Serving at St. John

Hos’Pi-Ta’l-Ty, n.  Warm reception of guests

 The Bible is filled with examples of hospitality - the story of Mary and Martha being just one.  Hospitality is one of the things St. John is known for - and something we all share a part in providing. 

God designed you with passions, gifts and talents. When you serve in the area God designed for you, it is both rewarding and beneficial to you and to those you serve. Volunteering isn’t just about filling a slot, meeting a need, or getting a task done. It's about experiencing the joy of serving others! You have a unique contribution to make, and we are excited to partner together to make a difference in lives!
