St. John’s is an active participant in the community and believes that it is our job as Christians to help members of our community wherever possible.
St. John's Thrift Shop
St. John’s Thrift Shop provides a low cost source of used clothing, toys, books, gifts and other miscellaneous items for the community. Periodically, we have Bag Days when you can fill a bag for $1.00.
Contributions of clothing, shoes, toys or other items in good condition may be taken to the Thrift Shop in the basement of the Parish Hall during working hours. The shop is open from 9 a.m. to 12 noon on Friday and Saturday.
Wakefield Food Pantry
St. John’s is an active participant in the Wakefield Food Pantry. There is a basket at the back of the church for Food Pantry donations. Members of the congregation deliver these donations to the Food Pantry weekly. Several congregation members participate in food pickup and delivery for the Food Pantry as part of their ministry.
Contributions of non-perishable food may be made to the Wakefield Food Pantry by placing all items in the basket at the back of the church and they will be taken to the Food Pantry. Envelopes are available in the entry vestibule or narthex of the church if you would like to send a monetary contribution to the Food Pantry. Please place monetary contributions in the offering plate or leave them in the church office.
EpiscoGolf is one of our most long-standing and much-enjoyed annual fundraising events, scheduled in August. All proceed benefit programs for children in our surrounding area. Contributions to the EpiscoGolf event are welcome. You can contribute by sponsoring a hole or playing in the tournament. You can contribute your time and talent by working on the EpiscoGolf committee. To contribute in any way, contact Peter Campbell (603) 335-6328 or (603) 522-3106.
