Hearts and Minds

Conversation about how we live our faith every day

Hearts and Minds is a ministry that explores the intersection of faith and every day life. Hearts and Minds generally meets at the church on the second Friday of the month. Following the sharing of a potluck meal, a speaker or panel speaks on a topic of interest. Check the events section of the website for more information about the next Hearts and Minds event.


Hearts and Minds October 2019 follow-up  

At the Hearts and Minds meeting on Friday October 4, we heard from three panelists all in professional lay ministry. Because all three must raise their own support, and all three also depend daily on the prayers of the community, we thought it would be good to make their contact information available to the congregation at St John's so that anyone who would like to consider these things further can do so.
