Community Outreach

Open arms and serving hands, transforming lives through Christ.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit  
(Matthew 28:18-19)

I love my church

There are many opportunities to serve our Lord.  We are anxious to see where God is leading our congregation. 
If you are looking for a church home, let St. John’s show you why we love our church!

GriefShare is a thirteen week, faith-based program for anyone dealing with the loss of a loved one.  A combination of socialization/support, video, workbook, and discussion, each two hour session is designed to help those who are mourning to process their grief with others who share the burden of loss.  There can be companionship on the journey through the wilderness of grief; no one has to grieve alone.

Sessions are held on Mondays from 6:30-8:30 in Grace Café
(See schedule below) 

2020 GriefShare Schedule:
  • January 6-April 20, 2020 (no class January 27 but class WILL MEET on Presiden'ts Day): 13 Week Session
  • May 4-August 3, 2020 (no class Memorial Day): 13 Week Session

You may register online at griefshare.org.  There is a $15 fee for the workbook payable at the first meeting of each 13 week session.  For further information, contact Pastor Janice, Ruth Portzline, or Chaplain Erin Maurer or go to griefshare.org

WORSHIP AT NESHAMINY MANOR 
St. John's was privileged to worship with residents of Neshaminy Manor.  As part of worship, our choir sang two anthems and led in some old familiar hymns.  We were also blessed to serve Holy Communion to the residents.  What a wonderful time of praise and worship!
