We serve each other, our community and the world.
We serve with joy, fully recognizing that in serving another
we most closely mirror the actions of our Lord.
Huntington Reading Camp
The Episcopal Churches in Huntington are working to help children in grades 2-4 become better readers by hosting a week long reading camp just for at risk readers -- kids who don't love reading or don't think they're good at reading are invited to come each summer for a fun week of reading strategies and recreation from 8:30 to 12:30. Apply to volunteer here. Enroll your child here. Need more info? Download our flyer here.

Located at Trinity Episcopal Church, the Cridlin Food and Clothing Pantry is an important outreach ministry for St. John's. We support the pantry through donations of food (place donations in the basket in the lobby), and monetary conttribututions. Visit their website here.
We are involved in our community.
St. John's members are actively involved, often in leadership positions, in organizations reaching out to those in need such as: Faith in Action of the River Cities, Dress for Success, Hospice, The United Way, Highland Education Project, Ronald McDonald House, hospital auxiliary services, and Habitat for Humanity.
Prayer Quilt Ministry
We maintain a prayer quilt
ministry for anyone in need of prayer whether for illness or any one of life’s
difficulties. Quilts are made by volunteers and placed in the side chapel on Sunday mornings. Following communion parishioners stop and tie a knot in the quilt while saying a prayer for the person for whom it is designated. When
every knot is tied the quilt is then given to the person for whom the prayers
were said. Prayer Quilt request forms are in the narthex.
Meals in Love for Claire (Milc)
This ministry finds it's purpose in feeding our brothers and sisters in our church family when important life milestones are occuring; the birth or adoption of a child, illness, injury, death, divorce, any need that might be served by a warm meal and a caring heart. This ministry was founded to honor Claire Lieving, parish member, wife, mother, friend.
Our welcome ministers greet our members and guests at our 10:30 service, handing out bulletins, welcoming newcomers and taking a count of those present. We always need more help -- if you can smile, you are ready! Find out more here.
We have an active adult and childrens education program and welcome volunteers to assist us all year long. If you have an area of interest or expertise and would like to share that through an adult forum or workshop, talk with the rector.
