Serving Together 2nd Semester Mission Project

Our Spring Semester mission project will be our St. John’s Teen Mission Trip.  We will raise funds to help support our St. John’s teens this summer.  For the past few years, a group of over 40 teens have headed down to North Carolina to run a vacation bible school at Illumine Church.  We have also sent a group to Georgia and Canada to help support in mission work at a local church and a soccer camp. We would love to support our St. John’s teens in the mission work that they will be doing.

We need your help!  We will be doing a PENNY WAR to help raise money for this great program!  This penny war will start after our spring break.  Look for more information to come soon!
