St. Johns Lutheran Church

Social Ministry


The social committee strives to support those in need both locally and those in need around the world. Our prayer is that as a congregation we come to understand why we support certain causes by providing education through reading material, guest speakers etc. over several months time. By doing so, we gain insight to how blessed we are and how we can bless others.

Our current projects are....


Refugee Sponsorship
St. John’s accepted community sponsorships for 
Zahra Hussein and her four unmarried children as well as Zahra’s oldest son Mohamed, his wife Miriam and two girls, aged 2 and 6. The Husseins currently wait in war torn Syria for permission to enter Canada.
St. John's participates in Wesley Urban Ministries' "Friends of Newcomers" program.
