One of the great joys of being in a community is what we can do together. Without a doubt, God has given each member of St. John’s many gifts and ways that each person can serve Him in everyday life.
We also have a wonderful opportunity to come together, as one body, and make an even greater impact for the Lord’s kingdom. St. John’s has different projects and events that seek to do just that: advance His kingdom. These may be projects that are done specifically at our church or they may be service opportunities to be accomplished in Stewartville or beyond. These are not long-term commitments. Rather, we are seeking people who are willing and interested in helping with a smaller task or project for a short period of time. These men and women then form a task force to accomplish their goal. Once done, that task force is disbanded! Please check back periodically for a list of new projects. Then, if you see something in which you would like to take part, please be sure to use the form below to offer your service. Thanks!
Current Task Forces
- Church Cleaning
It is time to give the church a good Spring Cleaning! So join us on Saturday, May 5 anytime between 8am and noon to tackle any of the jobs that will clean up the church and make it sparkle again! Bring your own cleaning supplies so we have enough for everyone. We will do windows and floors, pews and furniture, vacuuming, dusting and removing cobwebs. We will work in the sanctuary, narthex, balcony and bathrooms for sure, but also some in the fellowship hall and other lower level areas. Maybe some projects outside could be done, too! No need to sign-up, just show up!
- Vacation Bible School Staff
Members are needed to help with Vacation Bible School. The dates are Monday through Friday, July 16-20, 9 to 11:30am each day. VBS is for children in preschool through 8th grade. Teachers, classroom assistants, craft people and snack preparers are needed. We also need someone to lead the craft portion of our program as Suzette Rowen will not be able to help this year due to scheduling conflicts. Use the form below or talk to or email Pastor Fritsch or call the church office to offer your service in any of the areas. This is a great way to share the love of Christ with the children of our community.
- SALT Tutors
Step Ahead Learning and Tutoring (SALT) is a ministry of our congregation to provide after school tutoring to first and second grade students on Wednesdays during the school year. Each session runs from 3 to 5pm except on those day when the public schools have early dismissal, then SALT runs from 12:45 to 3pm. If you are interested in helping with the program, even on an “as available basis” as one who works with the first and second graders in the areas of reading, arithmetic and like subjects, please contact Pastor Steve for more information or use the form below to contact us.
- Audio/Visual Operators
Members are needed to help run the audio/visual equipment at worship services, funerals and weddings. Training is given. Once trained, members sign-up for the services at which they are able to assist.
At every worship service we need members to usher and greet the people who come. It is easy work, but most important. Most especially we need members who present a welcoming spirit. Those who offer to assist will be contacted by an elder to schedule specific Sundays and services times.
Use the contact form below to offer your assistance. Please check back regularly for more opportunities!
