We encourage and promote the art of quilting. Each year we make a quilt to raffle off with the proceeds going to Saint John's School Endowment Fund. We are an ecumenical service-oriented club and make "Caring Quilts" for Elizabeth House and Waunakee Neighborhood Connection. Our fall quilt show has a silent auction and quilt sale and the proceeds go to local charities. For information about our quilt club, you can contact Doris Ast at 849.5482.

Bakers for Parish Projects

Saint John's baker provides a variety of baked goods for special parish events such as baking cookies for college students. If you love to bake and would like to share you talent please call the parish office.


Scrip is one of Saint John's major fundraisers.  Scrip gift cards can be purchased for everyday needs, like groceries, gas, clothing and entertainment.   Saint John purchased gift cards at a discount from a National Scrip company and local retailers. Example: purchase a $100.00 gift that has a 4% discount and the earned profit for Saint John would be $4.00.  The program costs you nothing to participate and has a tremendous impact on our church.  You can purchase Scrip gift cards at the parish office.  This is a wonderful and easy way to help raise money for our parish.
