This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth." -- 1 Timothy 2:3-4
God's desire is that all people would know the saving grace of Jesus Christ and be empowered to live lives of great faithfulness. That's why St. John the Divine exists. Our call is to help all people connect to Jesus in ways that change their world for good.
In 2019, we will continue the meaningful ministries of our church. As God provides additional resources, we will increase our focus on four key areas.
Our vision is to:
- More intentionally connect our people to God and one another.
- More creatively teach the faith in ways that grow our relationship with Jesus Christ.
- More deeply invest in forming faith in our children and youth.
- More strategically engage our people to change the world for good.
These four areas of focus are the result of prayerful discernment by the leaders of our congregation. We are called to continue Changing Lives for God in Christ in each of these areas - and we can only do this with your help.
Will you prayerfully consider giving more of your time, your talent, and your treasure to make St. John the Divine stronger and more impactful for the sake of the kingdom?
