OUTREACH MINISTRIES AT ST. JOHN’S UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
THE CARD OUTREACH MINISTRY – IS ON-GOING!
The Card Outreach Ministry of St. John’s United Methodist Church is carried on by Cathy Mendoza, Mark Aguilar and Melyssa Anderson. The Card Outreach Ministry, sends cards to various persons to let them know they are being thought about and kept in prayer.
The Card Outreach Ministry, also, provides a gift bag to people who are first time guests at St. John’s. The gift bags contain microwave popcorn, religious meditation materials, bookmarks and a pen from St. John’s United Methodist Church. The gift bags are a way of greeting guests and making them feel welcome.
FOOD PANTRY – FOOD BOXES ARE PROVIDED AS NEEDED
The Food Pantry of St. John’s United Methodist Church reaches out to those needing a little assistance with food. St. John’s gives out 6-8 food boxes per week, so the pantry shelves are always in need of replenishing.
Especially needed are Ramen Noodles, crackers, spaghetti sauce and noodles as well as canned food meats and vegetables, cookies, crackers, fruit juices and toilet paper. Cash donations are also appreciated so specific needed items can be purchased.
The Outreach Ministry opens each Friday from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm providing free items of clothing to dozens of persons each month. The Outreach Ministry works in conjunction with the Gospel Rescue Mission of Tucson in providing much needed clothing. The clothing items are hung on movable racks that are made available to the public in front of the Sunday School building. While the primary focus is to provide clothing, the staff helps in assisting the homeless, those with financial needs and provides resources for financial help, housing and medical assistance.
FELLOWSHIP OUTREACH – ALL ARE WELCOME!
Crackers, chips, cookies and sweet breads, to share, are always appreciated.
Each of the above ministries is staffed by volunteers so that any person desiring to become involved in the church’s ministry can find their ‘niche’ in one or more of these areas of outreach.
The staff is also prepared to witness to these persons about their need of a Savior, invite them to attend our regular services and offer to pray with them for needs that are presented.
