“Let us love, not in word or speech, but in truth and action.” — 1 John 3:18

Christian Outreach

We believe that the church does not just exist for us, but that God has called us to live out our faith in Jesus Christ by sharing his love in our community and around the world. Accordingly, St. John’s commits to spending 25% of our budget outside of the church each year. We receive solicitations from many worthy organizations and the committee carefully reviews such requests to determine which ministries we will support.

We are currently partnering with:
Baker Industries
Broad Street Ministry
The Clinic
Coordinated Homeless Outreach Center (CHOC)
Cornerstone Christian Academy
Crudem Foundation
Dawn’s Place
Great Valley Food Cupboard
Habitat for Humanity, Philadelphia
Hayes Manor
La Estacion
Mission Partners: Jed and Jenny Koball in Peru
Mission Partner: Claire Zuhosky in Niger
Partners in Health
Rise Against Hunger
Sandy Relief Teams / Karitas
The Village
Young Lives

Opportunities to Serve and Volunteer

There are numerous opportunities to serve and volunteer on a regular basis or simply for a few hours on a Saturday. These activities provide a means to further our outreach mission while participating in fun Christian Fellowship with others from St. John’s and the community. Some of the volunteer activities include:

  • Monthly trips to rebuild homes devastated by Hurricane Sandy
  • Habitat for Humanity Builder’s Competition – join a builder’s team or assist with planning
  • Watering, weeding, harvesting and delivering fresh vegetables grown in our community garden for the Great Valley Food Cupboard
  • Tutoring grade school children at the Cornerstone Christian Academy
  • Packaging 10,000 meals for Rise Against Hunger
