Our church provides many opportunities to serve both within the church and in the world beyond our doors. We promote our spiritual growth within the congregation through such ministries as our music program, our Bible studies, our Sunday School program and our youth activities. Below is a list of some of the outside missions/organizations we currently support, both financially and with our time.

  • All Church Community
St. John’s was one of five founding churches of this ministry, along with Mt. Calvary in Fruitland, Friendship in Allen, Mt. Olive Christian Fellowship Church in Fruitland, and Trinity Faith Christian Center in Fruitland. This is an organization of believers banded together to share Love, Hope and Unity with the community. As part of this ministry, an All Church Community Choir has been formed with members from each of the church’s choirs. We sponsor an annual picnic which is open to the entire community featuring this choir, as well as other musical performances throughout the year. Other past activities include providing a Christmas Breakfast for residents of two local shelters, assisted the City of Fruitland in their Annual Easter Egg Hunt, and providing cookies to the Allen and Fruitland Police Departments.
  • Food Pantry at First Baptist Church of Fruitland
On the first Sunday of every month our church takes up a collection of perishable food items to donate to the food pantry and we also offer financial support to them. The generosity of the congregation can always be witnessed through this ministry.
  • God’s Kitchen at Grace United Methodist Church
Twice a year we provide cooks and kitchen help for God’s Kitchen at Grace United Methodist Church.
  • HALO
HALO is a Christ-centered faith based ministry that provides programs and services for the homeless and hurting men, women and children in our community.
  • Lion’s Club
The Lion’s Club meets at the church on the 2nd Thursdays of the month at 6:30 pm.
  • Salisbury Urban Ministries
Salisbury Urban Ministries’s mission is to develop and implement programs that serve and minister to the needs of the materially impoverished people of the community. We serve at God’s Kitchen twice a year.
  • UMCOR (United Ministry Committee on Relief)
UMCOR is a ministry of The United Methodist Church through the General Board of Global Ministries, and their goal is to assist the most vulnerable persons affected by crisis or chronic need without regard to their race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. They believe all people have God-given worth and dignity. We participate in UMCOR Sunday and accept donations when a special need arises.
