Tri-Area Ministries (TAM)

TAM collects donations of food and necessities for distribution to local families. St. John’s has been a part of this organization since its inception and continues to support TAM’s nearly 9,000 clients each year with food donations.  When we are back to in person worship, look for the red wagon in the Narthex to deposit food and hygiene items. Visit their website for more information and volunteer opportunities.

Habitat for Humanity

St. John’s participates in a coalition of local churches to help build and fund affordable housing with soon-to-be-homeowner families in Wake Forest.


Each September, many St. John’s parishioners take a 1-mile or 3-mile walk to help raise money to fight hunger locally and around the world.

Farm to Fork

Come and get your hands dirty! The Presbyterian Giving Garden (12605 Capital Blvd. in Wake Forest) is one of the hidden jewels of Wake Forest, and St. John’s has the unique opportunity to participate in the growing season again this year! Once a month, from April to October, we are invited to help in the garden on the THIRD TUESDAY from 5:30 to 6:30 PM. Presbyterian church members Pam and Larry will welcome, lead and teach you about what is needed in the garden that week.
