Outreach takes time, dedication and money. We at St. John are so BLESSED to have a congregation of people who are so willing to give of their time, talents and treasures! Outreach is looking beyond ourselves and opening our eyes to the needs of others. As we come to the close of 2012, let us give praise and thanks to our loving Father and His Son Jesus Christ who led the ultimate outreach ministry in dying on the cross for ALL our sins and rose again from the dead to live with us forever!!
