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.
Pies for Community Thanksgiving Dinner St. John’s is continuing our annual tradition of contributing pies to the Community Thanksgiving Celebration at Chimborazo Elementary School, which is scheduled for November 19 at 6:00 p.m. Please bake or buy a pie to share, and bring it to the Parish Hall next Sunday, November 18. We also encourage you to volunteer to help carve turkey and serve dinner the evening of the dinner, beginning at 4:30 p.m., November 19.
Bellevue Elementary needs mentors, lunchroom buddies, and tutors. Scheduling is flexible and during the school-day. If interested, please contact Ms. Charla Armstead at email@example.com. Requirements: background check and orientation meeting.
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.
