“God’s Work, Our Hands”
St.John’s participates in an ELCA “God’s Work. Our Hands” service project each year. The goal of each project is to help support our local community.
This year we are collecting back packs and schools supplies for refugees that will be distributed through Lutheran Social Services (LSS). Now until September 10th we are collecting back packs and school supplies.
Any and all of the items on the list below will make an impact in the life of a student this year.
- Loose Leaf Paper
- One Subject Notebook
- Composition Books
- Crayons and Colored Pencils
- Folders and Binders
- Back pack
On God’s Work, Our Hands Sunday (September 10th), we will celebrate with a blessing of the back packs and school supplies during worship.
In 2015, St. John’s filled nearly 200 bags of food to support our neighbors at the Millian United Methodist Food Bank. Again in 2016, St. John’s was able to fill nearly 300 bags of food to support the food bank.
