St. John’s is committed to living our Baptismal Covenant to seek and serve Christ in all.
Reverse Advent Calendars: Celebrate Advent this year by creating a Reverse Advent Calendar. Each each day of Advent (December 1- 24), place a non-perishable food item in the box. On Sunday, December 29, bring your box to the Parish Hall during coffee hour. All food donated will benefit the Christ Ascension Food Pantry as part of our First Fruits ministry. Items most needed are canned tuna and chicken, dry or canned beans, low sodium veggies, hot and cold cereal, canned spaghetti sauce, and spaghetti noodles.
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—January 5
Important Note: Recently, the clientele at the food pantry has doubled; therefore, Christ Ascension greatly appreciates additional food donations.
