The Outreach Committee is also looking into other organizations that we can help.  Olivet UMC has a free lunch program for the community and have a need for volunteers to help with these lunches.  Trinity/Coatesville has a free lunch the last Sunday of each month for Vets and we hope we can be involved with this program.  As we find out more about these two programs, we will inform you.

 

This year we are able to give monies to the following organizations:  Bridge of Hope, Lord’s Pantry – Downingtown, City Gates located in Coatesville, Parkesburg Point, Steeple to People, Seamen’s Church Institute, Octorara Area Food Cupboard and Good Work’s.

 

The Outreach Committee thanks you for your gifts to be able to achieve all of the above.

 

1.  BRIDGE OF HOPE 

     Bridge of Hope is a community program for homeless women with children.  St. John's supports this

     program through fundraising, and also by providing help (e.g. childcare) during special Bridge of Hope

     events.  

     chairperson: Sharon Fremont

 

2.  PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY 

     The Prayer Shawl Minsitry meets once a month, currently on the third Friday, from 9 AM to 11 AM in

     the Sunday School room at St. John's.  This group prays while knitting shawls, which are then given

     to those in need of comfort. 

     chairperson: Pat Owens

 

3. GENERAL OUTREACH

     This committee meets on an as-needed basis to handle St. John's participation in a

     variety of community outreach opportunities.  Some outreach needs are met on an ongoing

     basis (e.g. Steeple to People, Parkesburg Point), and at other times other outreach

     activities are explored.

     chairperson: Sharon Fremont

       make Jesus' ministry ofhealing a part of their vocation.  We believe healing is an essential

       nurturing which continues throughout our lives.  We believe that God's will for all is health

       of body, mind, and spirit.  We pray for healing expecting results.  Our members practice  

       daily Bible reading, devotions, and prayer.
