Lectionary Bible Study
We meet each Monday at 6:00 p.m. to sift through the scripture passages for the upcoming Sunday sermon. You will gain a deeper understanding of the Word and Lutheran theology as Pastor Douglas teaches the class. This is a wonderful way to dive into the Scriptures before hearing the sermon.
Congregational Prayer Group
They Raised Their Voices Together in Prayer to God. (Acts 4:24)
Throughout the Book of Acts we read how amazing healings, conversions, rescues and testimonies happen for the Church. These miracles of THE Spirit happen because the people of Jesus relied upon prayer.
We are recruiting people to join together to ask the LORD to empower the ministry of St. John’s.
We are praying the Holy Spirit would move us to love Jesus Christ more dearly. We are praying to see the Holy Spirit working powerfully among us and through us to bring the Kingdom of God to others.
· Monday mornings at 9 am., 75 to 90 minutes of scripture study and prayer, to pray for every single person associated with this church, to pray for the ministry of this church, for the welfare of our community and country, and we pray for ourselves.
· Do not have to be an expert in prayer or scripture. Must have a willingness to grow in faith. Must have a willingness to learn how to pray. Do not have to be there every Monday.
If you would like to inquire about the prayer group, please contact Pastor Douglas
St. John’s will be hosting a CPR class on Thursday, April 29 from 6:00-8:30 p.m. This will be for those who need to recertify, and for those who want to become certified. This is open for anyone thirteen and older. Please contact the church office to reserve your spot.
Friday Morning Women’s Bible Study
The Friday Morning Women’s Bible Study meets every Friday at 9:00 a.m. All women are welcome to join!
Young Adult Bible Study
All young adults are invited to join us every first, second, and third Mondays from 6:30-7:30 p.m. for time in the Word and how it relates to your life. Our current study is Faith: Living a Spiritual Life.
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 “Our Daily Bread” 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.
