Care Ministry

We want to support you

At St. John Lutheran, lonely people find family. Broken people find healing and wholeness. And families find support to raise their families. 

If you need help, we want to provide you with support. We have a several groups for you to get connected with:


A Stephen minister is a member of our congregation who is trained to listen, care, encourage, pray, and walk alongside you during difficult times. It's confidential, free, and very helpful. Stephen ministers reach out with God's love to people who are hurting--both congregation members and nonmembers alike. If you are going through a tough time, emotionally or spiritually, struggling with a crisis in life, or simply feeling down, consider allowing a Stephen minister to help. Our Stephen ministers are there to care! 

"Bear one another's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ." Galatians 6:2
