Ministries of St. John’s
Our Prayer Shawl Ministry is a combination of prayers and knitting (or crocheting) for the ministry to others. We strive to bring God’s love to folks in need through the comfort and warmth of our handmade shawls. We usually meet the first Wednesday evening of each month and welcome anyone that would like to help us make shawls. For more information about our Prayer Shawl Ministry or to request a shawl for someone in need of comfort or encouragement, please contact Wanda Gregg at 717-278-5571.
St. John’s is a praying church and we would love to pray for you or your loved ones. If you have a prayer request, please contact Glenda Worst at 717-690-5444. Glenda will contact people on our prayer chain and we will all pray for your specific need.
Music Ministry at St. John’s focuses on worshiping with congregational singing of both hymns and praise songs. Traditional music, with emphasis on hymns of faith over many centuries and cultures, declares praise and affirms our faith. Organ and piano give accompaniment, preludes, offertories, postludes, and other service music. The choir rehearses weekly and sings for worship three times per month, September through early June. Special music from soloists is welcome anytime. Occasionally, the children sing for the congregation songs they have learned during their worship time. St. John’s is a singing congregation, as directed by John Wesley.
