Gardening Angels

If you like to dig in the dirt and visit with friends in Jesus, this ministry is for you! During the summer months we will have a number of gardening times during morning and evenings so can come when it works for you. We will garden at church for a short time, and then gather for a snack and beverage and share a devotion and our stories with each other. New women are always welcome to join. Reach out to Diane Hagelin for more information!

Women In Prayer

Wish you were praying more? Not sure where to begin? We want to intentionally provide opportunities to gather and pray. Join with fellow women to share in conversations and to pray with and for each other. The group meets in person quarterly. We will begin with a short devotional and then break into small groups for prayer. The group also prays together virtually more frequently. Download the app here to join us  New women are always welcome to join. Reach out to Vicki Koglmeier for more information. 

If: Local Gathering

We desperately want to stay faithful in these times, but we know we can't muster up the faith all on our own. IF:Local is a gathering of women committed to discipleship who gather across denominations, generations and cultures to be in the Word and worship together. IF:Local is being a part of a sisterhood of women who are willing to step out in faith because there's not better than women experiencing the love of Jesus. If you have any questions, please reach out to Nicole Wagner or  Vicki Koglmeier.

Women'S Retreat

Each fall, the women of St. John's head to the Holiday Valley Resort in Ellicottville for a weekend of fun, relaxation, learning, connection and growth. Save the date for our 2024 retreat on October 18-20th. More information to come.

Advent by Candlelight

This special annual event is a chance for all women from the St. John’s community (and beyond) to fix their eyes on Jesus together in an evening of worship, growth, and celebrating the coming King. Ladies can host a table for friends and family, or just come as you are and we’ll partner you with some new friends.
