St. John’s is a really big place. In order to care well for each other, we strive to be a place where God’s people care for God’s people.
Carefully selected and trained lay volunteers work alongside staff in a variety of roles.

The first step in joining many of these teams is to attend our Care Ministry Training, offered four times a year. This group is also perfect for those not sure yet about how they would like to serve.
