For the Community

The sisters and brothers of St. John Lutheran Church love sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ through serving others. The congregation directs most of its outreach efforts to the Stocked Shelves Food Pantry, Feed My Starving Children's Green Bay MobilePack and Helping Hands, amongst other efforts as well.

Stocked Shelves Food Pantry

Stocked Shelves Food Pantry is the only food pantry in Ashwaubenon and is housed in St. John Lutheran Church. The pantry serves approxiamately 20 families per week by appointment, scheduled the previous month. Families receive, as available, both non-perishable food items including soup, cereal, pasta, peanut butter, etc. and perishable food items including meat, eggs, bread and milk.

Food donations can be dropped off any time in the shopping cart located inside the main entrance to the church and monetary donations can be made using the Square Reader (located in the lobby) or through online giving. Monetary donations are used to purchase perishable items such as meat, milk and eggs, as well as non-perishable staples when needed. If you would like to support the ministry of Stocked Shelves through a gift or by volunteering, please contact us.

Food My Starving Children

Feed My Starving Children Green Bay Mobile Pack is a group of area churches of all denominations that come together to pack meals for children that are less fortunate. Feed My Starving Children is a national non-profit organization that guides this group as it organizes a mobile pack where we pack three quarters of a million meals that will be shipped around the world. The mobile pack occurs every year in October. All are welcome to volunteer.

If you'd like to help pack meals at the next event or donate financially, please contact us.

Helping Hands

Helping Hands is a group of women who meet every Monday morning at church to knit, crochet and quilt blankets and winter clothing. The items created are donated to local organizations, as well as, provided to the newly baptized, confirmands, recent graduates and people experiencing personal hardship or medical problems. Helping hands also  holds an annual bake sale and craft fundraiser. Money raised from fundraising efforts goes to support various ministries of the church, including the youth mission trip, renovations to the church building and sponsoring families at Christmas. New quilters, knitters and crocheters are always welcome.
