St. John's Women

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 function through gifts, donations, and the hard work of our knitters, crafters, and volunteers. If you would like to make a donation, you can do so, with PayPal, or by check. If you donate through PayPal, please send an email to and give us your name, the amount, and where you would like the money to be allocated (General Fund, Knitters, Quilters, Courageous Conversations, etc.)

We thank you, ahead of time, for your gifts.



When the WELCA executive board met (via ZOOM) in early May, there was collective agreement that we could, and should, continue to push forward with Courageous Conversations on ZOOM, and that, as COVID-19 was shining a light on racial disparities in our communities, we should take a closer look at ways to address racism. Little did we know, then, that within days, we would all witness the brutality and senseless murder of George Floyd at the hands of the police right here in Minnesota, and that this would ignite an ever growing outcry across the country and beyond.

So in the midst of an ever changing landscape we are forging ahead with our commitment to provide a platform for understanding systemic racism and promoting anti-racist actions.
