Jan. 28 Evangelism Equipping Event


Join us at St. John’s on Saturday, Jan. 28 from 1:30 to 5 p.m. for the Evangelism Equipping Event! The purpose of this event is to equip local churches with theological and practical skills in reaching and making new disciples of Jesus Christ. Breakout sessions will cover evangelism to children, youth, young adults, and adults. A church-wide follow up with a study of “Meet the Goodpeople: Wesley’s 7 ways to share Faith,” will be the practical follow up for those churches that attend the workshop. The event costs $10 and is open to all. Rev. Troy Benton will keynote. The event is hosted through the Mississippi River District of the United Methodist Church.

Christianity & Social Justice


Join this new class on Mondays staring Jan. 23 at 6:30 p.m
. 
 

In a culture divided by politics, race, class and gender, Christians must recognize the Bible’s mandate to participate in social causes. As followers of Christ, we do a disservice to Christ, if we ignore the complex problems facing today’s society and forget that Jesus dedicated his life to helping the less-fortunate. As John Wesley said, “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can." This 6-week class will take on oppression within the legal system, education, housing, and employment in the St. Louis Metro Area. Saundra Hudson, who has vast experience in housing, healthcare and education, will be teaching the class. RSVP by contacting Tamra Coldren at 618-973-2324.
