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

The Barrier Islands Free Medical Clinic has expanded their network to include Johns, James, Wadmalaw and now Folley Beach. BIFMC is also partnering with the national MAVEN Project to expand their network of volunteer specialists.

St. John's, along with other island churches, businesses, local farmers generously donate their time, money, fresh & canned food & meat in order to feed over 250 low income, needy families throughout the islands.

Volunteers meet every third Thursday of the month to prepare the "baskets" and the third Saturday for distribution. If you would like to help, please contact Walt Miller in the Church office or email wmiller@stjohnsparish.net.

Saturday, November 19, Noon–3pm

On Saturday, November 19, St. John’s will host the 9th annual ‘Feeding Of The Multitude’ Thanksgiving feast!

In collaboration with 29 Island churches, we will prepare nearly two thousand meals to be enjoyed by guests on site or delivered to Fire Department and EMS staff, to nursing home staff, and to the home-bound. It is a wonderful party with entertainment and fellowship with our neighbors, and all are welcome!

Prayer Shawl Ministry 762x1500.jpg

St. John's Prayer Shawl Ministry, which began in the fall of 2013, is composed of a diverse group of creative women - novice to accomplished - with a passion for prayer and a deep concern for the welfare of others.

Shawls are lovingly knitted or crocheted and given as tangible evidence of God's love and His desire for the comfort of each recipient. Recipients may be parish members or relatives or friends of parish members, or simply those made known to anyone at St. John's. Recipients may be struggling with a serious illness, facing a difficult surgery and recovery, homebound, transitioning to hospice care or other similar situation.

Members meet the first Saturday of each month at 10:45am in the Parish Life Building for a dedicated time of stitching, praying and exchanging ideas.

For more information, to join or to make a referral, please contact either Polly Sosnowski (polly.sosnowski@gmail.com) or Susan Neville (sneville1027@yahoo.com).

Haut Gap Angels

The mission of the HAUT GAP ANGEL PROGRAM is to provide encouragement and support to the students and faculty of Haut Gap Middle School through service and resources in a loving, Christian manner.

Among the Spiritual Gifts needed: bakers, artists, note writers, athletes, teachers, listeners, shoppers, party planners, fundraisers and cheerleaders. No level of involvement is too large or small!

Past projects include practical math skills projects teaching kids to build and use tools, a teacher appreciation breakfast and a pizza party for each grade level. We also provide assistance to the community by stocking a school supply closet and aiding the school nurse with special hygiene and health needs of the student body. We continue to encourage all parishioners to buy a pack of pencils or paper when they are out shopping and drop in the purple bins at church. 

lay pastoral care square.jpg

Our connection in the Body of Christ calls us to support one another in times of celebration and crisis. That support often comes from family and friends, or from other groups such as a Bible study. Lay Pastoral Care is a ministry that strives to make sure that everyone in our church family is cared for along life’s journey. We visit members at the hospital and in homes, prepare meals for members of the congregation who need them, and we provide transportation for medical appointments. We also host funeral receptions in the Parish Life Building, if that is the family’s wish. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve the members of St. John’s! If you are available to prepare a meal, provide transportation, are interested in being a member of either the visitation or reception teams, or if you know of a need that we can support, please contact Walt Miller.

technology square.jpg

The Technology Committee's primary focus is to best utilize the Church's technological resources to further the mission of St. John’s Parish. This includes using the technology to broadcast services in the Church to other buildings on the campus, as well as to record the services for parishioners who are unable to attend St John’s. In the Parish Life Building, technology is an important tool for all education ministries provided. From children’s songs to adult DVDs,  the available resources are widely used. Members of the committee need not be “techies”. They just need to be interested in using these important tools to further our mission at St. John’s. For more information, please contact the church office.
