Kerygma Bible Study
Kerygma is a Greek word which originally meant proclamation or announcement. The early Christian Church added a layer of meaning to this word by using it to indicate the content of the message as announced by the Church.
Through a process of reading, reflection, discussion (lots of that), creative expression, Kerygma provides an opportunity for both the first time learner and lifelong student to deepen their knowledge and appreciation of the Bible.
The Kerygma group meets every Tuesday morning at 9:30 AM. Please join us.

Bible Study
At St John’s we also offer short-term Bible Studies with a duration of 3 to 5 weeks depending on the topic.
Our evening Bible studies are customarily set around a meal. When it’s the “full meal deal”,  we start at 6:30PM. If it’s not a full meal, you will be guaranteed a delicious dessert. When it’s the “dessert only deal”, we gather at 7:00PM. It seems that Jesus spent a lot of time at table “eating and drinking” to borrow the Gospel phrasing. At St John’s, we are pretty good at imitating Jesus on that front… yes; we are working on imitating Jesus on other fronts.

Currently we are hosting a men’s Breakfast Bible Study, Thursday mornings at 9:00 am.

Please join us. Good Bible Study can be a transformative and life changing experience.

Sunday School
There is place for young children and youth in St John’s Sunday School. Once the first hymn is sung at Sunday morning worship service, children and youth of all ages eagerly exit to join their waiting teachers in their respective classes. A very varied program consisting of learning and activities awaits the children.  The children return to the sanctuary with the receiving of the offering and teach the congregation the lesson they learned in Sunday School.  This teaching time concludes with the children leading us in The Lord’s Prayer.  The children’s learning activities promote growth in faith, service for others, Christian love for others and sharing the Good News of Jesus.

Helping Hands
This hardworking group meets on the second Wednesday of every month in order to find ways of supporting the various ministries within the church. These “helping hands” also provide for ministries outside the church walls such as the provision of meals for the Place of Hope Presbyterian Church. It organizes several fundraisers in the course of the year but its biggest activity is orchestrating the annual Bazaar and Tea generally held in November. Of course such a group would welcome many more “helping hands”.

Food Bank
In the Spirit of Micah 6:8, we believe God calls us to lives of mercy, justice and humility. One of the ways this is lived out at St. John’s is through our participation in a food bank. In partnership with St. Luke’s Lutheran Church and Winnipeg Harvest, our congregation hosts a food bank every second Thursday. It is a way for us to help families in need with one of life’s basic necessities.

Little Miracles
Every Monday morning at 9:30 am the church hall becomes alive with the chatter of tiny voices and with the music created by Joanne, our church musician.  After the joy of the music, everybody stops for snack time, followed by a time to play and learn.  This is a free program for pre-school children.  Registration is required.

Quilting Classes
All quilters are invited to join us Thursday evenings at 6:30 PM.  This is an opportunity for fellowship, learning a new craft or working away at a project in process.

Call 204-586-6932 for more information on any of these activities.
