Lutheran Women’s Missionary League

The Lutheran Women’s Missionary League (LWML) has experienced a recent renewal at St. John’s. Understanding that they have been so richly blessed and there are many in need, the women of St. John’s feel that they can be a blessing to others. All are welcome to join them in their mission.

LWML mission statement:
The mission of the Lutheran Women’s Missionary League is to assist each woman of The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod in affirming her relationship with the Triune God so that she is enabled to use her gifts in ministry to the people of the world. Any woman who is a confirmed member of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod is considered a member of the LWML, however, all women are welcomed and invited to attend our events.

Meetings are held quarterly on the second Saturday of the month with the Mite Box Offering collected the following day during worship service.

Youth Group

The main goal of the St. Johns Youth Group is to unite the youth of the congregation and to form a better relationship with Jesus Christ in the midst of having a good time.  If you are a current youth group member be sure to check out the last news and updates page for more details and information on upcoming events and happenings with the St. Johns Lutheran Youth Group. Be sure to check the mast for upcoming activities, and do not forget to like us on facebook.

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry is a caring ministry performed by volunteers. These are people who provide a listening ear and walk with people through those difficult times in life. They provide an important extension of the pastoral care ministry.

Camera Club

The Camera Club of St. John’s meets the first Tuesday of each month. The “club” learns photographic techniques from a DVD series entitled Fundamentals of Photography. The teacher is National Geographic Magazine photographer Joel Sartore. In the first several lesson we have learned about aperture, shutter speed, depth of field, light and shadows, and composition, i.e. how to “see” things differently.
As we gain knowledge and confidence in our photographic techniques we will present some of our pictures on the web site for your enjoyment. Check out a few examples here.

Come and join us – the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. in the church basement.
