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 2018-2019 theme: “Courageous Conversations” is timely, political and critical as we struggle to maintain relevant conversation covering a multitude of hot-button issues: ecology/pollution, social justice, racism, poverty, affordable housing, exploitation of women and children, and other pressing issues.
We will explore justice, and activism; and how to affect our our world, nation, state, and the Northfield community, stirring us to effective service and advocacy for our neighbors.
Our theme for this year is taken from the notion that unless we understand the issues from all sides, and learn to communicate with each other, we will not be effective mediums for change. Our spiritual roots are founded in our stories. God seeks to remind us to listen to everyone’s stories, to love freely, to communicate, and courageously delve into the difficult conversations.
