Local Outreach

Jesus said, “You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” (Acts 1.8b) We consider his instruction to be a lasting ordinance for his church to follow. To this end, we are active in our local community, our country, and throughout the world.
 
St. John’s is extremely active in the local community. We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins, saved us from certain death, and has given us new and eternal life in him. In gratitude, we seek to share and show Christ in our love for our neighbors. Our local outreach is primarily done in partnership with existing organizations. As a founding partner in the establishment of Metro Ministries, our congregation continues to support efforts at mitigating the devastating effects of poverty while striking at its root causes.
