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.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic all events of the JOY group are on hold until further notice.

The JUMP Group has been supportive of the Ronald McDonald House, supplying and preparing meals for the guests a number of times.  Now because of the pandemic, those opportunities have been curtailed.  However, you are invited to consider donating individual gift cards ($20 value) to one or more of the following nearby restaurants:

  • McDonald’s
  • Canadian Honker
  • Pasquale’s Neighborhood Pizzeria
  • Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches
  • Toppers Pizza

Please contact Janelle at secretary@stjohnsandweecare.org if you are interested in purchasing a gift card.
