, 9 am - 12 pm

      This will be St. John's 11th year of participating with this very worthwhile cause. Join us again as we pack 3200 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 8 other organizations that will be helping us this day. Please pass the word, as we'd love to have even more! We'll also be making sleeping mats for the homeless during this time. Please see Proverbs 3:24 Project below:

    • Proverbs 3:24 Project Day - Saturday, March 10th 9am -12pm

      All women of the community are invited to help make plarn out of plastic shopping bags, or crochet the plarn into sleeping mats for the homeless. No skills required! If you can cut with scissors, you can make plarn. If you crochet, please bring a P hook. Feel free to start collecting your shopping bags, but keep them at home until this event. We have nowhere to store them here at church. Make it a family service day - on this day we'll also be packing meals for the hungry (see above)!

    • Women's Ministry Luncheon - Saturday, March 24th 10-12
