Serving - the Jesus Way

At St. John, we take our cues for serving others from Jesus Christ. Jesus puts the stamp of joy on the whole idea of sharing life. He is the one who, in a single sentence, sums up the value of being available to others: "I came not to be served, but to serve" (Matthew 20:28).

The opportunities for you to serve others and express your faith are more than anyone can count. There's a place for you to serve at St. John. Long-term membership is not a prerequisite for serving. Simply bring your fresh ideas, energy and enthusiasm. Keep your eyes open. Daily you will notice ways to extend a helping hand to your neighbor next door, around the block, or through countless St. John channels.
