We are pleased to announce that we have 25 churches working together to put on the 14th Annual Feeding of the Multitude on Saturday, Nov. 20 from 12 Noon to 3 PM on Walton Hall Grounds. We have lifted up the Feeding to the Holy Spirit and trust that He will once again, make it all come together. Our goal is that our guests will be fed spiritually as well as physically. We have many families struggling to make ends meet, and we want to help them and share the love of Jesus Christ. Please continue to pray for another wonderful event and a pretty day

Our goal is to feed 5000 people with 1200 bags of food and 900 turkeys plus 200 plated meals for the home-bound.

We will provide:

  1. Drive through pick-up of bags of groceries to feed a Thanksgiving meal to a family of 4 and a 10-12 lb. frozen turkey.   
  2. Homebound cooked meals provided for true home-bound people who have no transportation or ability to cook their own meals.
  3. Prayer Teams via Facebook live stream or private telephone call in line. We will also have our prayer chain.
  4. Feeding our Multitude of Pets.  We continue to offer free pet food and spaying/neutering education, thanks to our partners, Pet Helpers and Charleston Animal Society.

Prayers for the Feeding of the Multitude

Be sure to check in to the St. John’s Facebook page and send in any prayer requests.  We will have ministers and laypeople leading 30 minute prayer sessions from 12 Noon to 3 PM.  There is also a phone line for private call in prayer.  If you would like to volunteer to be a prayer warrior,  contact Meemee Williams 843-513-8886 or Ame Holcombe  864-505-8267

Please email any prayer requests to Ame or Meemee to be included on our prayer chain that we will drape around the cross during the Feeding.  This will contain prayers from all church members, representing our united belief and trust in Jesus Christ.  The prayers are transcribed into a document and prayed during the Feeding.
