Community Outreach

Community Outreach Committee Forming

St. John’s Parishioners, you are invited to participate in the Church’s new Community Outreach Committee. The purpose of the Committee is to identify needs that are not being met within our community and to help out where we can and to work with organizations that are filling community needs and could use our support.  If you are interested in Community Outreach, contact Denise McCarthy, at dmccar9904@aol.com or 703-424-5472 to learn more. If you know of an organization that could use some support from us, please let Denise know as well. Looking forward to hearing from you.” 

Drive By Food Collection at St. John's for WFCM*

 On Saturday, September 12, we will have a drive by food collection for *Western Fairfax Christian Ministries from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM in the front parking lot of the church. Volunteers will be on hand to take your bag(s) of food from the front passenger seat or the trunk of your car for a no-contact drop off. All donations will then be taken to WFCM. As you know, we usually collect food every Sunday for WFCM. Since we are not having in-person worship services, we are not donating as much as we usually do. The need for food is great, especially for those who have become unemployed due to the coronavirus. Please help those who are less fortunate by donating food to WFCM on September 12. If you cannot make it on that day, you can put non-perishable food in the bin by the breezeway door, near the mailbox”.

Western Fairfax Christian Ministries

Throughout each year, St. John's parishioners collect hundreds of pounds food through the Sunday morning food collection, which are given to WFCM to stock their food pantry.
