  • The Feast of Lights is St. John's celebration of Epiphany

    Join us on Wednesday, January 6 at 6:30 pm for the arrival of the Magi in Bethlehem and the manifesting of the baby Jesus, the Messiah. These are the highlights of this wonderful pageant. Parents, please contact Feast of Lights Chair Tammi Richardson by December 30 if your children will or will not be able to participate. This year, we are asking our four-and-five-year-old children to serve as our lambs, or if you prefer, a shepherd and at least one parent to also be a shepherd. Current first and second graders are the heavenly host of angels who visit the shepherds with the Angel of the Lord. Third, fourth, and fifth graders are the visiting shepherds to the Holy Family.

    Please email your response to Tammi at
    Practices, for all age groups, are scheduled between 4 and 6 pm on Sunday, January 3.

  • Harvest Hope

    We ask the congregation to continue to show its support for Harvest Hope Food Bank.  Founded in 1981, the organization provides food to those in need across 20 different counties in the state of South Carolina.  Last year, the organization delivered about 28 million pounds of food and fed at least 38,000 people.  Harvest Hope accepts a large variety of canned goods and non-perishable foods, but they are especially in need of specific items.

    List of Items Most Needed

    Food items and plastic shopping bags can be brought to the basket containers at every Sunday service at St John's. You can find the containers in the entrance of the Barr Center on Wheat Street.  

    We also ask that you make monetary donations when you can to Harvest Hope. Let's all do what we can to feed a hungry soul today! 

    “And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life:
    he that cometh to me shall never hunger;
    and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.”  John 6:35
