Blessing Box Host Site
St. John's is proud to be a Blessing Box Host Site. This ministry is provided by and for our Donelson community of Nashville. The purpose of the Blessing Box is for our community to "Take as you need" and "Give as you are able." The items for the Blessing Box are: non-perishable food items, baby foods and diapers, hygiene supplies, and during the wintry cold months: blankets, sweat shirts, etc. Please help us to be a "blessing" to all those in need.
5th Sunday Breakfast
When there is a 5th Sunday in the month, members of St. John’s gather at St. Paul Lutheran Church in North Nashville to cook and provide dinner for the women and children of the Women’s Shelter in North Nashville.
During the cold wintry months of November through March, we open our doors to the homeless men, women, and children 2-3 times per month. We provide a warm place to stay, a wonderful home-cooked meal, TV and fellowship time, laundry care, a goody-bag of toiletry items, breakfast, and sack lunch to go. During the hot summer months, we donate hundreds of cases of water.
Partnership with Two Rivers Middle School
As a Community Partner with Two Rivers, we help provide hundreds of bags of food for their students to take home for weekends and breaks during the school year. We also donate school supplies and clothing. We also have members playing an active role in Two Rivers Reading Clinic.
Community Giving Garden
During the growing months of April through October we grow vegetables that are donated to our local Second Harvest Food Bank at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church
On Monday nights during the school year, we provide tutoring opportunities for the children of local elementary schools.
