Our  Youth/Young Adult Director, Melanie Crapser, holds “Link” video chats  a couple of times a month to keep in touch with our college age young adults who are either away at school or are keeping a busy schedule juggling school, work, family, etc. These are  on Wednesday evenings with a brief devotion and a short time to connect and catch up.  We hope this will be a great tool to help this group stay grounded in their faith. Contact Melanie if you’d like to be connected.

Daily Devotions Options

Daily devotions and spending time listening and talking with God is imperative not only for encouragement to face each day, but also to continue to grow in your faith.  There are many devotional ideas to consider. Here at St. John’s, we have the Christ in Our Home daily devotional booklets available in regular and large print form.  Ask an usher and they can get one for you.  Also, for those who have a smart phone, there is a free app called “Our Daily Bread Ministries” (ODB.org) that you can download. This is a great, convenient way to begin each day.  We encourage you to pass this information to your family and friends, especially to those who may be away at school or on the road and do not have access to a written form of devotion.  This message is from the Worship Committee who want to support you in your personal journey and inspire you to spend time with the Lord every day.
