St. John Lutheran Church is committed to our community and world. Here’s how you can get involved:
The Committee seeks ways in which our congregation can help with the social welfare and humanitarian concerns of people on a local, national and global level. Programs include the ELCA World Hunger Appeal, the annual F-M Church World Service CROP Walk and Habitat for Humanity.
Meal Preparation & Service (Churches United & Salvation Army)
Once a month, volunteers prepare and serve meals at both Churches United for the Homeless and the Salvation Army.
New American Resettlement Committee
Members of the Committee meet to consider and plan how to best address the needs of our New American friends. Through Lutheran Social Services, we meet specific needs, provide transportation, advocate for a New American, help them understand our culture and how our government agencies work.
Volunteers are recruited to gather and pack grocery orders at the Food Pantry which are distributed to people in a crisis situation. A total of about 30 volunteers are needed.
New Member Ministry
New members experience a richer, more spiritually fulfilling community at St. John when the new individual or family has a New Member Sponsor.
