Caring

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.

Pastoral Care

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.

Prayer Ministry

The power of prayer is great and, at St. John’s, we want to support the prayer needs of our members in any way we can. We focus our primary prayer chain towards those God has placed within our congregation, however, we do recognize the importance of prayer for those not in our church family. Thus, we would encourage you to share these requests with our clergy and fellow church members.
As requests are received, we will distribute your prayer request to our members according to your instructions.

A Commitment to Pray

Do you feel led to spend more time in prayer? Please stop by the church and become part of our Prayer Wall. Sign up for the day and hour you plan to set aside for prayer. You can also take a look at the chart to see what hours are available and how many people are praying alongside of you. Feel free to commit multiple hours if you would like to.

Thanks for committing to pray for St. John’s and for our faith community!

Prayer Requests

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 at 802.253.7578.

You can also submit your prayer requests by visiting our PrayerCenter. Your submissions can be named or anonymous.
