Stephen Ministry

Pastors will always be on the front lines of care, especially during times of crisis. But there are many more needs for ongoing, one-to-one care, than pastors can effectively meet by themselves. Stephen Ministry provides a biblical solution-equipping God’s people for ministry. Gifted lay people are trained to support and extend the care that pastors continue to provide. Stephen Ministers reach out with God’s love to people who are hurting, both congregation members and nonmembers alike. Our congregation’s Stephen Ministry equips lay people to provide one-to-one Christian care for individuals experiencing difficulties in their lives.
If you are interested in becoming a Stephen Minister or know someone who may benefit from meeting with a Stephen Minister, please contact Cindy Mead in the church office at 227-6391. All contacts are kept confidential.

St. John’s Quilters

The St. John’s Quilters meet every Thursday from 9am to 2pm. No experience is necessary. If you can iron or sew a straight line, you can quilt with us! We also have expert quilters for you to learn from. All of our quilts are donated to local organizations in need of blankets such as Assurance Pregnancy Center, Step by Step, Women’s Hope Center, and others. The quilts bring a lot of love, warmth, and hope to those who receive them.
Quilting offers a great social time! We always have lunch together and enjoy watching each other’s creations take shape. Occasionally the Quilters meet Thursday evenings.
For more information contact Cindy Mead, 277-6391, or Mary Prothe.
Thanks to our Quilters we are keeping Lexington warm, one quilt at a time!

Financial Peace by Dave Ramsey

Millions of people have gone through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (FPU) and learned God’s ways of handling money. They’ve worked a plan, rewritten their stories, and changed their futures. On average, FPU graduates pay off $5,300 in debt and save $2,700 in only the first 90 days! As a result, their giving increases by 30%!
FPU consists of a nine-week video curriculum taught by financial expert Dave Ramsey, and incorporates small group discussions that help encourage accountability and discipleship. Groups meet once a week for 90 minutes, and the course is just as fun as it is practical! Classes have been hosted by St. John’s in the past. For further information about getting a group together, contact Phil and Kim Campbell. (859-224-7079)
