Fellowship and Service Opportunities

Here at St. John's, we encourage our congregation to help enrich the lives of others through community outreach. Learn how you can help other individuals in the community through our fellowship opportunities in Northeastern Pennsylvania.


 It was that magical time of year, Vacation Bible School! What an exciting week it was. Over 20 students paticpated along with a number of adult and youth volunteers! The week was filled with fun, faith, learning, music, singing, dancing, games, crafts, snacks, and friends! This year’s theme was Discovery on Adventure Island.  Stduents joined us as we become explorers in  a quest for God’s great light, discovering how God’s light shines on us and how we can reflect that light as we live each day.  

Children from the age of three up to the fifth grade participated in VBS. And older youth joined in the excitement as junior volunteers. 

It was a wonderful week for all!
