Welcoming All into God's Peace Together
St. John's has asked for donations of clothing for the Clothes Closet Outreach, a sister ministry to their food pantry. New and gently used clothing of all types is needed and the Greater Bridgeport Deanery churches are asked to participate. If you have clothes you can donate, place them in a bag and leave it in the church library (first floor of Lewis Hall). Gail will take them to St. John's with the weekly food pantry delivery. This outreach will be ongoing! Thank you to all our members and neighbors for your donations.

ongoing collections for folks in need.
grace—the cereal church
Food donations are brought to St. Luke's, St. Paul's and
St. John's Food Pantries in Bridgeport.
Grace has been delivering canned goods and other food donations to St. Luke's / St. Paul's and
St. John's Food Pantries in Bridgeport for a long time. Although they urgently need food donations
of all kinds, one item that seems to run out fast is cereal. Knowing this, our generous donors like to
include several cereal boxes in their drops. We proudly accept the nickname, "the cereal church" and
continue to maintain it by stocking the shelves the best we can with cereal.
There is a collection basket inside the main entrance of the church, and
also one in Lewis Hall's lower level.
In our rear parking lot is the clothing drop-off shed for St. Pauly's Textile.
Items dropped off in the shed will not be put in landfills. Every
usable item is distributed to people in need in this country and around the world.
Please put your donations in closed plastic bags to keep them clean and dry.
What is accepted in the shed:
usable clothing, shoes, sneakers, belts, linens, pillow cases, blankets, curtains and stuffed animals.
What is NOT ACCEPTED in the shed:
rags, fabric scraps, pillows, toys, household goods and electronics.
