Local Outreach

Daggett School Supplies Aug 2007 002Our social ministry grows directly from the Gospel of Jesus Christ and it’s a huge part of our parish life! We seek to live out authentic Gospel values, seeking to serve our Lord by helping Him to build a just and loving society, striving for holiness amidst the challenges of modern culture, and seeking to turn souls towards Him. Christ calls us to love as deeply as possible. We are called to love as God loves. This Christ-like love is intentional, and sacrificial. We strive to exercise love at this deep level as we serve others and share our faith. The relationships we form during various service ministries allow us to encounter Jesus Christ. Our goal is to integrate His Gospel values, even through challenges, so that together with those we serve we can realize a deeper unity with Jesus Christ. The following is an outline of various ministries and opportunities that we support and participate in through our Outreach ministries:

Camp Crucis, “Where the glories of Christ are seen and experienced!”

Camp Crucis is the summer camp and retreat center of the Diocese and serves as both an outstanding Christian summer camp for the spiritual growth, recreation, and interaction with God’s creation for children and teens from all denominations and all walks of life, and also a wonderful retreat center for various adult groups during other times of the year. Residing on 140 wooded, rolling acres near Stroud’s Creek in the lake country surrounding historic town of Granbury, the Mission of Camp Crucis is “to help individuals of all ages and all walks of life to develop in their daily walk with Christ; to deepen their sense of reverence and respect for themselves, for others and for God’s Creation and to deepen their personal relationship with God.”

Fort Worth Pregnancy Center

The Fort Worth Pregnancy Center helps women with the information and support they need to make an informed decision about unplanned pregnancies. This includes various services and options, beginning with free pregnancy testing. Many of the FWPC clients are young unwed teenage women who are not prepared financially or emotionally for what they are facing. FWPC helps with all of that. Quite simply, FWPC is a ministry of hope for those who often times come in with nothing but fear. Thousands of women and babies have been blessed by the good work that they do.

SafeHaven Shelter

Safe Haven provides support, shelter, protection, and other needs to women and children who are victims of domestic abuse. St. John’s is honored to partner with SafeHaven, and to support them in this important work and ministry. Every December we collect toys and Bibles to give them, and we host a beautiful sit-down Christmas dinner for them, complete with a volunteer waitstaff that serves them at their tables. Then we provide them with fun activities, including time with Santa to receive their anonymous gifts.

Habitat for Humanity

Spring/Summer – Saint John’s partners with Trinity Habitat for Humanity to help build homes for needy families in Tarrant county.

Iglesia San Miguel

Iglesia San Miguel is a mission parish of the Diocese. At Saint John’s, we are honored to have Father Sergio Diaz and the good people of Iglesia San Miguel as our partners in mission.

Ronald McDonald House

At least once a year people of St. John’s take an evening to serve dinner to families with critically ill children in Fort Worth hospitals.

Daggett Elementary School

Every August at St. John’s, we collect school supplies, and money for school supplies, to help provide our neighborhood school with all of the supplies that the school and many of its underprivileged students will need as they begin a new school year.

Anglican Relief and Development

ARDF is the global arm of the Anglican Church in North America that works specifically to spread God’s love around the world by providing relief to those who are victims of disasters or are otherwise in particular need. At St. John’s we have a drive each September to raise funds to send to ARDF to support them in this important Gospel ministry.

Union Gospel Mission

Every winter and spring at St. John’s, we collect clothing and food for the Union Gospel Mission homeless shelter, and our parishioners volunteer their time to serve meals, play games, and watch movies with the residents of this wonderful shelter.

“Rise up, O men of God. Tread where His feet have trod. As brothers of the Son of Man, rise up O men of God.” 🎶 Such a fitting anthem was sung today at Mass in honor of all the fathers, uncles, grandfathers, godfathers, and father-figures represented in our congregation. We are thankful for the way you all lead our families. May the prayer said over you this morning bless you in this upcoming year as you seek to follow Jesus more closely.We also are mindful of those missing a father, grandfather, or special male role model in their lives today. You are in our prayers. ♥️Finally, we want to thank Father Wilgus, Father Foster, and Father Bosworthfor guiding our flock with such love and care. Happy Father’s Day to all! ... See MoreSee Less
