More About Mission Possible
Each Lenten season, the St. John's Church family shares its wealth with those in need. Individuals research, nominate and vote on which charitable groups will receive the more than $10,000 we raise. One recipient is selected from each of three categories: a local charity (based in Monmouth County); a Diocesan charity (selected from a list provided by our Bishop); and a global charity (anywhere in the world). The funds are divided equally between the 3 groups and checks are sent. Usually these gifts come as a complete surprise to the recipients.
To learn more or to get involved, contact Mother Val at the church office at 732-741-7826 or firstname.lastname@example.org; or speak to Mother Val, Deacon Eve, or any member of the Vestry on Sunday during coffee hour.
