Please save your receipts from Redner’s. Our Youth Ministry program collects the tapes to help finance their mission trips and participation in the ELCA Youth Gathering. Place the tapes in the appropriate basket in the Narthex (Lobby) or mail them to the church office. The portion of the tape is highlighted to the right. If this is cut off your receipt, it does not qualify for the program.
During the academic year, the St. John’s Social Ministry Committee hosts a fair trade market each month in Kley Hall during the Sunday morning coffee hour. Coffee, tea, chocolate and olive oil are sold through the Lutheran World Relief Fair Trade program. Profits from the sale are given to Lutheran World Relief to help expand our ministry throughout the world.
You can also purchase WAWA Shortie hoagie certificates for $4.00 with proceeds going to the Youth Mission Trips. These are available from our Youth Ministry leaders after church on Sundays.
