Serving in the Community

You will be enriched in every way for great generosity,
which through us will produce thanksgiving to God”

2 Corinthians 9:11

St. John the Divine is blessed in many ways and one blessing is the generosity of our parishioners. Through this generosity St. John the Divine, in turn, donates back to the community.

Burkburnett Project Back to School

Project Back to School exists to improve the educational success of the  disadvantaged children in our community by providing items needed for school, building their self-esteem a​nd improving their well-being.  St. John gives to the worthy cause annually to insure disadvantaged children in Burkburnett, Texas are ready for school by providing needed school supplies.

Boomtown Pharmacy

There are many in our community that for one reason or another need help with costs of medications.  St. John’s monthly donations help to meet the needs of those who cannot afford today’s high costs making it possible for those in need.

Camp Crucis

Camp Crucis seeks to be a peaceful place of Christian Community for nurturing, planning, reflection, discussion and serves as a diocesan resource center for ministry, education, and spiritual renewal. Camp Crucis serves the congregations and organizations of the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth as well as other non-Anglican church denominations and organizations, private and public schools, non-profit groups and organizations as well as individuals, families and private groups.

Gainesville State School for Boys

The Gainesville State School is a juvenile correctional facility of the Texas Juvenile Justice Department in unincorporated Cooke County, Texas, near Gainesville. St. John donates monthly to the Student Council Center to insure the boys have certain needs met.  These needs can range from personal items such as clothing and shoes and to help in whatever their needs are when they leave the school.

Grace Ministries

Grace Ministries Food Pantry in Burkburnett is where people in the community can go for emergency assistance with utility bills, rent, food, and more. St. John donates both monetarily and with pantry needs each month.

Ruth Ann Wiley Memorial Christmas Gift Shop

The Christmas Gift Shop is a one-day event on the first Saturday of December which allows children age 12 years and under from the community – who might otherwise not be able to purchase gifts for mom and dad, grandma, grandpa, or some other important person in their lives – the opportunity to choose gifts, at no cost, for two people.

Members work obtaining donations for the gift shop throughout the year and then come together with friends and family to provide a unique morning for these children. Santa is always present to hear children’s requests and the opportunity to have a pictures taken.  Santa’s helpers help the children shop and while their gifts are being wrapped, enjoy a drink and snack.

This tradition dates back more than 25 years honoring one of St. John’s past members.
