Senior ministries

While most ministries at St. John’s are intergenerational, we love being able to provide fellowship, growth, and Bible study opportunities to the retired community and those who are 55+. Below are a few examples of the activities and ministries our older adults enjoy. 

Monday bible class

This robust group meets Mondays at 12:00pm in the community room for a time of fellowship and Bible study. Content varies from rigorous Bible study to watching The Chosen videos together, based on the season. If you have any questions, reach out to Pastor Mike at

Monthly Potlucks

Join us monthly on the third Wednesdays of each month at noon in the fellowship hall. Bring a dish to pass and share in delicious, food fellowship and conversation.
