United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).
Several opportunities for spiritual growth are offered at Johnson Memorial -- more than we can list on this page! But here are a few that you might want to try.
We have a weekly prayer list that is distributed via email and paper copy. If you would like to add a concern to the list or if you would like to receive the weekly list, contact Gloria Peek. Annually, we as a church participate in a 40-hour Prayer Vigil from the afternoon of Good Friday to sunrise on Easter. Go to this link to read more about it and to "claim your hour."
The members of Johnson Memorial write devotionals -- daily through Advent, Christmas and Epiphany as well as during Lent and weekly the rest of the year. These are distributed via email and paper copy. To read more about this ministry, and to read our past devotionals, go to this link. If you would like to receive the devotional, send your email address to JMAdvent@yahoo.com. We are always looking for writers as well, so please let Kim Matthews know if you would like to write a devotional.
Growth through Study
JM's weekly schedule is full of opportunities to meet together as a community to study God's Word and to reflect on life as a Christian. Sunday school, evening classes, Andrew's Brothers, and many other adult ministries are terrific ways to grow closer to God.
Johnson Memorial has an Emmaus community of approximately 30 members. The Walk to Emmaus, a three-day experience, takes a New Testament look at Christianity as a lifestyle. The highly structured weekend is designed to strengthen and invigorate the faith of Christian people and, through them, their families, their congregations, and the world in which they live. Emmaus combines the efforts of laity and clergy to renew the church. Transformed by their experiences on the Walk to Emmaus, people look for ways to serve God through their local church and through the Emmaus Community. Four reunion groups -- small groups of Emmaus community members which meet together to support each other on our Christian walk -- gather at JM.
Who are we? The Vision of Johnson Memorial United Methodist Church is to be a covenant community transformed by God’s grace to share the love of Christ with the world.
What do we do? The Mission of Johnson Memorial United Methodist Church is to bring others to Christ, embrace them with love, nurture everyone in faith, worship God joyfully, and reach out in service to the world.
