Mustard Seed Project

The Mustard Seed Project is simple, yet it has the power to change the world by planting seeds of hope and compassion for people in Houston. For this project, a person will be asked to use $100 to help a person or a group of people in his/her community through a simple act of kindness.

St. John's Faith In Action Committee hopes the “seed” money will plant feelings of inspiration in the lives of people living without hope, cultivate benevolence among humans, and, ultimately, grow God’s Kingdom.
As stated in Matthew 13:31-32, “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all the seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and perch in its branches.”

The Faith In Action Committee invites members of the congregation to pray about where God is calling them to serve people in need. If members feel impassioned to engage in such an act of compassion and service, they will be given $100 to invest through the Mustard Seed Project.

The hope of this ministry is to empower its members to meet people’s needs and provide a lasting impact on the community, whether that impact is large and far reaching, or small and heartfelt.  If interested in receiving funding for a Mustard Seed Project, please contact Pastor Jon, or Tom and Claire MacAdam.
