Adopt A Garden Ministry
St. John's is well blessed with beautiful landscaping and gardens around the church and parish house. Some of the areas can easily be taken care of by one person, while others may need a group of people to maintain them. Some areas will require regular weekly or monthly maintenance, others only require maintenance once or twice a season. If you would be interested in this ministry, please sign up and we will let you pick your garden to fare for at your convenience for the season.
