How Can I Get Involved?
Matthew 28:19-20
Jesus told us to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads throughout our state, country, and to every nation. At St. John’s we are given the opportunity to worship God, study His Word, and serve Him in many capacities, while at the same time enjoying Christian fellowship. Discover the opportunities offered and find the places where you fit in!
