Stewardship is the lifelong task and responsibility held in common by all baptized Christians to use their own unique gifts, talents and personhood to build up the Kingdom of God.

St. John the Baptist is a community which helps us to realize our baptismal call by forming, supporting and nurturing us in a spirit of mutuality, for service both within and beyond our parish community. 

We hope that you, will be inspired by the numerous outreach programs and ministries at St. John's and that you will step forward as volunteer ministers to help our parish remain vital.  There are many ways to share your time and talents in service here at St. John's.  Click on the link(s) below to check out volunteer opportunities in that area.
