Experience Jesus through faith-filled relationships.

Adults at all stages of their life’s journey are invited to connect with one another to strengthen relationships with each other, apply faith to daily life, and serve Christ together in the local and global community.  Whatever your age, gender or marital status, you will find great activities, classes and events aimed at supporting your desire to grow in your faith and connect with others at St. John.

H.I.S. Wiseguyz is our Men's Mission but includes activities for the family and friends to share in the blessings of fun and fellowship.  Wiseguyz offers a variety of ways to get together, but it isn't about the venue or the activity -- it's simply bringing men together, learning from each other, and having a good time all while strengthening community.  Previous events include a "Breakfast with Jesus" featuring barbequed fish as well as traditional breakfast fare; baseball games; and more!
