Celebrate Jarrod Conyers This Sunday, August 15, 2021

This Sunday morning, August 15, 2021 after both our Contemporary Worship (9:30 to 10:30 a.m.) and Traditional Worship services (11 a.m. to 12 noon service) , we will be celebrating our incredible Youth Minister Jarrod Conyers, and his last week with us here at St. John's UMC. Come in person and greet Jarrod and family in the Family Life Center (FLC) after both services this Sunday! And bring a card or gift to share.

Jarrod joined our church staff in July of 2003 as Director of Youth Ministries. Since that time he has mentored and pastored hundreds of our youth, helping them to draw closer to God and to foster a life of genuine and questioning faith. He has cheerfully endured countless lock-ins and overnight retreats, as well as at least a dozen M&M trips and other mission trips and projects. His impact on our youth (and on our adults) has been immeasurable.

In recent years, Jarrod also took on the role of Director of Congregational Care. He has coordinated the Stephen Ministry program, and has looked after the members of St. John's faithfully and lovingly.

Jarrod's years of successful preaching, teaching, and pastoring have resulted in him discerning a call to ministry, which was affirmed by the council and congregation of St. John's in 2020.

Beginning in September 2021, Jarrod will begin a new position as Director of Outreach and Connections at Liberty United Methodist Church in Liberty, Missouri. He and Whitney will be relocating to the Kansas City area, along with children Journey and Jonathan.

Jarrod's last Sunday with us in worship will be August 15, 2021 and we look forward to celebrating his presence and ministry among us with immense gratitude, and to sending the Conyers family off with many, many blessings.
Youth (6th to 12th grade) are invited join us in person this Sunday afternoon, July 25, 2021 for Real to Reel as we meet inside Saint John's UMC, at 2626 Arizona St NE, in the Family Life Center at 4:00 p.m. to watch a movie and then discuss it. We look forward to seeing you soon. Free admission. Bring your mask, your water bottle, and a comfy chair. 😀
Thank you so much for the beautiful messages! I am deeply touched and I am feeling so incredibly blessed. Tonight I will say a prayer of gratitude for each of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Love you all so much. 💜

Solid Ground is our youth group of young people MidHigh-Sr. High. We gather Sundays 5-7PM for worship, games, fun, fellowship, a challenge from God's Word
