For as one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function,
so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them…
WHAT IS INREACH?
Inreach is the opportunity for the congregation to nurture its community. At St. John's, we offer a plethora of ministries in order to strengthen our faith and relationships! Below you will find descriptions of each ministry, as well as links and contact information.
St. John's hosts several family-friendly events over the course of the church year. Our most famous events include the Kick-Off Dinner (a feast of delicious fish and shrimp) to start the church year, and our parish-wide cookout in the spring (a delectable spread of homemade burgers and hot dogs). Other events in the past include themed Guest Chef Dinners on Wednesday nights, and themed Sundays (Hat Sunday, Seersucker Sunday, and Red, White and Blue Sunday, to celebrate Independence Day), in addition to our adult and youth ministries found on the Parish Life page. If you have questions or suggestions, please contact vestry members Walker Haigh or Jim MacRae.
In addition to supporting our church community, we support our Fayetteville community as well! You can volunteer with our Vacation Bible School, assist with coffee hour, really all you have to do is ask! We regularly serve lunches at the Salvation Army, offer breakfast with Operation Inasmuch, and provide repairs to homes and businesses annually with our Operation Inasmuch Blitz Day. To learn more about these activities, visit our Outreach page.
We welcome you to St. John's! We would love to embrace you and your family into our community. We greet anyone who comes to our church with joy in our hearts. Newcomers are encouraged to fill out pew cards to drop in the offering plate, and we offer them a welcoming gift bag as well. For more information, please visit our Welcoming page.
Pastoral Care offers parishioners a means to reach out to grieving, ill, or recovering members of the congregation. We offer opportunities to cook casseroles, knit prayer shawls, and a Eucharistic visit with a lay minister, in addition to many others. For more information, please visit our Pastoral Care page. If you have concerns or comments, contact Parish Administrative Assistant Trishia Medema.
