Harvest Sunday November 21

On Harvest Sunday you have an opportunity to share your blessings with those in our community. All contributions from Harvest Sunday go to Braes Interfaith Ministries (BIM) to support its work in our neighborhood providing for those who need food, clothing and other essentials.

You can share your harvest with a contribution of food, putting bags of food in the Narthex, or money (check made out to St. John’s with BIM on the memo line). Donations of money can be used by BIM to purchase food from the Houston Food Bank. ($1 dollar buys $27 worth of food.)
