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 Youth Formation page to learn more if desired. 

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

ABOUT US MORE QUESTIONS?

Pastoral Care

Answering God’s call to be ministers, we can be His hands and feet in the world.  We can be Christ caring for people through people.  We can get out to give care.

Many at St. John’s care for their church friends and family in informal ways as diverse as the people themselves.  The ministries below are St. John’s formal pastoral care efforts. Orientation/ training is provided to volunteers as needed.

In addition to clergy visits, pastoral care at St. John’s is a ‘member to member’ ministry.  Volunteers provide care to our congregation members as we experience all kinds of life needs and circumstances.  Welcoming newcomers, visiting the sick, comforting those in need, sharing the Eucharist with those unable to come to church – these are acts of loving neighbors.

PASTORAL CARE COMMITTEE

This committee receives professional assistance from clergy regarding preparation for pastoral counseling and educational events.  Recently, those parishioners visited regularly by members of this committee have numbered about 20 and those visits have taken place in 15 different institutions and homes.

(LAY) EUCHARISTIC VISITING MINISTERS

Clergy and lay members of the congregation work together to carry the Eucharist from our altar to those of the congregation who are unable to be physically present with us for any period of time.  *Participation as a Eucharistic Visiting Minister is limited to those who are baptized.

FUNERAL RECEPTIONS AND LUNCHEONS

Volunteer your donations of prepared or purchased food or your time to serve the day of the service.  Leadership of this ministry rotates every 3 months.

DAUGHTERS OF THE KING dok-logo.jpg

This group of women are committed to a life-long program of daily prayer, service and evangelism and are dedicated to the spread of Christ’s kingdom and the strengthening of spiritual life of our congregation.  Our DOK chapter meets monthly to maintain a confidential prayer list; pray for the church, the clergy and others in need; make prayer beads to share with those in need of prayer; and to prepare approximately 500 stamped Christmas cards for the clients of SAMS Pantry to use.  They also coordinate an emergency prayer chain for any members of St. John’s who are in need.  Last year, the Daughters sponsored a workshop on Centering Prayer which led to the formation of a Centering Prayer group that continues to meet monthly.   To visit this organization's national website, click on the image at right.  

PRAYER CHAIN

In each Sunday's bulletin and announcements, there are names of those we've been asked to remember in prayer.  During the week, some of our members keep these and other intentions in their daily prayers.  To ask for someone to be remembered in our prayers, or to share in the daily prayer needs of our congregation, please contact us.
