CROP Hunger Walk

CROP WALK was a success! Neither rain or cold kept Dorothy, Myrna and Adolph from participating in the Walk.  Bob and Barb cheated a bit, but took lots of groceries to the Hampshire/Burlington Food Pantry on their golf cart.   As always the members of St. John's were more than generous and donated $2,000.00.   As of last week total raised from participating churches was over $6,000.00.   Approximately $1,500.00 from St. John’s will be donated to the Hampshire/Burlington food pantry.  The remaining funds will be sent to Church World Services to help end hunger one step at a time.    

Bless all and thank you for your support and generosity.  -Barb Christ  

Food Pantry - Holiday Dinner Kits

Once again we have the opportunity to share the holidays with those less fortunate than ourselves and has been a church project since 2006.  M.O.R.E. is distributing Holiday Dinner Kits to their clients.  The kit includes a turkey, instant potatoes, vegetables and is also supplemented with other food items such as milk, desserts, etc.  The cost per kit is $16 each.  Consider donating one today.   


Thank you again.
