Partner Ministries of St. John's
Jesus commissioned us to "go into all the world." Specifically, he sends us to:
"Jerusalem" – our parish or local community (ie. Johns & Wadmalaw Islands)
"Judea" – the region we are part of (ie. Charleston & the Lowcountry)
"Samaria" – neighboring regions and people with whom we would not ordinarily mix
"The ends of the Earth" – internationally
St. John's is committed to reaching out in all four of these ways. St. John's Parish in addition to our own missions and ministries hosts and partners with other local organizations to serve the community. These include:
[meets Tuesdays, 6.30pm, and Fridays, 7pm, in Walton Hall]
An international fellowship of men and women who have had a drinking problem.
The Barrier Islands’ Free Medical Clinic provides medical services to the medically underserved on Johns, James, and Wadmalaw Islands. Several members of St. John’s helped to found the BIFMC, which opened in the Spring of 2008. Their most consistent need is for volunteers! Please contact Sue Garcia by clicking HERE.
A program based at St. James Methodist Church Bohicket Road, Blessing Basket provides boxes of food to those whose food stamps don’t take them to the end of the month. The deliveries are made the third Saturday of each month. St. John’s sends a team of two or more to participate with members of St. James Methodist. If interested, please contact the church office.
