For the past several years, the congregation of St. John Church of Christ, Disciples of Christ, under the direction of Pastor Russell S. Wilkins, has sponsored The Thanksgiving Family Food Box Project. This year, over 100 boxes were delivered to families in Beaufort and Martin counties. The success of this project is realized through the generosity of the Missionary Ministry and the St. John church family.
