Serve lunch at the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission (CVRM)
St. John’s has signed up to serve lunch on the first Wednesday of every month from 10 am to 12 pm – beginning Wed, Aug 7. If you’d like to join the volunteer group, please call the church office at 760-345-2122 to sign-up. Thank you!
“I was hungry and you gave me food…”
Distribution takes place on the 4th Tuesday of every month beginning at 9 am.
Feeding people, both spiritually and physically, is at the very heart of the Christian faith and our church’s life. St. John’s has been a distribution site for the Food in Need of Distribution (FIND) program serving those in need of food assistance in our community since 1995. The program is funded solely by members and friends of St. John’s Lutheran.
First time recipients need proof of residency (gas or electric bills, drivers license, etc.) Anyone from other area of the Coachella Valley will be served on their first visit and then given a directory for distribution sites in their area.
If you would like more information, or to volunteer, please contact the church office.
