St. John has started a meal ministry! Your church family is there for you always, but especially in times of need. This team organizes meal trains as needed, such as after a death, when coping with a medical issue family crisis, or birth or addition of a child. We are always looking for volunteer cooks! You can volunteer as little or as much as you'd like! If this is a way you'd like to serve, please contact us at or 344-3025 for more information.
A team at Saint John grows vegetables on church grounds for Anchorage's Downtown Soup Kitchen. Contact the office to learn more.
