St. John’s Episcopal Church

Salem, NJ
What do you want this person to do?
St. John’s is a small but dedicated congregation. We desire to partner with a Rector that is committed to helping our church grow in numbers, faith and outreach, while honoring our past and present.

Although we have a small congregation, it is a very dedicated group. We work together to provide community, fellowship and support to our members and to the community surrounding us. Our outreach programs continue to grow. We have programs that have been in place for a long time, such as our Quilters, who sew quilts for children at the Ronald McDonald House in Camden; our food pantry; and our music ministry. We also have newer initiatives, such as our Backpack Program for 8th Grade students at Salem Middle School; Trunk or Treat at Halloween to give neighborhood children a safe place to trick-or-treat; and our Secret Santa Shop, which children are invited to come ‘shop’ for Christmas gifts for family members. Our Deacon, who has been with us for 4 years, has spearheaded many of our newest initiatives. She is one of our greatest strengths. When our previous rector was here, she assisted him in many ways and initiated many new outreach programs. In the absence of a rector, she continues to direct our outreach and provides continuity of spiritual direction to our parish. Finally, whenever we talk about our strengths, we have to acknowledge the endowments that help to fund our building upkeep, outreach projects and special activities.
