Serving the Community

How can one say you love and serve God, yet keep quiet of all the wonderful things God has done for each of us. We do an injustice to God when we only praise and speak of God’s goodness to our fellow worshippers and not to the community at large. God is our Savior for all the world, all of our community.

It is our duty to share the Good News with our community and be witness to God’s Love and His amazing Grace and Mercy! The church is not represented by just the physical building where we worship each Sunday, but how we witness and do for our community. 


Current Ministries defined at St. John to support this aspect of the vision are as follows:

Benevolence -- Bereavement -- Exercise

Health & Wellness -- Library -- Seniors

Women’s Missionary Society -- Tutorial


Micah 6:8 He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
