The Women of St. Johns (LWML) group is open to all women of St John’s. Ladies meet monthly (Sept-May) on the second Monday of the month. This group of volunteers daily dedicate their lives to making a difference in the world. The “Lutheran Women in Mission” seek to develop and maintain a greater mission consciousness among women through education, inspiration and service. The major focus is the support of mission and ministry throughout the world by means of mite box offerings. The group collects mite money every first Sunday during the Worship services which is an important part of their efforts. These offerings are used for District Projects Grants (75%) and National Project Grants (25%). At the meetings, they enjoy Bible Study, Fellowship, Refreshments and Speakers.
Adult Bible Study
St. John’s offers many opportunities for adults to be involved in Bible study. Every Sunday morning, adult classes are led during Sunday School hour. On Tuesday mornings at 10:00am there is a Bible study for senior adult women in the music room. And Thursday mornings at 10:00 am a Bible study for women is held in the music room. Thursday nights at 7:00pm, there is an adult Bible study class for those who are seeking to dig deeper into scripture.
On Sunday mornings, Sunday school classes are offered for children ages 2 through 18. Each class is taught by passionate leaders who love working with children and teaching the Good News for the children to take home and share with their parents. Whether learning about Joseph’s forgiveness for his siblings or talking about what it means to be a true friend, students will be growing in their faith and relationship with God while having fun in a loving environment.
At St. John’s, we believe that the family is the primary faith system for strengthening our members in Christ. For this reason, we aim to nurture the family unit and provide ways for all types of families to grow closer to God and each other. We have many opportunities for families to share in fellowship activities, inter-generational worship, and at-home Bible studies. Not only are families aided in connecting with each other, but they are also connected into the St. John’s family and the family of God as a whole. Some of our yearly family events include:
- Vacation Bible School
- Cocoa and Carols
- Daddy Daughter Dance
- Camp Linn Haven Family Weekend Retreat
- Mother Son Jamboree
- Fall Bonfire
- October Fest
- St. John’s School Carnival
- Special Events during Lutheran Schools Week
- St. John’s Lutheran School Spring Musical
Sr. Youth Ministry
The Sr. Youth Ministry provides opportunities for high school students to grow in Christian relationships with their peers and mentoring adults while simultaneously strengthening their relationship with the almighty God. Through the use of fellowship, service, Bible Studies, and personal ministries, the Sr. Youth of the church seek to gain a better understanding of their personal faith while developing an energizing love for God and their neighbor. They meet every Sunday.
Jr. Youth Ministry
The Jr. Youth Ministry allows for middle school students, grades 6th through 8th, to meet twice a month and build the core relationships that will continue to guide them down the path as faithful followers of Jesus Christ. Through fellowship, service, and devotions, these young teens begin to explore what it means to have a deep relationship with God while using their gifts and talents to love and serve His people.
