Every month St. John’s puts out a request of its parishioners for an in-gathering of supplies. Each month its a different type of supply, intended for a different local charity. One month it will be paper for a local elementary school, another month it will be coats, another month Christmas items, etc.
An in-gathering is a great way to be supportive of various needs in town, and being a good steward of our community.
Lent 2018(February-March): United Thank Offering (UTO)-Our in-gathering for the season of Lent is the United Thank Offering (UTO). UTO encourages people to notice the good things that happen each day, give thanks to God for those blessings and make an offering for each blessing using a UTO Blue Box. UTO is entrusted to receive the offerings, and to distribute the 100% of what is collected to support innovative mission and ministry throughout The Episcopal Church and Provinces of the Anglican Communion. Our Mite boxes this year for children AND adults will go to support UTO.
