What is WELCA? It’s an easy way to say

Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

Quite a mouthful, we know. This organization includes Lutheran women who gather in more than 7,000 locations in the U.S. and the Caribbean, for service, study, advocacy, fellowship and more! WELCA embraces all kinds of ministries that support our mission of mobilizing women to act boldly on their faith in Jesus Christ.

 

welcaPurpose of WELCA:   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 grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.

Couples

 

Reclaiming Joy   

reclaiming joy

 

   Let's be honest ~

      no matter how long you've  been married,

         not every moment is joyful.

 

 

These marriage enrichment evenings aim to

  • build community among people in all seasons of marriage who want to enrich their marriage in the name of Jesus,
  • provide a few simple tools to practice at home to keep the marriage healthy, and
  • create small groups for ongoing marriage enrichment.

 YES! I am interested!

Classes for the current year have not yet been determined. Please email Pastor Lisa and let her know that your are interested. Registration forms will be available when dates/locations have been set for these fun conversational evenings.

 

 

Married4Life

Married4Life is an opportunity for you to intentionally care for something we often hope will take care of itself:

                                                                OUR MARRIAGE

          In this small group ministry, couples gather monthly with other couples

to care for your relationship in a time frame designed specifically

for the two of you with no distractions.

 

 

Marriage Care is…

* An informal, conversational meeting with other couples.

* The chance to enrich your relationship and grow in your marriage.

* A time to express what you value about each other and what sometimes makes you stumble.

 

Marriage Care is not

             * A substitute for therapy

             * In-depth Training

             * Just another social group

 

Interested in being a part of this group? Contact the church office at 701-225-6747. 

                                                                                                    

Marriage Care is a ministry developed by Bill and Anita Smith at Luther Seminary, and is used by several congregations as well as seminary students and spouses.

 

Adult Education

Learning in Service to Christ ~

Throughout the school year, an Adult Education class is held on  a variety of topics. Occasionally there is a speaker from the community or from a ministry outside of Dickinson. This is also a time for Adult Bible Study or a deeper look at the gospel reading for that day.

 

This group is attended by men and women of varying ages. You can come for one session, or several – it is a “walk-in” class. Everyone is welcome in the Fellowship Room on the main floor of the church building for this interesting and informal group! The coffee and tea are always hot ~ and we occasionally enjoy homemade treats!

 

~ This class will not be meeting in Fall 2020. Watch for details on alternative Adult Education opportunities! ~

 

 Bible Studies ~

The St. John Men’s Breakfast Bible Study meets each week at Perkins on Friday mornings at 6:30 am. Men of all ages are encouraged to drop in. Check the church calendar for any changes to this schedule. This informal group has a great time sharing a meal, discussing topics and growing deeper in their faith as they study the bible.

 

Several small groups of ladies gather on a monthly basis to grow deeper in their faith as they dig into different topics in the Bible and enjoy fellowship together. If you are interested in joining a group, please contact the church office to get more information about these groups and when they meet.

 

Theology on Tap ~

 It's no secret that Martin Luther enjoyed a pint or two with his friends. As he ate and drank with his friends in Wittenberg, Luthr had many conversations about God, life, the Bible and faith. Theology on Tap is inspired by the founders of our faith. This informal group meets monthly (last Tuesday of the month @ 7:00 pm) to have conversations on various topics such as "God in Sports", "Decoding Denominations", and "Angels". Various venues are utilized in Dickinson, and it is not exclusive to Lutherans. Everyone is welcome for this fun and enlightening discussion.

Trips

 

We learn about the stories in the bible in many different ways. We read the stories, we watch videos, documentaries and movies, and we can visit the places where these stories took place. For those that enjoy the latter of these methods, we have news for you!

 

LET'S VISIT ISRAEL!

 

israel

  A small group from St. John went to Israel for an eight-day tour in

  November 2019, where they experienced the places where Jesus and his

  disciples began their mission. Some  highlights of the tour included: Mount Carmel,

  Cruise on the Sea of Galilee, site of the feeding of the 5,000, & the Jordan River.

 

 

Watch for more travel opportunities in the future!
