Episcopal Men and Women’s groups are an active part of St. John’s parish life. Everyone at St. John’s (binary and non-binary!) is invited to join the group(s) that speak to their interests, and are encouraged to take part in all of our parish get-togethers. Although established as independent entities, the groups most often, work together on projects to support the ministries of the church.
Some of our fun fundraisers include a spring yard sale, a bake sale at the Mountain Glory Festival, and the always delicious Port-a-Pit chicken dinner. Profits benefit our St. John's church ministries, as well as mission that happens beyond our walls such as the Friendship House of McDowell County, the Episcopal Church of the Advocate in Asheville, and South Mountain Children’s Home (among others). Red Door Jazz is new in 2023! We had our first concert night on June 2 and it was a huge success! Watch this space for our next creative celebration.
Winterfest: A celebration of art centered spiritual gifts is the first Saturday in December. If you would like to be a part of our celebration by sharing your artistic talents whether visual or performative please see our Winterfest information page. In 2023, Winterfest is from 10-3 on Saturday, December 9th.
