Need Help?

St. John’s can do a few things for you:

  • Share your concern and we will pray for your situation on a regular basis.
  • Join us for a service you can connect to a supportive group of people.
  • Our pastor is available for short-term counseling and spiritual direction.
  • We have a small food pantry that is available.
  • We have connections with many of the different helping agencies in town and can help you reach out to the right person. We’ve seen many people helped by pointing them in the right direction.

To explore these options call us at 1-563-556-0252 or email office@stjohnsdbq.org
