Feeding the Multitude

In the Bible story, Jesus miraculously feeds thousands of hungry people with only two fish and five loaves. Relying on hours of hard work, cooperation, and prayer, members of John’s Island church congregations pull off their own Feeding of the Multitude annually on the Saturday before Thanksgiving.

Last year, the pandemic led to an even greater need, more prayers, and calls for help in the form of donations of food and money. (via CharlestonMag.com) LEARN MORE

Each November, members of Faith Lutheran help decorate a Witting Tree (also known as a "Veterans Suicide Awareness Tree"). The term "witting" means to be cognizant, deliberate, and aware to the facts of a situation. Each day, 22 dog tags are hung in the tree to represent the 22 veteran lives that are lost each day to suicide.
