The St. John’s Market will be here before we know it! More information about booths, volunteer needs, and more for this fun annual event (Saturday, November 20), can be found on the ST. JOHN’S MARKET section of our website.
While this annual holiday bazaar is a popular fellowship and community building event, it is also one of St. John’s largest outreach projects. Market proceeds support both parish ministries and community organizations. Each year, 50 percent of the money raised at our annual Market is designated for outreach and is awarded to organizations that address a current critical need in the community. The grants can be used for supplies, educational materials, equipment, or infrastructure for non-profit organizations. Past market grants have been awarded to agencies such as Big Bend Community Based Care, Bach Parley String Academy, Habitat for Humanity, The Kearney Center, Second Harvest, the Tallahassee Museum, Grace Mission, and hurricane relief activities.
This year’s deadline for grant submissions is November 15, 2021. The grant request form and criteria for submissions can be viewed and DOWNLOADED HERE. Notification of grant awards will be made the week before Christmas and checks will be cut and mailed before December 31, 2021.
Please direct all questions about Market Grants to Lindsay Hardy, Parish Administrator.
