Get Involved In Ministry
There are many opportunities to share the talents and gifts God has given us. All are called to use our gifts to serve God’s work in this world. We encourage everyone to use these gifts and get involved in the life of this church. The following are the many areas in which you can “Get Plugged In”.
Help nurture our congregation by filling out and addressing birthday, anniversary and condolence cards. All supplies/postage are supplied for you. This ministry can be done in the comfort of your home. Card writing is assigned a month at a time.
We all are a part of this ministry; lending a helping hand with requests for varying types of non-repetitive assistance: meals, yard work, transportation, home upkeep or repairs, cleaning, etc. Parishioners may request help for themselves or for others when need arises. All parishioners will receive emails with the request of assistance.
Cursillo is often a life changing weekend designed to raise up people of the church and give them tools to share the Good News with those in their communities through a dedicated life of piety, study, and action.
A freezer containing casseroles and soups will be maintained to provide church members and our neighbors with emergency meals when needed. Cooking days are held as needed
The Hospitality Ministry strives to meet the needs for the preparation and the serving of food and beverages as needed or as called upon. We provide and serve cookies and coffee for our members and guests between Sunday Services. This ministry may provide hospitality services for other special events; we may assist in parish events that are centered around hospitality such as potlucks and receptions. This may include set-up, decorating, serving, and clean-up.
Food, Fun and Fellowship!! The Lunch Bunch meets the second Wednesday of each month at 11:30am at a different restaurant around town.
“Welcome one another, therefore, as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God”. Romans: 15:7
We welcome and share the love of Christ and St. John’s with those new to our family. We do this in many ways; from baking and dropping off bread as a welcome gift, giving tours of our church facilities and hosting the Newcomer’s Dinners.
Our call by Christ is to love all people. This ministry is for those who discern a call to listen, to care for, and encourage those in our congregation who are going through a crisis or difficult time.
The Prayer Shawl Ministry meets once a month at the church. They provide hand-knitted and crocheted shawls to give to those in need of healing and comfort; they also makes the baby afghans that are presented to infants upon baptism. Come knit and/or crochet with fellowship and fun, all while serving others. All skill levels are welcome.
This ministry works with children from preschool to seniors in high school. Please consider using your talents and time to nurture, pass the faith and have fellowship with young people. Teachers and assistants are needed for Sunday mornings (lesson plans/supplies provided), You do not need to have teaching experience and/or be a Bible scholar.
We also need substitute teachers, volunteers to help with snacks and special events. Come see where the action is on Sunday mornings!
