WAYS TO SUPPORT ST. JOHN’S:
There are many ways at St. John the Evangelist to give back to the church and community, whether financially, spiritually, or gifts of time and talents. All gifts contribute meaningfully to our lives of faith and service, and each performs a vital role in helping St. John’s to serve and support our growing parish. Please consider serving as a lay leader; organizing coffee hour; making meals for others; serving as a greeter on Sunday mornings; lending a hand at our Sunday receptions; helping to change light bulbs, or even flower bulbs! Your presence, and your contributions – big, small and in between – are always welcome at St. John’s.
