What Can You Expect?

A warm welcome! 

We try to lead worship in a way that is true to our inherited traditions while exploring new expressions of our faith.  Some of our members come to church in suits and dresses, others in jeans and t-shirts.  *Children are always welcome in church but for those parents who prefer, infant and toddler care is provided every Sunday beginning at 9:00am. *Visit our Children & Youth Formation page to learn more. 

Please fill out and return the "Welcome/Connect" card you'll find in our pews; share whatever and whenever you're comfortable.

Fellowship

Fellowship... This ministry is open to anyone with a heart for greeting, entertaining and bringing people into the full life of our parish.  We always seek ways to warmly invite people of all ages and interests into our midst and to further link their lives with ours in the love of Christ.

Fellowship at St. John’s comes through a variety of social events for parishioners as well as through the warmth of all who help newcomers become part of our congregation.  Celebrating in community keeps our church vibrant and our members meaningfully connected to each other. Loving neighbors can begin close to home.lou-e-and-carol.jpg


SPECIAL EVENTS

St. John’s holds a number of stand-alone events for the entire parish throughout a year.  Members are always invited to participate in, lend support to or help lead events. In recent past, our community has enjoyed events including musical and dramatic presentations, a euchre/ games night,  summer barbeques, pancake suppers, Loons baseball games, and a pool party at the Midland Country Club.  To see specific fellowship events hosted by St. John's over the last year, click here.

 

LOAVES & FISHES 

Loaves & Fishes is a fellowship opportunity for St. John’s members to get to know one another in smaller groups, over a good meal.  Groups of about 6-8 fellow parishioners are formed with an eye to shuffling participants as much as possible year to year, so you get to meet new folks.  In a given year, each member or couple hosts a pot-luck dinner once for their group at their home, or organizes a group dinner at a local restaurant.  If you prefer eating out to hosting, simply indicate your ‘restaurant’ preference when you sign up.  The sign-up period is typically early fall; look for bulletin announcements or on the bulletin boards just outside Williams Hall.  

 

COFFEE HOUR

Regularly following our 10am worship, our time for coffee and doughnut holes nourishes fellowship among members and allows newcomers to learn more about St. John’s in a casual atmosphere. 

 

ST. MARTHA'S GUILD

This women’s group meets the fourth Tuesday of each month Sept-May.  In its usual activity, the guild served up a strawberry shortcake social for the congregation, sent holiday cards and treats to St. John’s college students, and donated to several other ministries associated with the church like King’s Daughters' Christmas Closet and SAMS Pantry.

St. John's is open to new fellowship groups... get-togethers which may serve different interests, age sets or different family dynamics (i.e. empty nesters)… please let us know if there is an interest!

Fellowship is weaved into the fabric of much of what we do in and out of church, so it’s common for it to be part of an event that may also include worship, stewardship, formation, outreach or pastoral care.  At all these events/ gatherings, we need…

pictures!  Whether we are celebrating with each other or helping others, we need pictures that tell the stories of our church and experiences. In an increasingly visual communications world, St. John’s needs to be able to share what we do in illustrative images.  So please, when appropriate,  aim your camera to capture St. John’s – who we are and what we do – and get them to our office however you can or share them on our Facebook page.  Help us complete the ‘picture’ of St. John's!
