Although worship in the church building has been cancelled, we have been able to participate, safely, in some Mission Projects.
As the Small Church With the Big Heart that Does Great Things,
our response to the movement of the Spirit in
our midst has made a difference in the Community.
Each month, we designate a Sunday to our 'Mission Project' Sunday.

In January 2021, we are collecting soup for our Annual Souper Bowl.
Soup will be delivered to Immanuel UCC's food pantry.
Look for more information to follow.
In January 2021, we participated in the Linus Project.
St. John's had twenty-one volunteeers who tied 59 blankets
at their homes! Project Linus provides love, a sense of security,
warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized,
or otherwise in need through the gifts of new handmade blankets
and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer "blanketeers".
St. John's decided to have a Diaper Drive for our neighboring
church, Immanuel UCC's Food Pantry.
We collected 3,371 diapers and 2 packages of diaper wipes.
Thinking about our veterans, troops and first responders,
St. John's initiated Operation Gratitude again!
We collected "wish items" such as gum, lip balm, and playing cards.
Members created twenty-four beautiful scarves for our troops
and thirty-nine special paracord bracelets!
Along with all of that, we wrote thank you cards and notes for our men
and women in the military plus veterans and first responders.
A beautiful way to help and honor our troops.
In December 2020, we collected items needed for families in need as
suggested by the Sheboygan County Child and Family Services/Health
and Human Services Department.
