Christmas Outreach Boxes
The parishioners of St. John’s have made the Christmas season a bit brighter by preparing over 100 boxes filled with household necessities and a few holiday surprises for each of the residents of Rosien Towers. In doing so we have made good friends and created a tradition that all of us – both residents and parishioners – look forward to.

St. John’s provides a bag lunch to those in our community most in need Mon-Thurs from 10:00am-12:00pm.
In 2015, we served nearly 7,000 lunches and that number is projected to grow in 2016. This program would not be possible without the continued prayerful support, commitment, and generosity of our parishioners. Are you interested in supporting this outreach program? You can volunteer to make and serve lunches, shop for supplies, or donate! Contact Amy Simons for details
The Rummage Sale Fundraiser, which supports this program will be October 7th and 8th, 2016.
Old Town Christian Outreach – Volunteer Day!
The fourth Saturday of each month, St. John’s sends a group of volunteers to assist in the soup kitchen at the Old Town Christian Outreach Center. We meet at St. John’s at 9:15am, then report to the Outreach Center and work until around 1:00pm This is a huge help to the outreach center and we represent ourselves well in the community around us. There is no ongoing commitment; simply come when you can. Consider making it a family outing for those of us with older children!
