Ministries

There are many opportunities in which members and friends of all ages may participate at St. John's UMC.


Youth


United Methodist Youth Fellowship, or UMYF, of St. John's is composed of students in grades 6-12 and the adults who love sharing Christ with them. It is our goal to balance fun, learning, worship, and service as we help young people and their families navigate the crazy times of middle and high school.

Women


United Methodist Women is a supportive, inclusive Christian membership organization where women like you grow spiritually, develop as leaders and serve and work to create a world in which all women, children and youth thrive. United Methodist Women is celebrated as the women’s ministry of The United Methodist Church.

Senior Adults


We would like to invite anyone that is 50 and older (or if you are younger and just want to join us!) to join the Golden Hearts . We enjoy activities, trips and fellowship with one another. God has blessed us to be a happy, healthy, active and vibrant group that enjoys life. Please do not miss out on all the fun and fellowship. 

Scouting


Any boys interested in Scouting and the Troop are encouraged to visit us during one of our meetings. For more information, please contact the church office.

Prayers and Squares


Prayers & Squares is an interfaith outreach organization that combines the gift of prayer with the gift of a hand-tied quilt. The purpose of Prayers & Squares is to promote prayer through the use of quilts. Our motto is: "It's not about the quilt; it's all about the prayers."
