Social Ministry

The people of St. John’s serve our neighbors in various ways in our daily lives: in the work we do, through our families, neighborhoods, and communities, as citizens, and through voluntary associations. In addition, our community of faith serves our neighbors in several ways:


Allentown Ecumenical Food Bank: As we follow the example of Jesus, we help to feed hungry people in our city through this important ministry. St. John’s was the original site for this shared ecumenical service. The Food Bank is now located to 534 Chew Street in Allentown. A group of volunteers from St. John’s serves at the Food Bank on the second Friday of every month.


Lehigh Mission District Ingathering: Each December, the people of St. John’s join the Lutheran congregations of the Lehigh Mission District to serve people in need at the holidays. This program provides Christmas packages and gifts to various institutions in the Lehigh Valley. Some of the Institutions touched by this program include: Topton Home, Daybreak, Turning Point, Sixth Street Shelter, and Allentown Rescue Mission and Carenet Pregnancy Center of the Lehigh Valley.
