Centered on God's Word. Connected with one another.  Challenged to grow in faith.

God’s Word tells us that we are to lead transformed lives.  This transformation is a life-long process that we don’t tackle in our own strength.  Jesus prayed this in John 17:  “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.”  As we read, study and live by God’s Word, He changes us and grows us into the women that He has called us to be.  We also don’t tackle this sanctification process alone.  In Jude 3, we’re reminded that the church is where believers gather to assure one another that this faith that we profess is real and enduring.  We live out the truth of the gospel together, not in isolation. 

            So how can we, as women, seek to lead connected, transformed lives at St. John?  Women’s ministry exists to point women of all ages to our faithful Savior, Jesus Christ, through a variety of opportunities:

From time to time, we offer opportunities where women can connect and form deep and lasting relationships with the Lord and with each other.  Through retreats, seminars and special events, we seek to learn how to care for one another, bear one another’s burdens (Galatians 6:2) and learn what Christian love really is (John 13:35).


We will be offering book groups for women who would like additional opportunities to grow in Christ. 


Lisa is available to listen and pray with women, keeping the goal of seeking God’s wisdom and growing in His grace firmly in mind. Feel free to contact her.
