Prayer Request

We can care for each other through the power of prayer. When we pray, we bear the burdens of our family, our brothers and our sisters, so we never suffer alone. If you’re struggling in any area, ask someone to pray for you.

Public Prayer list

St. John’s Prayer Team offers intercessory prayer for others. You can send confidential prayer requests or speak to one of the prayer team at Sunday Service. 

The Prayer of Faith James 5:13-16 

[13] Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise. [14] Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. [15] And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven. [16] Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working. (ESV) 

Pastoral Care

Lay Pastoral Care is a ministry that strives to make sure that everyone in our church family is cared for along life’s journey. We visit members at the hospital and in homes, prepare meals for members of the congregation who need them, and we provide transportation for medical appointments. We also host funeral receptions in the Parish Life Building, if that is the family’s wish. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve the members of St. John’s!
