Donate Now to Help Victims of Typhoon Haiyan

Donate Now to Help Victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

Mtyphoon-philipines-marqueeore than 10,000 people are estimated to have been killed by Typhoon Haiyan in the central Philippines and over 600,000 have been displaced.  Relief assistance is in short supply as aid workers struggle to reach remote towns and villages still cut off from the outside since the storm made landfall on Friday. Huge waves and winds of almost 200 mph destroyed 70-80% of the structures in the storm’s path resulting in as yet untold devastation. The typhoon may have been the strongest recorded storm ever to make landfall.

Relief needs include water, food, shelter and medical care.  Please pray for those affected by Typhoon Haiyan, for quick disaster response, overflowing generosity from donors around the world, and God’s mercy upon the disaster response process. Urgent: safe drinking water is perhaps the most pressing need. Therefore, ARDF is partnering with Water Missions International to provide clean water for victims of this tragedy.

Please make a donation through the Anglican Church in North America.  http://anglicanaid.net/urgent-relief-need-typhoon-haiyan-philippines/

Thank you for your compassionate support. We cannot respond to this disaster without you.

All gifts are used as designated. However, in the unlikely event that a relief effort becomes over-funded, your gift will be applied to other disaster needs as they arise. 85% of funds donated to Typhoon Haiyan Disaster Relief will be used for the relief and recovery in the affected areas with 15% used for administrative costs including the credit card fees.

Ministry at St. John’s

St. John’s “Purpose Statement” reads:  “With God’s Grace, Saint John’s Church is seeking to be a welcoming community of Christian faith, dedicated to the work of Jesus Christ through reverent worship of Almighty God, exercising daily prayer, providing fellowship, Christian formation, and outreach, that by faithful stewardship we will take the message of Christ into the world through our daily lives.”

Jesus commanded His Church to bring Him and His message to the world.  He told the Apostles to “teach every soul all I have taught you!”  Our “Ministry Booklet” details the regular events that occur at St. John’s that allows us to live out our Purpose Statement and follow our Lord’s command to baptize and form people in the faith.  Booklet – Ministries and Activities 2013
