Ways to Get Involved

There is a class for everyone at St. John’s. All classes enthusiastically welcome guests and new members.

Aldersgate (Room 122) gathers as a group in an environment designed to build connection and spiritual growth among fellow members. This community is intentional in both personal relationships and studies, engaging in group discussions each week that focus on a variety of topics.

Animus – Koinonia (Room 227) members spend the first few minutes of class catching up with one another before discussing the lesson of the day. The class enjoys studying a wide variety of faith-based, spiritual, and religious topics, typically reading and discussing books, and occasionally incorporating podcasts. There’s no pressure, though! You are welcome whether you are following assignments or not! There’s always room for discussion and sharing, or feel free to just come and listen in. The class is ever-changing, and welcomes all ages and stages of life, from college-aged up. And if you have a baby who is not in the mood to visit the nursery, bring them too!

Shepherds (Room 116) is a group of all ages and backgrounds who invite others to join in the conversation. The class engages in a close study of Biblical texts and encourages the sharing of diverse viewpoints. For those prevented from in-person participation by distance or other circumstances, access via Zoom is made available. Founded by Ted Dotts, Shepherds Class aims to empower its members to live a blessed life.

The group meets to bead beautiful new Chrismons for St. John’s Christmas tree. No experience is necessary.

Knitters and crocheters make shawls, scarves, and other items to give to those needing comfort, to recognize important life events, to provide warmth for those in need, and to raise money for St. John’s benevolences.

The choir leads the congregation in worship during the 10:30 a.m. service each Sunday in addition to presenting a number of special programs throughout the academic year. Interested in joining our choir? Contact our Director of Music Ministries at a.zabriskie@stjohnslubbock.org
