Congregational Care Ministry

Our Congregational Care Ministry is made of many different care teams. Each team has its own mission and purpose as stated below. If you feel called into one of these ministries or are in need of their assistance, please contact the person named below or our Congregational Care Coordinator, Carolyn Henry.

  • St. John's Prayer Team

    Visit our prayer page for prayer list and all information on our prayer ministry.

  • Prayer Shawl Ministry

    This ministry symbolizes God's love and healing presence. This ministry includes individuals who enjoy crocheting and knitting shawls and afghans. These items are made to be given to members of the church and their extended families who find warmth and comfort through these gifts. When there is a request made of someone in need of comfort, a shawl is taken to them or given to the individual making the request.

    To request a prayer shawl or to become involved in this loving ministry, contact Nancy Bewley or Dorothy Newcomb.

  • Friends by Faith

    This ministry's purpose is to ensure that all members who, for whatever reason, are confined to home or other facility, receive a call or a friendly visit to remind them that they are valued members of St. John's United Methodist Church.

    For more information or to join our Friends by Faith ministry, contact our Congregational Care Coordinator, Carolyn Henry.

  • Stephen Ministry

    This ministry is a program for our congregation that equips lay persons to provide distinctively Christian one-on-one care to those who are experiencing difficult life circumstances, both in the congregation and the community.

    Stephen Ministry is a confidential ministry, so all aspects of the caring relationship remain private. For more information or to request a Stephen Minister, contact Carrie Godward, Judy Conner, or Dayne Carlson. You may also visit the Stephen Ministry website for more information.

    This ministry cares for the families who have lost a loved one during this time to ease their loss. For more information or to join the Bereavement Team, Contact Linda Lindell.
