40 Days of Community!

TOGETHER St. John is taking a 40 Day Journey…    

You are invited!

Community in Christ, Christ in Community ACTIVE IN LOVE! is the theme for our new capital campaign to pay down debt and enhance our ministries together, and central to this is for everyone to join in a forty day journey of study, devotion, small group ministry and service.

  1. To help guide our Lenten discipline this year we would like each of you to consider joining us in daily devotion.  Therefore, every member (or couple, if you’d like to share) will be provided with the devotional book “40 days of Community” to read daily as we enter into Lent.     (books can be picked up in the window lobby)
  2. As you grab your devotional book we hope you will consider signing up to be a part of one of the many small groups that will be meeting in homes, or here at St. John on various days during the week to deeper engage in how God calls us to be ACTIVE IN LOVE  through community.  These small groups will meet once a week during Lent for roughly an hour and a half to explore how God calls us to be a Community for the sake of the world.  This small group ministry will conclude with an opportunity for service during or sometime after the week following Easter.  This is an especially great time to join a small group if you never have before.  These groups will be non-threatening, easy to participate in at your own pace and comfort-level, and yet very meaningful and important to your faith.
  3. Finally we hope you will consider joining us on Sunday mornings during the month of March for our Adult forums which will explore our calling to be Community in Christ, Christ in Community ACTIVE IN LOVE!

Thank you for being a part of this Community of Christ here at St. John we hope you will join us on this journey of faith and fellowship as we seek to share Christ in our Community,  ACTIVE IN LOVE!   Remember to get your 40 Days Devotional book and to check out one of our Small Groups!
