Ways to Get Involved

– Try out a Sunday School class. We have 5 adult classes to choose from. Any of them would be happy to have you visit or join. Simply ask an usher or staff member on Sunday and they will direct you to a class. Feel free to try them all before deciding which one fits you best.

– Volunteer for events within the church. Inquire about current needs by contacting the church office. We’re always needing more volunteers!

– Check out a group! From United Methodist Women to quilting to singing, there’s something for everyone.

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.

Church members prepare and deliver twelve gift bags to the homebound members of the church.

St. John’s United Methodist Women’s mission is to turn faith, hope, and love into action through fostering spiritual growth, developing leaders, and advocating for justice on behalf of women, children and youth around the world. General membership meetings are brown-bag lunches at 11:30 a.m. on the second Saturday of each month.  The Dorothy Manning Circle meets the 4th Thursday of each month, except December, for fellowship and dinner at local restaurants.

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. This fun group meets at 6:30 p.m. every Wednesday evening.

This group quilts for pleasure, fellowship, and support of the benevolence fund at St. John’s. They meet faithfully each Thursday at 9:30 a.m. in Room 114.

The group meets weekly on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 p.m. to bead beautiful new Chrismons for St. John’s Christmas tree. No experience is necessary.

Starting in the 1980’s, St. John’s has hosted one of the nation’s longest continuous monthly dialogues for people from multiple faith perspectives.  Lubbock Interfaith Dialogue meets for a brown-bag lunch from 12:00 to 1:00 on the 2nd Thursday of each month, during which participants hear presentations and dialogue on topics which the group has chosen to consider.

St. John’s offers specialized studies based on the scriptures and themes of the Advent and Lenten seasons. Classes are offered as options for adults during the Sunday School hour for the number of weeks of each season.
