There are many opportunities for adults to be involved at St. John.  A variety of classes are offered to encourage everyone to grow in their faith - individually or as a couple.

 If you are a person who wishes to serve in a group or individually,  Visit the Serving Opportunities to be a part of worship or a small group that puts their hand and feet to work to assist others in the community and beyond.

Wherever your interests may be, St. John encourages everyone to take part in something to become an active part of the church family

Adult Class

There are a variety of adult groups that gather to learn and grow in their faith, and their knowledge of history and the bible.  Everyone is welcome at these groups - they are not only for members, or for Lutherans!  Unless the Adult group is a specific class for a specific purpose (such as the Financial class), classes are all "walk-in" sessions - you can come and go as you wish. 

 

 _________ Learning in Service to Christ (Adult Ed) _________

Sundays @ 10:30 am as scheduled

 

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!

 

                

W-ELCA

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

 

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.

get out of your head"Get Out of Your Head" - Stopping the Spiral of Toxic Thoughts

by Jennie Allen

 

Participants can order their book using the link above. The church will provide the accompanying workbook.

 

"Are your thoughts holding you captive? I’ll never be good enough. Other people have better lives than I do. God couldn’t really love me. Jennie Allen knows what it’s like to swirl in a spiral of destructive thoughts, but she also knows we don’t have to stay stuck in toxic thinking patterns.


As she discovered in her own life, God built a way for us to escape that downward spiral. Freedom comes when we refuse to be victims to our thoughts and realize we have already been equipped with power from God to fight and win the war for our minds.
 
In Get Out of Your Head, Jennie inspires and equips us to transform our emotions, our outlook, and even our circumstances by taking control of our thoughts. Our enemy is determined to get in our heads to make us feel helpless, overwhelmed, and incapable of making a difference for the kingdom of God. But when we submit our minds to Christ, the promises and goodness of God flood our lives in remarkable ways.
 
It starts in your head. And from there, the possibilities are endless"
