SAFE Church training will help you to develop appropriate teaching, caring and mentoring relationships which are based in trust and the promises that we make in the Baptismal Covenant. This training will prepare you so that you can create relationships and environments where you can Make, Equip, and Send Mature Disciples. Training is complimentary for St. John’s Parish Members and especially being held for those who are volunteering with Family Promise at St. John’s.

Family Promise is a national, non-profit initiative founded in 1986. With affiliates in more than 180 US cities, Family Promise brings the faith community together to help families regain their housing, their independence, and their dignity. It offers opportunities for volunteers of all faiths to reduce homelessness and transform lives. St. John's is an affiliate church of Family Promise of the Midlands. As an affiliate, we will host our first family Sunday, February 1 through Sunday, February 8.
We have a new family ministry at St. John's that we're very excited about. It's called "Rising Knights" and it's an amazing new values-based Sword Art program designed to develop the spiritual life of our youth (boys and girls ages 5-18+) using traditional sword arts. Meets on Fridays from 5:30-6:30 pm in the Barr Center Gym.
Participants will have the opportunity to explore our beliefs, traditions, and ministries. Your questions are welcome here. Most of all, you’ll have the chance to get to know other inquirers in a warm, informal setting. (This class is open to adult new-comers who may be interested in membership, and also to any long time adult members who would like a “re-tread” on their faith.)
Upcoming Fall Classes: Sat, Jan 10th, Sat, Jan 24th, Sat, Feb 7th
