In the church
There are numerous ways to be active in the life and ministry of the church. You can join groups or sign up to volunteer as you are able to share your time and talent. If you are interested in joining these groups or learning more, contact Shelley.
Worship service is successful thanks to the volunteers who donate their time to help. Opportunities to be a Saint-in-Service includes:
Online worship service
Read the Psalm: at-home video recording
Read or sing the Lord's prayer: at-home video recording
Sing the Hymn: at home video recording
Delivery of worship on DVDs to congregation members (4 to 5 homes in the Hobart-Ashwaubenon area) on Saturday afternoons.

Sunday School teacher
Sunday School teachers are needed throughout the year for 2 to 3 week units teaching to the same 5 to 10 children each unit. Teachers volunteer for predetermined topics and are offered their choice of prepared lesson plans or the opportunity to create their own lessons. Topics include Bible stories and other aspects of Christian worship. Subs are available if a teacher needs to miss a class session.
The Celebration Choir is the adult vocal choir at St. John. This choir practices every Sunday from 8:15 to 8:45 a.m. Summer months are taken off. This choir normally sings once a month and at special worship services. The choir is always looking for new members. Reading music is a plus, but not a requirement.

This choir also participates in a Christmas concert at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church and travels to Hainesville Lutheran Church in Sturgeon Bay to play during a worship service.

The Green Team currently concentrates on providing altar flowers from local markets throughout the summer and into fall. This ministry also leads various “green” projects in the church. This is a great in-reach ministry with no meetings.
