Whether checking things out or exploring what it means to have faith in Jesus Christ, you’re welcome here. We're from different experiences; some with faith background & many with none, others broken by the church, and some reacquainted with faith. We are progressives & conservatives, young families, aging adults, play-filled kids, from the neighborhood & around the city, radically inclusive, vulnerable, wounded, discovering & open.
Here are five great ways to get connected and develop friendships in a faith community?
1. Celebrate! Attend worship regularly.
During worship, there are many opportunities to engage – volunteer to read scripture, participate in music and other rituals, or enjoy the moments of silence and prayer. We encourage everyone to worship as they feel comfortable.
3. Be in Community! Join a group or a St. John’s sponsored activity.
Whether it's a small group where you connect through a Bible study or coming to a church picnic and potluck, groups and activities are the places to develop friendships. There's always something going on at this place.
As an intergenerational faith community, read what we covenant together.
4. Commit! Volunteer to help out.
Whether it’s teaching our children in our children's program or simply bringing goodies to share at worship, be part of something bigger than yourself. Use your gifts and experiences to serve others and develop friendships.
5. Be Compassionate! Serve the community.
St. John’s strives to be a community center with a congregation at its heart. Whether it’s handing out groceries through Harvest or opening our doors daily for personal prayer and reflection, we hope to be a sanctuary for not only St. John’s, but for the community as well.
