"There are different kinds of gifts, but the same spirit distributes them."

1 Corinthians 12:4

What gifts do you have that God has given you to help serve others? How can you connect and contribute in a meaningful way to the life of St. John's UMC? Take the Spiritual Gifts Inventory to find out what spiritual gifts you have and how they could be useful to various ministries at St. John's. 

"He sat down, called the Twelve, and said to them, 'Whoever wants to be first must be least of all and the servant of all.'" Mark 9:35

St. John’s UMC is a missional church, which means that we take seriously the call of Jesus to serve the needs of our hurting world. We are actively engaged in several local and regional ministries throughout the year, as well as taking adults and youth on mission trips to rebuild areas devastated by natural disasters or endemic poverty. Take a look at some of our ongoing projects listed here and consider where God is calling YOU to serve - or contact the church if you have questions about our ongoing projects, or a new vision for ministry that you would like to discuss and share with others.
