Community Outreach

Food Pantry Ministry

Through the generous donation of our members and the community, we provide food to those in need. We have partnered with the Northern Illinois Food Bank to stretch our monetary donations as far as possible. In addition to monetary donations, food may be dropped off in the shopping carts located in the narthex. The food pantry is open Tuesdays 12:30pm - 2:30pm and Thursdays & Saturdays 9-11:00am. Contact: Dawn MacGregor, Food Pantry Director at 815-439-2320. Check out the St. John Food Pantry's website with up-to-date information, to volunteer, Mobile Food Pantry schedules and more at stjohnfood.org.

Daybreak Ministry

Prepare and serve meals for the homeless. Members donate food to the church by signing up in the narthex, so that our team can prepare, deliver & serve the evening meal at the Daybreak shelter on Cass Avenue in Joliet. Contact: Jennifer Radtke at 815-439-2320.


Please join us in serving the homeless of our community on the first Thursday of each month.

Two ways to help:  Donate food needed to make the meal or help serve dinner at Daybreak homeless shelter on Cass Avenue in Joliet. Sign up on the poster boards in the Narthex to donate or volunteer!
