Relate    Elders

The Board of Elders at St. John assists the Pastor in caring for the spiritual needs of the members of the congregation.  Currently, nine elders serve at St. John, and each elder is responsible for several family units.  Elders contact, visit, and pray with members as needed.

Members with concerns, needs, or questions are encouraged to contact their elder; if that elder is not available, any other church elder can be called .  The Elders are an alternative contact in place of the pastor.  If the Pastor is not available, an elder can and should be contacted for spiritual needs.

In cases of emergency, the church office will contact key church leaders, including the member’s elder.  

Elders are responsible for the worship service and also help the pastor serve communion.

Elders are assigned by number; elder assignment numbers are on the church family mailboxes.
