Our Ministries

Our ministries at St. John's are thriving, and always open to new people and new ideas.  Join us for one or all.  These ministries help us to remember who we are as a community of faith, and who we are as a people.  The groups show the various talents we have in our community, and remind us to be stewards with our gifts to something greater than ourselves.  If you are interested in being a part of any or all of our groups, please contact us.  We would love to have you in our community.
