Happening at St. John's
Food Pantry Volunteers: January offers a fifth Saturday, and thus the opportunity for St. John's to head the volunteer team at the ICM Food Pantry at Druid Hills United Methodist Church. This is a great chance to have contact with our neighbors who live and stay along the Ponce Corridor. Volunteers are asked to arrive around 10 a.m. and finish between 12:30 and 1 p.m.
Intown Collaborative Ministries also has announced an important initiative they are undertaking this month: a sort of census of the population they serve, which will allow them to better access public funding available for the pantry. This will involve interviewing each guest who comes to the pantry this month in order to gather necessary information and to better assess their needs.
As it will involve a lengthier morning than usual for the guests, ICM would like to offer breakfast to make the experience more enjoyable. So in addition to supplying volunteers on our fifth Saturday, 1/31, we will also be offering light breakfast items for those who visit that day (such as bagels, muffins, pastries, fruit, juice, and coffee). If you are able to help out in supplying anything for this effort (even if you won't be volunteering that morning), it would be greatly appreciated. Please contact the Outreach Chair for more information.
This Sunday, January 25th, the young adults are going to pack sandwiches for Mercy Church and then head to Summitt's Wayside Tavern for lunch. After a meal together, we'll travel to Auggie's Game Store for an afternoon of games. If you're interested in attending part or all of the afternoon's events, please contact the church office or plan to join us after church.
