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.
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. Remember that while we might take a vacation this summer, hunger does not. Thank you for your generosity in supporting First Fruits. Your living out the Gospel allows others to go to bed without being hungry.
First Fruits Sundays: First Sunday of every month. Bring non-perishable food items to church for donation to the Christ Ascension Food Pantry. The food bank especially needs soup, pasta, and canned fruit. In May we collected 181 pounds of food, bringing our year-to-date collection to 623 pounds, meeting 41.5% of our goal 41.7% of the way into the year. Well done! Next First Fruits Sunday—July 1, 2018
Laundry Love—Third Saturday of every month. Help do your neighbors’ laundry at the laundromat at 25th & Nine Mile. This month we helped 51 people with 97 loads of laundry and 99 dryer loads. Excellent! Next Laundry Love Day–June 16.
