ORGANIZATIONS OF OUR CONGREGATION

All of our organizations are open to all, both our members and those who are not. Our members are urged to join and participate in those they think most suitable to their interests and needs. We encourage friends, guests, and others to participate in our organizations, as a way to get to know better both our Lord Jesus and the people and work of St. John's.
