JUMP stands for Just Unique Middle-aged People.

JUMP is a group for people in their 40s and 50s to participate in social and community service events.  It is a great opportunity to make friends and live the Christian life.  The group meets as opportunity arises and as members offer to host/organize an event.

If you would like to be added to the email list for notice of future JUMP events please contact Janelle at secretary@stjohnsandweecare.org.

Upcoming Events:
