St John’s reaches out into the community and world through its “Mission 100” ministry. The goal is to have at least 100 persons donating a minimum of $1 per week to selected ministries. 1st Quarter Offerings: Share the Warmth
When winter and cold temperatures arrive, thousands in Greensboro face the prospect of no heat, no shelter, little food, and skyrocketing energy prices. But, you can help with a donation to Urban Ministry’s Winter Fund. The Winter Fund will help support our WE (Winter Emergency) Shelters, provide heating assistance, and prevent homelessness for families and individuals in crisis. Please consider making a donation and help those who have nowhere else to turn. For more information, go to http://www.greensborourbanministry.org/annual_events/community_fund/index.html.
2nd Quarter Offerings: Teen Challenge
For more than 30 years, Greater Piedmont Teen Challenge has helped many young men struggling with drug and alcohol addictions. If youth want to change, we want to help! Troubles with drugs and/or alcohol, family and the law are symptoms of a deeper need. Teen Challenge GPTC helps men ages 18-45 break the bonds of drug and alcohol addiction and along the way invites them to discover the ultimate answer – a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

3rd Quarter Offerings: National Concerns
Henderson Settlement is a Mission Agency of the General Board of Global Ministries of the UMC. Located in the mountains, it provides basic human resources and supplies to many mountain persons in economic straits.
The Hunter Elementary School is located across the street from St. John's. We partner with them to provide for children and families in need of assistance through the Family Fund set up through the social worker's office.
4th Quarter Offerings: Cambodian Street Children & Wollin Family
Mission 100: 4th Quarter donations will be divided between two missions: First, the Wollin family, Cambodian Missionaries work at educating persons from all classes of society while sharing the love of Christ. Second, Clara Biswas’ “Cambodian Street Children” ministry. A ministry began by Ariel Collins, Clara is working with the leadership of these poor neighbors to build schools, provide nutritious meals and health car to the poorest-of-the-poor children in Cambodia.
Each person is encouraged to invest $1 a week towards this ministry! Our goal is 100 persons giving $1 a week, or $1,200 for three months.
