Food Pantry Collection
As you shop for groceries, please pick up some extra non-perishable items to help feed the hungry of Woodstock. Our focus item during the month of January is canned meats and ready to eat meals (beef stew, chili, tuna, chicken, Spam, Vienna sausages, etc.)

Please place items in the collection bin in the narthex.

If you would like to donate cash, please write a check payable to "St. John's," mark the envelope "Food Pantry," and drop it in the offering plate. The Pantry uses cash donations to purchase items from the Food Bank at discounted prices.

Thank you for keeping the Pantry patrons in mind while grocery shopping. During 2017, St. John's collected 942 lbs. of food for the Pantry. Thank you all for your generous support of the Pantry during the past year.
LWML Recycling
The Lutherans Women's Missionary League (LWML) mission statement asks women to use their gifts in ministry to help the people of the world. The "BLESS" project of LWML shares the items we would usually throw away to help other people in the world. The little purple dresser in the narthex has five drawers for your recycled items to be shared with others. Please help the LWML and drop off your items in the drawers – and thank you for sharing with the people of the world.
