Christian Involvement & Small Groups

Christian Involvement at St. John's is participation in the FAMILY life of the congregation.  Involvement with intergenerational events introduces you to the children, the young adults, the singles, the couples, the retirees.  It is through the intergenerational events that you experience the "family-life" of our congregation.  Your friendships with others will deepen through involvement in small groups. The common interests within a small group are the beginning of many friendships within our congregation.

The Christian Involvement Team facilitates involvement of our members

  1. by promoting congregational togetherness and a feeling of community;

  2. by providing opportunities for interpersonal relationships within the congregation through small groups and through all-congregational events (multi-generational).

 The Christian Involvement Team meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 6:00 pm at various restaurants.
