Spotlight on Outreach
St. John’s is committed to living our Baptismal Covenant to seek and serve Christ in all.
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—August 4
Laundry Love: This ministry takes place the third Saturday of every month from 11:45 a.m.-2:15 p.m. at Richmond Coin Laundry, at 25th & Nine Mile, and eliminates neighbors’ laundry expenses so they can direct their income to other necessities. We would love your help dispensing coins and laundry supplies, running the machines, entertaining children, and being a friendly presence. For more information, please contact David Curtis. Next Laundry Love Day—Saturday, July 20.
Laundry Love Activity Table: The Outreach Team needs donations for the kids’ activity table at Laundry Love. Possible donations include addition/subtraction flashcards, Play-doh, simple puzzles, picture books, coloring books, and simple craft supplies. A box for your donations is available in the Parish Hall. This is an ongoing effort, so there is no deadline. Contact Liz Broda.
RE:work Richmond Volunteer Opportunities Support Re:Work Richmond, the new East End employment initiative that St. Peter’s Episcopal Church launched this spring.
