“Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us exercise them: . . . if ministry, in ministering; if one is a teacher, in teaching; if one exhorts, in exhortation; if one contributes, in generosity; . . . if one does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.”
We have been blessed to serve alongside so many gifted people and we firmly believe in the Church as a body with many parts! If you are on this page it is likely that you have felt the tug to 'give of your firstfruits' in a new or different way.
Service for God is not one we are shamed or forced into. The Father desires that we freely choose for it. This choice ultimately stems from the great joy of being seen and known by Him. One of which is so exciting and overwhelming that we have to share it.

1. Sunday School (PreK-K)
4. SJN MOMS Ministry
SEEKING a wonderful and gentle kid-loving group of adult parishioners and friends to help support the SJN MOMS Ministry. Beginning Sept. 21, we will meet two Tuesdays a month from 9:30-11:30 am and assist each other in finding balance, joy, and happiness by helping each other encounter Jesus and deepen our relationship with Him. Sharing your gift of time – caring for and interacting with our young children, ages 1-5 – will not only help us take time to grow in our faith but also may benefit you in many ways! You will be making a difference for our group. We hope to have four people during each meeting.
