St. John’s in the Mountains seeks to be a spiritual home for its members and is committed to giving support, prayer, resources and encouragement to meet spiritual, mental and physical needs during times of challenge, illness or transition.
A spiritual home is a place where you feel cared for and supported by God’s love through all seasons of life. The primary purpose of the Pastoral Care Commission is to encourage a spirit of compassion in the life of the congregation, and to promote ministries for healing and wholeness. The Commission also serves to equip people for pastoral ministry, and to minister to and provide resources and education to support parishioners spiritually, mentally and physically during times of challenge, illness, death or transition.
Prayers for healing and prayers concerning various life events (births, deaths, marriages, etc.) are offered each Sunday during our worship service. The weekly Parish Prayers found in the Sunday bulletin are offered up for those in our church family who are hospitalized or in a crisis situation. If you would like to be added to the prayer list, please contact the parish administrator or call 802.253.7578.
