Hunger Action Month (HAM) at St. John Lutheran Church
St. John Lutheran Church is home to our food pantry and St. John members have been all in for HAM, in fact, we even have a mascot, Hammy! It's been busy around here with members serving with the community at our mobile on September 7th, Sunday School students making 700 meal bags on September 15th, people guessing how much a cart of Northern Illinois Food Bank groceries cost, hosting coffee hour, and all month long everyone has been voting their choice of who will smooch the swine on Sunday, October 6th at 9:45 a.m.
It works like this...for each dollar milestone reached, someone will kiss a live pig. At $1,000 reached, Pastor Evan Mayhew will plant one on pork chop; at $2,000 Pastor Jen Beamsley will smooch the swine; at $3,000 & $4,000 people with the
most votes will lock lips with the hog (ok, maybe that's taking it too far but you get the picture!) Stop by
on October 6th and watch the fun. Kiss the Pig will be held in the Sanctuary at 9:45 a.m. If you can't
make it, we'll post photos here and on our Facebook page!
