Community “SHRED AND BREAD” Event Success – Raised $1,000 for helping hands!

St Johns hosted a Community “SHRED AND BREAD” event on Saturday 1 October .  The customers that utilized the free shredding donated $1,000 to helping hands, as well as ~250 lbs. of non-perishable food items. Since the food banks can obtain food for around ~$0.20/lb., your generous donations will provide over 4,250 lbs. of food to the pantry, enough to support more than 350 families for a month. THANK YOU for your generosity. 

If you missed our event  and want to donate to Helping Hands anyway via credit card, follow our “Secure Donation Link” on this page and and select Miamisburg Helping Hands option. 100% percent of donations go to helping hands.

St Johns Updates our Youth Protection Guidelines

The Congregation of St Johns Lutheran Church, in coordination with the National Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the ELCA Southern Ohio Synod, has unanimously adopted an update youth protection policy for activities involving minor children within the Congregation’s property. This naturally applies to our own youth program like Sunday School, but also applies to any organization utilizing our facilities on a regular basis for youth activities. Examples include our sponsored Girl Scout Troops and our Tamil Language School. If you are interested in reading the policy, please click here.
