Ministries

 

Mission

 

St. John’s UCC is a mission-minded congregation. Our church supports outreach programs within our congregation, in our community, and throughout the world.

 

Food for Friends plans, cooks, and serves dinner for 45 people several times a year. This opportunity gives guests a nutritious home cooked meal along with time to socialize with one another.   

The 4th Thursday of the month, St John’s volunteers to the Quakertown Food pantry, which supplies a 3 day emergency supply of food  to those in need.

 

     Annual mission projects include:

  • • Heifer International
  • • Quakertown Christmas Carnival
  • • Christmas Caroling at Phoebe Richland
  • • Christmas Dinners for Quakertown Food Pantry
  • • Willing Wheelers
  • • Crop Walk
  • • Neighbors in Need (UCC offering for U.S. projects)
  • • One Great Hour of Sharing (UCC offering for international projects)

SUNDAY SCHOOL

Please plan to attend our Sunday School on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am.

All ages are welcome.  We hope to see you in the Social Hall next Sunday!


 

PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY

Do you know someone who would be warmed in body, mind and spirit by receiving a prayer shawl? If so, please contact either Barbara Fehnel or Mary Gillen. They have prayer shawls available. Not only are the shawls a wonderful blessing to those who receive them, but they are wonderful blessings to those who make them! We look forward to welcoming anyone else who would like to be a part of this ministry. Patterns for making prayer shawls can be found in the plastic holder below the bulletin board in the Narthex. Please see Barbara or Mary with any questions.
