St. John’s Parish provides a variety of programs and experiences which encourage and teach individuals as they give every aspect of their lives to Jesus Christ. Your life as a Jesus-follower is initiated by the Holy Spirit but it is dependent upon your active involvement and presence with Christ as a daily pattern or habit. In order to celebrate and encourage your personal engagement with Christ St. John’s Parish offers a number of events and programs. All of these activities at St John's, from Bible Studies to simple Pot Lucks are intentional efforts to help us all to conform to Christ and not to the world. How can you prepare yourself so your answer will daily be a resounding “Yes!
These include: Sunday School - Fellowship Events (inter-generational and age-specific) - Bible Studies - Retreats - Partner Programs - Volunteering
