Mission of the Month
Every month we take offerings for mission work outside of our congregation.
Our "Local Needs" focus for the month of January goes to support the East Side Soup Kitchen. They provide a nutritious lunchtime meal Monday through Friday, 11:00-2:20, to all who come to the door as well as an after-school meal to children at all recreation centers requesting service.
This month's collection focus for the Saginaw Metro Ministries Food Pantry at St. John’s Lutheran Church is "Canned Vegetables".
Please remember that the food pantries can’t use expired items so watch the sell by dates.
You can drop your offerings off in the sanctuary entrance and folks from the commission will take it to the pantry.
Taking Steps Against Hunger
On the 4th Sunday every September, St. Matthew's hosts a run/walk to raise funds for three area food pantries. 100% of the funds raised goes out into the community to help those who are hungry.
