Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministry offers a proven and effective way to organize, equip, and supervise a team of congregation members—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, one-to-one, Christ-centered care to people in the congregation and the community experiencing life difficulties.
Stephen Leaders are church staff, lay leaders, and pastors trained to provide ongoing leadership for their congregation’s Stephen Ministry. They are equipped for this key role through the Bridge Leader’s Training Course offered by Stephen Ministries St. Louis.

Stephen Ministers are congregation members trained by their Stephen Leaders to offer care to people who are hurting. A Stephen Minister typically has one care receiver at a time and meets with that person once a week for about an hour.

Care Receivers are individuals in the congregation or community who are going through a crisis or life difficulty. Potential care receivers first meet with a pastor or Stephen Leader, who assesses their needs for care, and matches them with a Stephen Minister. The caring relationship lasts for as long as the need persists.

If you or a loved one are interested in finding out more about receiving care or becoming a Stephen Minister, please contact Laurie Hamilton at, or call the church office at 303-733-3777.

Care Meals

Care Meals Ministry provides home-cooked meals to St. John’s members who are recuperating from surgery or childbirth or who need a meal after a death in the family.

If you need a Care Meal or want more more information about how you can join the Care Meals Ministry team, please contact Karen Haywood at or call 303-809-6284.

Homebound Care

The Homebound Care Ministry serves those who are unable to worship at church. Each month a volunteer from St. John's brings a devotion and the communion meal and then visits with the homebound individual. Greeting cards are sent at various times of the year and small gifts are taken to the people at Christmas and Easter. Both the callers and the homebound come away blessed by these visits!  
Caring Visits is a ministry where individuals at St. John's make friendly visits with some of the older people in our church community. Perhaps you would like to make these visits or maybe you know someone who would benefit from a friendly, caring visit. The group usually makes two visits a month or more as needed. If you are interested in making a difference in the life of an elderly person, let us know. You will be blessed as well!

Alcoholics Anonymous 

St. John's hosts an in-person, Saturday, 9:15am Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in our Community Room.

Alcoholics Anonymous® is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. • The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. • A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; neither endorses nor opposes any causes. • Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
