There's much to like about St. John's and our service to the Lord. Below are a small sampling of our many ministries.
Holy Communion - The Lord's Supper
The Holy Communion represents the greatest expression of God’s love for His people. Two items are used in the Holy Communion—the bread which is Jesus’ body that was scourged and broken before and during His crucifixion, and the cup which is His shed blood.
All baptized believers, including guests, are invited to receive communion.
Men & Women's Groups
St. John's maintains active Men's and Women's Groups which meet regularly for both social events and community service.These groups support several events each year including traditional dinners, Fausnacht festival, Rummage Sale, and Chicken BBQ. Come out and be surprised by the friendliness of our members.
Sunday School is held at 10:30AM right after our 9:30AM service. All age groups are invited.
