Fellowship Groups

FRIENDS N FAITH

Friends N Faith Groups at St. John Lutheran are small groups within the congregation, formed each January, for the purpose of helping members get to know fellow members and develop friendships out of this community of faith. The groups are centered around various activities that define each group but all are meant to:

  • Help members know one another and foster friendships between members in Christian fellowship
  • Provide a specific group to whom each participant becomes a primary minister to fellow members of the group, caring for and encouraging one another in their faith journey
  • Provide the context for the group to provide service and ministry beyond the group
