St. John Lutheran Church offers many adult small group opportunities. To learn more, please contact the church office.

Small group ministries are a vital part of keeping people connected and St. John offers many small group events during the course of the year. We have small groups that gather weekly for bible studies on Wednesday and Thursday mornings. We also have a number of book clubs that meet both monthly and for 4-6 sessions to read books focusing on a particular theme. We have small groups that meet in between services for a time of prayer fellowship and small groups that meet off site at Sr. living centers in the fall and spring of the year for bible study and fellowship. If you are interested in being a part of one of these (or other small group ministries at St. John) please let us know and we will get you plugged in as quickly as possible.
