Benevolence

Just as our individual members are called to support the ongoing ministry here at St. John’s, so, too, is our congregation called to support others in our community.In recent years over 14% of our budget has been directed to external organizations that range from greater ELCA initiatives to support for local community service groups, such as Habitat for Humanity and the Northfield Community Action Center.

In addition, we seek to provide volunteer support to those same organizations, through leadership and participation in larger synodical endeavors, to things like Meals on Wheels.
