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.

This is a big event at St. John, held in the fall. It is a day when we cancel our 10:30 am service to put our hands and feet to work in God’s name in our community! We meet for a breakfast and blessing as we are sent out in the community to do a wide array of activities, such as picking up garbage, painting at schools and playgrounds, singing at nursing homes, flower arranging for homebound, making scarves for patients in the hospital, and baking items for our neighbors who so graciously allow parking in front of their homes every Sunday. It is a fun event that all ages can participate in together!

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.

DICKINSON CHURCHES UNITED FOR THE HOMELESS

Churches in Dickinson open their doors to the homeless during the winter when there is a shortage of space in other shelters. Volunteers are scheduled to “host” these guests throughout the night.

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!

COMMUNITY FALL KICK-OFF

Welcoming – that is an important word at St. John. Sponsoring and being active in this event welcomes new people to Dickinson before the school year begins.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

St. John is a regional site for this wonderful program that sends boxes of goodies to children all over the world. In 2016, over 1500 boxes were collected at St. John with over 13,500 being collected in Western ND! This is a very popular program that everyone can participate in and feel good about.

ANGEL TREE

St. John hosts an Angel Tree each year. Anyone can choose tags from the tree and purchase needed (or wanted) items for Christmas to families in need in the area.
