St. John's Lutheran Church

Women's Group

Purpose:
As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit we commit ourselves to our callings and to Christian friendship.  We are engaged in ministry and action and the promotion of wholeness in the church, our society, and the world.

Membership:
All confirmed women of St. John's are members of the Women Of The Church (WOTC) and are encouraged to volunteer and to participate in various activities throughout the year.  There are two Circles which welcome those who wish to meeting monthly for fellowship, Bible study, stewardship, and service opportunities.

Shalom Circle - Meetings are held the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7pm.


Commitment to Missions:
For over thirty years, the WOTC has maintained a sponsorship for a missionary family to help spread the good news of Jesus.  In addition, we hold special fund raising activities to help support Blanket Sunday for Church World Service. Locally, the WOTC helps coordinate support for the See and Do Club and the Filling Home.
