As a community of women created in the image of God, called to discipleship in Jesus Christ, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves to grow in faith, affirm our gifts, support one another in our callings, engage in ministry and action, and promote healing and wholeness in the church, the society, and the world.
St. John's Women
Our 2019-2020 programming will add “Bold Actions” to “Courageous Conversations,” as it is critical to act boldly regarding these and other pressing issues.
We will explore ways to actively work for justice, and advocate for neighbors in our community, our state, our nation, and our world.
Our theme for this year is taken from the WELCA mission: “Mobilizing women (AND men) to act boldly on their faith.” God desires for us to listen to everyone’s stories, to love freely, to communicate effectively, and to courageously be God’s hands, feet, and voice.

“Healing and Reparations from an Indigenous Perspective”
Jim Bear Jacobs, Minnesota Council of Churches Director of Community Engagement and Racial Justice, will speak on Healing and Reparations from an Indigenous perspective. In our conversation we will discuss how a church can wrestle with questions of reparations, and what justice might look like as it relates to our Native American neighbors.
