This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we live and socialize with one another.  It has been especially difficult for those in nursing homes, and for those who care for the residents in these places.  This Advent season, St. John focuses on caring for those at St. Luke’s Nursing Home and showing our support and love for them.

 - Showing Support for the Staff -

poinsettiaYour contributions to the POINSETTIA MEMORIAL FUND will purchase poinsettias to adorn the chancel area and to show appreciation to the staff at St. Luke’s who show up with love for their residents. During this time of distancing, it has been especially difficult for the residents and for their caregivers.

- Care Packages for the Residents -gifts

Send your video to Tina Hanson, Stewardship & Trust Fund Director by December 15th!

Our Time

 

St. John is strong in its Outreach program – we love to reach beyond our doors to others in the community. There are opportunities throughout the year to be a part of something “bigger”. All of these programs are open to everyone. It is a time for all of us to come together in Christ’s name and be a part of something bigger as we help others in the community of Dickinson and western ND.

GODS WORK. OUR HANDS

This is a big event at St. John, held in the fall. It is a day when we cancel our worship services to put our hands and feet to work in God’s name in our community!   This year, some participants met on the front lawn at 9:30 am for a blessing, then were sent out in the community to do a wide array of activities, while others participated on livestream and completed projects from home.

There were activities for ALL AGES, activities ONSITE, activites to complete AT HOME. Hear about them below:

 AMEN FOOD PANTRY

Donations for the AMEN Food Pantry are done regularly through several different groups throughout the year. Keeping the local food pantry stocked, and volunteering to assist at the pantry are ways to help in our own community.

DICKINSON BACKPACK PROGRAM

This wonderful program collects food for area children who depend on school lunches. Backpacks are filled for kids to supplement their meals over the weekends and throughout the summer months when school lunches are no longer available.

BADLANDS MINISTRIES BIBLE CAMP

Helping out at the area Bible camp is always a fun thing to do! Going to the Badlands outside of Medora reminds us of God’s beautiful creation and offers a sense of peace and tranquility. Each year, the Bible camp holds a day to get geared up for summer camp, and a clean-up day at the end of summer. Counseling and assisting at summer camp is also a fun option for anyone who enjoys the camp experience. Visit their website for other opportunities they have throughout the year with their retreats and committees!

ADVENT

During the season of Advent, new and different opportunities are available for us to reach out to others to show our love for our neighbor. Some of the projects have included hosting an Angel Tree, sending Operation Christmas Child boxes, and purchasing through the ELCA Good Gifts.  This year, we are doing projects for those at St. Luke's Nursing Home (see information above).
