St. John is an active place to be, as servants of Christ, these are a few activities:
- Backpack Ministry
- We support the “Backpack” food ministry with a dedicated team that packs food for 15 students that attend The Minnick School, an alternative school operated by encircle (formerly known as Lutheran Family Services of Virginia.)
- We share responsibility with Redeemer Lutheran Church in Bristol and provide backpacks of food for students to take home every other week and on holidays.
- Members and friends of our congregation meet weekly to make quilts to donate to Lutheran World Relief and baby quilts to donate to Johnston Memorial Hospital.
- Come join us on during the school year, on Tuesdays from 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM.
- The fellowship is enjoyed by all and no sewing experience is required.
- Faith in Action Food Pantry
- Every 6 weeks volunteers participate by helping distribute food at Faith in Action located next to the church property.
