‘for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’   Matthew 25:35-36 (NRSV)

The St. John’s Outreach Commission has numerous initiatives, both new and ongoing, which have always depended on the participation of many in the St. John’s community for their success. There are many opportunities to answer Christ's call to serve those in need beyond St. John's: our work extends from Howard County to Kenya, and includes a broad range of efforts, including food, property, education, and health care assistance. Won’t you join us?

The Outreach Commission meets the first Monday of the month at 5:30 p.m., currently via Zoom. To join the commission, offer an outreach idea, or inquire about an initiative, email Outreach@stjohnsec.orgPlease note in the subject line the initiative in which you are interested (e.g., ReBuilding Together; Zoom log-in)
