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.

The JUMP Group will prepare and serve a pasta bar dinner at the Ronald McDonald House in Rochester on Monday, April 20 from 4-8pm. Up to 8 people are needed to help at the site but others can donate ingredients for the meal.  If you are interested in helping, contact Janelle Fistler at secretary@stjohnsandweecare.org  Thank you!

Also, we thank those who prepared and served dinner at the Ronald McDonald House on Tuesday, February 18.  Those who served included: Kim Feine, Aaron & Janelle Fistler, Bruce & Kay Narveson and Paul & Sue Smith.  And thank you to Pete & Tara Wernimont and Arleen Shaw who purchased food.
