See the poster below and inform yourself on what goes in the green compost bucket!
We use Wastenot Compost. Check out how you might use their services.
We also collect natural corks – the carbon cost of recycling was too much, but we can compost them!
St. John’s Antiracism Mission
As members of St. John’s Episcopal Church, we work to identify, disrupt, and dismantle racism within our church and our community.

Thank you for supporting St. John’s! There are four ways to give to St. John’s.

You can write a check and mail it to the office: 3857 N Kostner Ave. Chicago, IL 60641. The cost to you is the envelope and the stamp (about $.60).
If your bank offers on-line bill payment you can schedule a reoccurring payment. You just need the name and address of the church. If you have a pledge number please add it to the memo line. The bank will generate and send the checks to St. John’s. There is no fee for this.
