At St. John 23, to help us with dinners, we have students bring in assigned dishes to each week. You student will be assigned 1-2 nights a semester. Each meal is broken into main dish, side dish, and dessert. We will send out a list at the beginning of each semester with assignments. If there is a conflict, please let us know so we can get a sub.
September - May: Sundays 6:00 - 8:00*
*(unless otherwise noted)
In our High School Ministry, we seek to keep building maturity in our students and help them grow in deeper relationships with each other, their leaders and, most importantly, the Lord.
We have a family worship night called BIG Night on 3 nights throughout the year that allows us to gather different generations into one worship experience. From there we take the other Sundays and focus on just the High School students as we break open more topics with our small groups, dive into service opportunities, prayer, and relationships. Some of our major events are our Michindoh Retreat in March, 23Missions in June/July, and Last Blast Retreat in Aug/Sept.
