By:  Rev'd Dr. Johnny Jeffords

Over the next several months, the Pastor’s Adult Sunday School Class will focus on Methodism during a time of great ferment in the life of the denomination, as the Church seeks to find a way forward on how it shall or shall not be fully welcoming of our LGBTQI sisters and brothers.

Congregational Care

By:  The Clergy Team

Congregational Care is an important part of “watching over one another in love,” building relationships, and embodying the love of God to one another. It is a ministry of all Christians, lay and clergy, and is a part of our Wesleyan heritage.

We were never created to “go it alone.” We were designed to share life together.

After God’s Own Heart - The Paradox of David Summer Worship Series Begins June 17

By:  Rev'd Dr. Johnny Jeffords

Our Summer worship series is soon to begin and invites us to sit with one of the most compelling figures in the whole of Biblical literature, David, a man whom scriptures describes as one “after God’s own heart.”  We all know some of David’s story.  It’s very episodic.  No differently than any one of us can or should be defined by the best or worst thing we’ve done, neither can David.  Brought together our stories say more than just who we are, they bear witness to the ways God has been with us in them and through them.

Carrying the Fierce Urgency Forward: The Intersection of History and Future

By:  Rev'd Dr. Johnny Jeffords

For this Lent, our focus has been upon activating our faith as a deepening of our witness, both personal and corporate.  It is through the lens of the 50th anniversary of the death of Rev’d Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and his words, originally meant to confront and inspire, that we’ve been able to ground ourselves ever more deeply in the mission of justice. This justice, grounded deeply in a biblical faith, informs our path this Lenten season.

Lent 2018 - "The Fierce Urgency of Now"

By:  Rev'd Dr. Johnny Jeffords

“We are now faced with the fact that tomorrow is today. We are confronted with the fierce urgency of now. In this unfolding conundrum of life and history, there ‘is’ such a thing as being too late. This is no time for apathy or complacency. This is a time for vigorous and positive action.”  -- Rev’d Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Rev’d Dr. King spoke these words at the Riverside Church in New York City on April 4, 1967, one year to the day before he was murdered in Memphis. Driven by the inner voice rising in him, he spoke at a gathering of clergy and laity about the Vietnam War.

Here at St. John’s, we have three primary ways that we support children’s literacy.

A Lenten Offering "with Hope in Mind"

By:  Rev'd Mimi White

Lent is upon us, and with it comes the opportunity to practice a spiritual discipline: to repent, and/or fast/abstain from some habit. But did you know it can also be a time to take up a new habit or spiritual practice? The 40 days of Lent can be a commitment to participate in a charity, or offer help to a neighbor, learn about social justice, attend meetings or classes, anything to help us grow more like Christ, deepen our compassion, and put into practice the faith we proclaim.
