STEWARDSHIP COMMITTEE Stewardship Booklet
Stewardship of Service is the personal virtue that allows each of us to use God's gifts wisely, to the best of our ability, and for the good of the Church.
The mission of the Stewardship Committee is to educate, inspire and encourage our parish community to become fully engaged through faith-filled prayer, service and sharing.
The vision of the Stewardship Committee is to be a total Stewardship parish. Stewardship Video
We believe that if someone feels connected to the parish that it helps them feel connected to God. This is often done by sharing their gifts and God-given talents with our parish and with the community. We develop plans around three basic areas of stewardship: Service (our talents), Sharing (Financial) and Prayer. Contact: Roseann Mader email: [email protected]
The Hospitality Committee's objective is to actively pursue ways to foster an environment that will insure all parishioners and visitors are and feel truly welcome at St. John the Baptist Parish. Along with current parish members, we actively invite new parishioners to become engaged in parish life soon after registering. We hold semi-annual pot luck dinners to acquaint new parishioners with parish leadership and meet others through one-on-one invitation. We promote fellowship through introduction to various ministries by way of Coffee and Roll Sundays hosted by members of a different ministry throughout the year. Our motto that we strive for is; "All are welcome in this Holy Place to worship, to deepen our faith and to mature into a community of solidarity and discipleship".

FEED MY STARVING CHILDREN
Turning Hunger into Hope
Every year, millions of children die from preventable causes such as pneumonia, diarrhea, malaria and undernutrition. Hunger is still causing nearly half of deaths in children under 5 years old. From this data, we estimate at least 6,200 children die each day from causes related to undernutrition. This is heartbreaking.
Feed My Starving Children (FMSC) believes hope starts with food. As a Christian nonprofit, FMSC is dedicated to seeing every child whole in body and spirit. FMSC works with food distribution partners that stay with communities for the long haul, empowering them to move from relief to development.
St. John’s has been involved with FMSC since 2014. Our parishioners have contributed financially and through volunteer hours for the MobilePack held in October of each year. With God’s help we will work together with organizations from our community and ministries across the globe to end hunger.
The reports are in for MobilePack 2019!
Below are the three locations that meals were shipped from the Green Bay Feed My Starving Children Mobil pack last October. Click on the links to see some of the recipients. Thank you all for your support and participation.
- 972 Boxes (209,952 meals) shipped to Guatemala through our partner Buckner International.

In total, FMSC shipped all of the 3,492 boxes (754,272 meals) that were packed at the 2019 Green Bay MobilePack. Thank you for your continued partnership with Feed My Starving Children; we simply cannot do what we do without your love for our mission and leadership over this event!
Thank you, St. John the Baptist, for providing approximately 53,644 of the 754,272 meals or a meal a day for a year to 35 children!
