Living in Community

It takes many hands. Everything from Worship, to Wednesday Night Suppers, to our vibrant programming for children, youth, and adults takes the work of many disciples. Here are just a few more ways you can be involved:

WEDNESDAY NIGHT SUPPER VOLUNTEERS

Our Wednesday Night Supper volunteer crew is in need of volunteers willing to help with dishes and cleanup. Volunteers would start between 5:30 - 6:00 p.m. and primarily wash pots and pans. This ministry has grown from 20-30 people to about 250 people fed each week throughout the school year! If you are interested in signing up for a shift contact the church office.  stjohn.sjumc@gmail.com or 344-3025.

PRAYER SHAWL


Do you know how to knit or crochet? Our prayer shawl ministry supply is running low. Both our pastoral staff and members regularly bring shawls to those in need of healing, prayer, and support. We'd love to have more shawls; you can bring them anytime during office hours. Thank you!

MEAL TRAIN

What is the Meal Train? When life throws curve balls, providing a meal is a great way for your friends to help you out. Providing a meal does not always mean delivering a ready-to-eat meal. For more info or to sign up to help click here!

WORSHIP AND ADMIN VOLUNTEERS

People like you extend hospitality to newcomers and long-timers by serving as ushers and greeters, and help to proclaim the gospel by volunteering to read, serve communion, or share a faith story. Fold bulletins, prepare mailings, answer phones in daytime hours. Let us know how you are called to serve. Contact the office to learn more.

Volunteer? No way. I’m too busy. That doesn’t interest me. If you would like to serve God but don’t know where or how, volunteer to assist with any kids group. It is a wonderful and amazing experience. I was hesitant to volunteer to assist with Biblemania. I’m so glad I said “Yes”. It is so much fun. All the different personalities and how they change in that hour. Even I change. Upon arrival of meeting, I’m tired & want to be home in my pajamas. When I leave I’m energized. What a great way to get over the winter blues and serve God at the same time. Volunteer!
