There are lots of ways to grow in faith. At St. John’s, we focus on four: small groups, “one and done” classes, leader training, and independent studies. You can join us in-person, virtually, or on-demand, according to your schedule and comfort level. In each study, you’ll find an opportunity to deepen your faith and foster authentic relationships with others. Let’s grow in faith. Together.
Small Group Studies
These studies provide you with the opportunity to engage in Bible study that is practical, thought provoking and applies to your everyday life. You'll also have the opportunity to connect with people interested in the same topics, see some familiar faces, and, hopefully, build new connections with folks from St. John's.
These groups are either offered online via zoom or in a hyrbid format.

Men’s Ministry at St. John’s provides time for men to fellowship and grow together, through our annual Pancake Breakfast, Beach Retreat, and Thursday morning Men’s Bible Study.
Men's Bible Study
Men’s Bible Study gathers Thursday mornings, 8-9 am at Trinity Oaks. The Bible study is led by Pastor Rhodes on the upcoming Sunday gospel.
The Academy at St. John’s is an initiative of Senior Seasons Ministry. The Academy schedule offers a variety of educational courses and activities in the areas of spiritual growth, community service, personal enrichment, healthy living, and FUN!
Academy includes morning and afternoon sessions. In the morning, we have Bible Study with Pastor Rhodes, and afternoon sessions include interesting speakers, field trips, and programs. Participants may take the morning and afternoon classes of their choice.
New in 2021 is a growing list of independent studies you can access at a time that’s convenient for you. Some of the classes are led by leaders at St. John’s. Others are led by carefully-selected teachers from throughout the country. Some will enjoy the challenge of completing a “St. John’s Certificate,” which you’ll receive after completing a certain number of independent studies. Others will be drawn to a single class that piques your interest. Join in when it’s right for you!
A core principle at St. John’s is to be a community of disciples who make disciples for Christ. Our disciple-making process takes seriously the shaping of servant-leaders for the sake of the community and church. Through training, mentoring, and cohort groups, we’re helping disciples claim their God-given giftedness and discern their role as a leader in God’s kingdom.
This ministry is currently on hold until in-person meeting resumes.
