The Women’s Center of Waukesha County provides safety, shelter and support to help women and their families who are impacted by domestic abuse, sexual violence, child abuse, and trafficking. Their programs include a 24-Hour Hotline, emergency shelter, counseling, support groups, and transitional living, to name just a few.

St. John’s has a long standing relationship of providing support to the Women’s Center. To assist them, our monthly donations emphasis for April will focus on the following items:

*facial tissues                

*toilet paper  

*paper towels                

*diapers (sizes 4, 5 & 6)

*baby wipes

*batteries (sizes AA and AAA)

*liquid laundry soap (gentle/dye free)


A very special “Thank You” for your donations. During April, donations may be put in the shopping cart in the narthex. Donation of items are accepted and encouraged year-round - those donations may be placed in the blue bins in the Donation Location

ELCA Hunger Appeal

The world provides enough food for all, but more than 800 million people around the world face chronic hunger. We believe in a God of abundance, so as a church, we live out our call in baptism to strive for a just world where all are fed. ELCA World Hunger is our church wide ministry to end hunger and poverty. We walk alongside our partners and companions in the United States and more than 60 other countries. Your gifts to ELCA World Hunger address hunger and poverty around the world with creative and courageous action. St Johns is recognized as one of the top donating churches to the ELCA World Hunger Appeal. For more information visit: https://www.elca.org/hunger


Bread for the World  


Bread for the World i a collective Christian voice urging our nation's decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad.  Moved by God's grace in Jesus Christ, we advocate for a world without hunger. Bread members send letters and emails, make phone calls, and visit their members of Congress about legislation that addresses hunger in the U.S. and around the world.  Bread equips its members to communicate with Congress and to work with others on advocacy.  It educates members on hunger-related isses and inspires members to be legislative activists as a way of putting their Christian faith into action.

St Johns has an Offering of Letter weekend each year, usually in April. 2019 will be our 12th year.  The 2019 campaign urges our government to accelerate progress toward ending hunger by increasing fudning for global nutrition programs and asking Congress to increase funding for the nutrition and health of mothers, infants, and children.
