    Fresh Start is an outreach program sponsored by St. Luke's Episcopal Church. It is coordinated by Deacon Dianna Deaderick along with her husband Doug. This mission provides free food, clothing, free showers and free laundry services to those in need. All this takes place in the O'Neal Center on Thursdays from 10 am to 3 pm and the second and fourth Saturdays. Donations of men's boxers (large and x-large) would be appreciated.

    Make your donations by dropping off items in the Fresh Start box at St. John's located in the break room across from the parish office in Heyward Hall. Volunteers are always needed too.

  • A Willing Servant of the People

    From Servant Ministry at St. John's

    We ask the congregation to continue to show its support for Harvest Hope Food Bank.  Founded in 1981, the organization provides food to those in need across 20 different counties in the state of South Carolina. In the fiscal year of 2014-2015, Harvest Hope distributed 27,405,347 lbs of food to provide hunger relief for individuals in our service area.  Harvest Hope accepts a large variety of canned goods and non-perishable foods, but they are especially in need of specific items.
    List of Items Most Needed
    Food items and plastic shopping bags can be brought to the basket containers at every Sunday service at St John's.   You can find the containers right behind the front doors of the Barr Center. 
    We also ask that you make monetary donations when you can to Harvest Hope.
    Let's all do what we can to feed a hungry soul today!

    “And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.”  John 6:35
