ST. JOHNS PARTNERS WITH FAMILY PROMISE
This year, SJPC is a host church for Family Promise of Jacksonville. Family Promise provides temporary assistance, hospitality, and case management for families with children experiencing homelessness. During the spring of 2019, SJPC partnered with Family Promise and hosted two families at our church for one-week in April. From August 25-September 1, we will be hosting up to three families for another week long stay! During this time we will be offering meals, overnight accommodations, and other hospitality as we pour out God’s love into people of our community. There are so many ways to get involved….big and small. Please consider joining us as we strive to be the hands and feet of Jesus.
