Outreach

Spotlight on Outreach
St. John’s is committed to living our Baptismal Covenant to seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbor as ourselves and respecting the dignity of every human being.

NEW Opportunities

Bellevue Elementary needs mentors, lunchroom buddies, and tutors. Scheduling is flexible and during the school-day. If interested, please contact Ms. Charla Armstead at carmstead@cisofrichmond.org. Requirements: background check and orientation meeting.

Kairos Prison Ministry needs your cookies.  Homemade cookies help express God’s love to a population that often feels deeply unloved.  Please see the handouts in the Parish Hall or at the back of the church for details.

Ongoing Opportunities

Join the $5 Club! Pledge to spend at least $5 a month on non-perishable foods to feed others. Bring your donations on the first Sunday of each month, or deposit your donations in the wicker basket at the rear of the church anytime. Thank you for your generosity in supporting First Fruits.
