  • Coffee Hour
  • Medical Equipment Closet


St. John's Medical Equipment Closet was started to help match and supply donated medical equipment to those who have a need for it.  This ministry collects equipment donations, cleans and checks them, and makes them available to anyone in the community who has a need.  Equipment is available at no cost and is not a loan.  We do ask that when the receiver no longer needs the equipment, it be passed along to bless someone else (or it can be returned to St. John's).  Examples of available equipment include:   wheelchairs, walkers, canes, crutches, bedside commodes, shower seats, elevated toilet seats, bed rails, disposable hygiene items (pull-ups, bedpads)…

If you, or someone you know, have a need for medical equipment, please call St. John's church office at (419) 898-6474.  We are open Monday through Thursday from 8:30-4:00 and Friday 8:30-12:00.  If you have used equipment in good condition and would like to donate it, please bring it to the church at 122 W. Ottawa St. in Oak Harbor.  If you have a large or unusual item to donate, please call first to be sure we are able to accept it.
