Outreach

St. John’s is committed to living our Baptismal Covenant to seek and serve Christ in all.

Laundry Love Clean clothes are essential to a sense of self worth, yet doing laundry at a laundromat is expensive. You can help by volunteering to help our neighbors do their laundry from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. the third Saturday of each month at Richmond Coin Laundry at the corner of Nine Mile Road and N. 25th Street. Please contact David Curtis with any questions. Next Laundry Love Day– Saturday, March 21. Please note the new time. 

Join the $5 Club: Pledge to spend $5 a month on non-perishable foods to feed others. Bring your donations on the first Sunday of each month, or deposit them in the basket at the rear of the church at any time.
 First Fruits Sundays: First Sunday of every month. Bring non-perishable food to church for donation to the Christ Ascension Food Pantry. They always need cereal, canned pasta, tuna, and peanut butter. Next First Fruits Sunday—March 1
Important Note:The Food Pantry is very low on canned fruit, boxed spaghetti, canned chicken, and saltines. 

Cookies for KAIROS We are baking cookies to support the Rev. Deacon Karla Hunt’s KAIROS prison ministry. Please join us. We’ll provide the dough, and if you want to bring dough yourself, please contact David Curtis. Since the cookies will be taken into prison, the cookies must meet certain restrictions. We do need cooling racks and baking sheets. Please bring yours if you have them. More information about this ministry can be found here.
