Volunteer for Blessing Baskets

This week help out with preparing food bags and handing them out. There are 3500 people below the poverty line on Johns Island. St. John's, along with other island churches, businesses, local farmers generously donate their time, money, fresh & canned food & meat in order to feed over 250 low income, needy families throughout the islands. This weekend we plan on feeding 660 people. If you would like to help, please contact Walt Miller.

Emergency Response Team Training July 10

Still time to register for online access to the Emergency Response Team Training for your Church.

After a disaster when our neighbors are hurting, we should be ready to be a community center. This is an opportunity for our Church to shine Christ's love, share the gospel and be a good neighbor.

We need everyone to help us no matter your skill level to hand out water and ice, provide first aid or help clean up. We are looking for those who are trained doctors, nurses, emergency responders, cooks, chainsaw operators as well as untrained individuals.

Join us in Walton Hall or online Saturday July 10, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. for disaster preparedness training to prepare for a disaster and learn how as a parish we can provide help, provided by St. John's Emergency Response Team and Servant's Heart Disaster Relief.

The program will be live streamed on Zoom. You can sign up for the Zoom meeting on the St. John's Website. We will provide you with a link and password to access the live Zoom meeting when you sign up. You will also be able to access the Zoom meeting through the St. John's Mobile App.

For those attending in person we ask that if you have not been vaccinated or are partially vaccinated to wear a mask for the protection of the community and if you are unwell to stay at home.

At St. John's


July 11
Let your merciful ears, O Lord, be open to the prayers of your humble servants; and, that we may receive what we ask, teach us by your Holy Spirit to ask only those things that are pleasing to you; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who with you and the same Spirit lives and reigns for ever and ever. Amen

For Persecuted Churches

We pray for persecuted churches around the world. For the month of June we pray for the nation of Peru. Heavenly Father, Christians and Christian churches in Peru are suffering due to Covid-19, economic collapse, political corruption, and poverty. We pray for our brothers and sisters to endure, persevere, and thrive through the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. Lord, in your mercy. Hear our prayer.
