St. John on the Mountain’s Outreach

All of us are called, in the waters of baptism, "to seek and serve Christ in all persons." All of us, the Clergy, the Vestry, the Outreach Commission, the Youth Group, the Sunday School, the Prayer Shawl Circle, our pledging families and dozens of (often unsung) individuals have been invited to seek and serve Christ. We discover that in our life of giving ourselves away, we find ourselves. In seeking Christ, we are found by him. Our relentless pursuit of the Lord Jesus brings us into many places, and brings many people near us who reveal God to us. From our sweaty efforts with Habitat for Humanity to filling Heifer Arks with coins; from the faithful and tranquil knitting of prayer shawls, soup and pies to helping to build a house; from monthly journeys to Plainfield to serve food at Grace’s Kitchen to traveling to witness with our fellow Anglicans in Ecuador: in all of it we find Jesus. Come share in our common life of service on the Mountain, and join us as head down the Mountain, seeking the God who continually seeks us, and serving the Lord who will stop at nothing to serve us.
