The Grapevine June 18, 2020

A Generous Opportunity

In April, we shared exciting news of how St. John the Divine’s ministries have been richly blessed, now and for the next several years, by an outstanding act of generosity. John Nau, a long-time parishioner, has made a significant gift to specifically benefit the "front door" and outreach ministries of this church. You can be part of this generous gift by joining him in support of these strategic ministries through a matching gift opportunity.

Read more about how this gift will help you, our parish, and the kingdom grow in the Grapevine.

Over thirty years ago, Dr. Mike Berkeley was a successful and prosperous orthopaedic surgeon, living the dream in Aspen, Colorado. But there was a restlessness in his heart as to his life's purpose.

Read about our world mission partner, Mexico Medical Missions, and learn how they are using an emergency grant from St. John the Divine to address the effects of COVID-19 in Mexico.
