Missions

"But you will receive the power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be my witnesses, in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the Ends of the Earth." Acts 1:8

St. John's has a passion for missions.  We strive to:

Share the gospel of Jesus Christ with all creation. (Mark 16:15)
Pray for our Missions and Missionaries (Acts 6:4)
Equip our people to do the work of ministry (Ephesians 4:12)
Involve our members in Missions (1 Corinthians 12:27)
Generously provide support to serve others (Philippians 2:4)

Mission Impact Celebration – January 27 – 29, 2017

Each year in January, the MLT put together a church-wide event called the Missions Impact Celebration (MIC). This is usually a 3 day event where several of our international, regional, and local mission partners come back together at St. John's and we celebrate the work they are doing. In past years, we have had a big kick off dinner to start the celebration and opportunities to have small group dinners with the missionaries. The Sunday of MIC, missionaries play a key role in the worship service and Sunday school. This is a chance to see what our dollars are working for and the amazing work these people are doing by spreading God's love. The next MIC is scheduled for January 27-29, 2017. You are welcome to participate in any way!
