St. John’s participated in the Pottsboro Great Days of Service by building a wheelchair ramp for a local resident, painting her porch, and repairing her roof. Although the day was warm and the work strenuous, making a difference in the name of Christ is part of the mission of St. John’s, and everyone involved felt it was a very worthwhile endeavor!
Members of St. John’s also helped out with the Billy Vier Family Festival in Friendship Park. This annual event sponsored by the Pottsboro Ministerial Alliance provides free food, games, bounce houses, vision screening, and school supplies to local families. The weather cooperated and a great time was had by all!
Future plans for mission and outreach include participating in Family Promise of Grayson County as a support church and continuing our support of the Resale Barn through donations of food and adopting several needy families at Christmas time. We believe that we are called to be compassionate Christians!
