For so many people “the church” has become a place of intolerance or a place where they feel that they cannot be loved just as they are. Stand with us this year as we remind ourselves and remind all of those around us that God is a God of Love and a God of ALL people!
THERE IS A PLACE FOR YOU! Come Just As You Are!
“In Christ’s family there can be no division ... Among us you are ALL equal” - Galatians 3:28
As is our practice, we offer the imposition of Glitter Ash. The imposition of Ash reminds of our humble beginnings and reminds us to look inward to our spirits rather than to our material possessions. To those around us, the mark of ash on our forehead is an outward physical symbol of our commitment to the Christ way of life. We prepare the ash from the burnt offerings of last year's Palm/Passion Sunday ... the beginning of the Holy Week preceding Easter.
We add the glitter component to remind us of God’s love of ALL people, regardless of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender identity, sexual orientation, or any of the other things that have been used to try to separate us. The glitter symbolizes God’s RAINBOW people from EVERY walk of life.

Hurricane Laura made landfall in Cameron, Louisiana on 27 August 2020. The storm was one of the strongest on record to ever hit the US and left a path of destruction that is unimaginable.
Many towns such as Vinton, Louisiana were devastated. Most of the residents have either lost their homes or they have been severely damaged.
St. John’s MCC, along with MCC of New Orleans and Baton Rouge, are partnering to provide supplies and assistance to the area. We are planning mission trips to address specific needs and welcome your support.
