Service & Outreach

At St. John’s, our hands-on service projects are local.

Feeding the Hungry

We continuously collect food for the Millian Food Bank, feeding our neighbors in Aspen Hill.

Cooking Meals

Throughout the year St. John’s provides meals to the Interfaith Works Women’s Center (formerly Wilkins Avenue Women’s Assessment Center) and the students in Lutheran Campus Ministry at the University of Maryland.

Supporting Our Senior Community

St. John’s is active in supporting the residents of the Village at Rockville (formerly the National Lutheran Home).

God's Work. Our Hands.

We participate annually in our “God’s work. Our hands” service project. Together with our friends and neighbors, St. John’s works on a project to help our community, supporting our neighbors in need. In the past, we’ve collected food for the Millian Food Bank. Our 2017 project focused on collecting school supplies for Lutheran Social Services (LSS).
