The St. John’s Vestry recently voted to join Family Promise of the Midlands, a network to help homeless and low-income families achieve sustainable independence. As one of the 13 churches in the non-profit Interfaith Hospitality Network, St. John’s will open its church several times a year to provide housing and meals to families in transition. If you would like to volunteer in this new program at the church, contact the parish office at 799-4767.
