The idea of mission is a core principle of the Christian faith. At St. John’s we are committed to partnering with God to do his work of redemption in this world by assisting those in need through financial giving, hands on assistance, and donating needed items to the poor, the sick, the friendless, the prisoner, the homeless, and anyone in need. From working with local charities and non-profits to international mission trips, members of St. John’s make it a point to be involved.
Mercy House Volunteer Opportunity
On the Thursdays, St. John’s and Church of the Ascension have a partnership to support Mercy House, a Montgomery non-profit organization. Five days a week Mercy House provides over 200 meals to the less fortunate here in Montgomery. Through the food program and other ministries, Mercy House endeavors to create pathways of hope that have the potential to redirect lives and strengthen our community.
Our two churches provide four volunteers each Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Lunches have already been prepared prior to our arrival; we will fill Styrofoam take-out containers with food and bag those containers along with other items into grocery sacks. We then hand those sacks out to the clients along with an encouraging word.
A Sign-Up Genius has been set up to handle the scheduling of volunteers. Check your schedule and then click here to access the Sign-Up Genius.
This is another way for our churches to serve as God’s hands in our community. Friends from Ascension and St. John’s working together will be an additional blessing. Please contact Charlie Harris (549-1491) or Scott Bamman (202-6884) with any questions.
Local Mission & Outreach
At St. John’s Church we believe that God has called us to be witnesses of Christ’s love both here in our local community and abroad. We try to help those in need in our community both through gifts of our financial resources and personal involvement. Through our Outreach Grants program, which distributes over $100,000 annually, we offer grants both to faith-based and secular community agencies and programs that are helping the needy.
St. John’s Church has had a missionary presence in Honduras for over 10 years.
An in-gathering is a great way to be supportive of various needs in town, and being a good steward of our community.
St. John’s Episcopal Church members are blessed with an abundance of passion and care for God’s people. We are also blessed with resources to reach out beyond our doors to the world around us. The Grants Committee is committed to serving those underserved in the Montgomery area.
Music & Choir
Music at St. John’s embraces the rich musical tradition handed down from the Church of England and the Episcopal Church USA to interweave the highest forms of music from the past and the present into our worship.
